New rapid test for TB welcomed

first_imgWelcoming the approval of the rapid test, MRC Acting President Dr Ali Dhansay noted that the test also allows for testing for resistance of the organism to one of the frontline TB drugs. Though there have been major improvements in TB care and control, about 1.7-million people worldwide were killed by TB in 2009, with 9.4-million people developing active TB. Reduced prices for 116 countries Major milestone Evidence to date indicates that implementation of the test could result in a three-fold increase in the diagnosis of patients with MDR-TB and a doubling in the number of HIV-associated TB cases diagnosed in areas with high rates of TB and HIV. Roscigno noted that preferential pricing would be granted to 116 low- and middle-income countries where TB is endemic, with additional reductions in price once there was significant volume of demand. 9 December 2010 “It also represents new hope for the millions of people who are at the highest risk of TB and drug-resistant disease. We have the scientific evidence, we have defined the policy, and now we aim to support implementation for impact in countries,” said Raviglione. Testing for resistance The organisation has called for the fully automated NAAT to be rolled out under clearly defined conditions and as part of national plans for TB and MDR-TB care and control. WHO Stop TB Department Director Dr Mario Raviglione said the new test represented a major milestone for global TB diagnosis and care.center_img The WHO is also releasing recommendations and guidelines for countries to incorporate the test in their programmes, including testing protocols to optimise the use and benefits of the new technology in those persons where it is needed most. Endorsement of the fully automated Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) by the World Health Organisation (WHO) followed 18 months of rigorous assessment of its field effectiveness in the early diagnosis of TB. Policy and operational guidance are also being issued based on findings from a series of expert reviews and a global consultation held in Geneva last week, attended by more than 100 representatives from national programmes, development aid agencies and international partners. The South African Medical Research Council (MRC) has welcomed the approval of a new rapid test for tuberculosis (TB) that could revolutionise TB care and control. The test provides an accurate diagnosis in about 100 minutes, compared to current tests that take up to three months. Foundation for Innovative and New Diagnostics (FIND) CEO Dr Giorgio Roscigno announced that the foundation had negotiated with the manufacturer, Cepheid, for a 75% reduction in the current market price for countries most affected by TB. SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material He said, however, that the “gold standard” of TB culture remained, since the new test did not reveal sensitivity to other TB drugs. Its effectiveness has also been tested in cases of Multi-Drug Resistant TB (MDR-TB) and TB complicated by HIV infection, which are more difficult to diagnose. “The new test will certainly increase access to treatment and dramatically decrease treatment time for our patients, especially those with HIV co-infection,” said Dhansay. “We are also pleased that the issue of cost has been factored in. Once the test is implemented, the cost-benefit will have to be evaluated.”last_img read more

Yahoo Uses Windows Azure To Build Flickr App for Windows Phone 7 and Tablets

first_imgHere’s a twist. Yahoo is launching a native Flickr app for Windows 7 and Windows Phone 7 later this month that leverages Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.The app connects Flickr data with Windows Azure via an API. Using Windows Azure, Yahoo is able to optimize the images for the Windows 7 environments and on the Windows Phone 7 devices. For example, let’s say someone is using the Flickr app on a Windows 7 tablet device and decides to view one of their albums. The app makes a call to Windows Azure, which computes the context for the way the image should be viewed on the device.On a Windows Phone 7 device, the Flickr app shows images in its “live” tiles interface. These are flat, square tiles on the device. They represent your email inboxes, phone calls and apps among other things. Flickr images appear in the tiles. Or for instance, you can tap on a tile to get a map via Bing and then swipe to view a comments section.The native Flickr app, built by Yahoo on .Net, demonstrates how multiple cloud platforms can be used to provide experiences for the user across multiple devices.“Flickr is synonymous with the cloud,” said Marcus Spiering, a product manager at Yahoo responsible for Flickr mobile products. “We store the image data, which is massive. What we don’t have is a synchronized, connected device experience.”He said technically it would be possible to offer the service directly from Yahoo instead of using Windows Azure but they wanted to get the app out fast. And they wanted to build an experience that was engaging for the user across multiple, connected devices. “Azure allowed us to build an app quickly and do it with quality,” Spiering said.The complexity arises in how the data and metadata gets handled. Azure provides that capability. In addition, Azure also serves as the platform for development, testing and deployment, plus has the capability to add new features to the Flickr app. According to Microsoft:Windows Azure Storage is used to manage the synchronization of data. By exposing the interface to this new functionality using RESTful services, Flickr can readily extend this functionality across a diversity of other platforms and devices.The Flickr app built on Azure shows that the true opportunity in the cloud is in how multiple cloud environments can be accessed to create a rich experience for people across connected devices. By leveraging Azure, Yahoo has the benefit of the Azure platform, an environment for app development that has gained a fair degree of credibility.For Microsoft, it’s a clear win. Flickr is one of the most popular photo services in the world. It provides a blue chip capability for people who use Windows 7 or Windows Phone 7 devices. As Microsoft pushes deeper into the mobile and tablet markets, Azure could prove to be a welcome asset for attracting additional high-profile Web properties to its platform.The Flickr app will be available Jan. 31.

first_imgMan Utd boss Mourinho pleased to involve Garner, Greenwoodby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Jose Mourinho was happy to involve Joe Garner and Mason Greenwood in last week’s Champions League defeat at Valencia.The two teens were involved in the traveling party.Mourinho said, “I think it’s always a nice experience for them even if they don’t play, to be involved, to feel a new habitat and, I think, to even feel the pressure of being on the bench and thinking ‘maybe I have to play’. “To feel that extra adrenalin and responsibility, I think it’s always a good experience for them. But they had pre-season with us, they trained with us many, many times. Last week they were training with us almost every day, so it’s not really something new for the boys.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgOxlade-Chamberlain: It’s on me to give Liverpool something differentby Paul Vegas12 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAlex Oxlade-Chamberlain is determined to make a big impression at Liverpool this season.The Liverpool man missed out on last year’s title race and wants to play a key part in this campaign to make up for it.The 26-year-old told Liverpoolfc.com: “It’s on me to try to bring a little something: run with the ball, link the play and fit in with the rhythm of the boys up front to help them. What they achieved last year was extraordinary.“To miss out [on the title] in the way we did was heartbreaking, so as a team we need to do better. With teams like Man City, and how relentless they are, we know we have to do more.“For me as an individual, my goals are to get back in and around the team and to help push this team forward a little bit more. If we can do that, I can start thinking about what I need to add to my game. For now, the next step is to help the team.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Microplastics are harming our drinking water

first_imgResearchers have found plastics in our waste streams are breaking down into tiny particles, causing potentially catastrophic consequences for human health and our aquatic systems. For the study, researchers investigated nano and microplastics in water and wastewater treatment processes. The team found that tiny pieces of plastic break down further during treatment processes, reducing the performance of treatment plants and impacting on water quality. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”Due to their small size, nano and microplastics can easily be ingested by living organisms and travel along water and wastewater treatment processes.” “In large quantities they impact the performance of water treatment processes by clogging up filtration units and increasing wear and tear on materials used in the design of water treatment units,” researchers said. Approximately 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally each year and up to 13 million tons of that is released into rivers and oceans, contributing to approximately 250 million tons of plastic by 2025. According to the researchers, since plastic materials are not generally degradable through weathering or ageing, this accumulation of plastic pollution in the aquatic environment creates a major concern.last_img read more
