A paper published today (18.8.17) outlines the results of a Welsh Government funded research project that takes the world a step closer to swift and easy diagnosis of Tuberculosis (TB).
TB is one of the world's deadliest diseases. Just two years ago, 10.4 million people around the world became sick with TB and there were 1.8 million TB-related deaths worldwide. In 2015, 35% of HIV deaths were due to co-infection with TB.
Chemists at Bangor University have been working to develop quick and easy to use diagnosis kits that can be used to give an instant result (currently blood samples from the patient have to be sent to a laboratory, which takes far too long).
