We’re Losing the Fight’: Tuberculosis Batters a Venezuela in Crisis

Article Aeonose project Venezuela

Tuberculosis (TB) is the world’s deadliest infectious disease, and a top ten cause of death worldwide. Each year, almost 2 million people die from TB. Venezuela is one of the high burden countries with devastating consequences. In Caracas, a medical team (PI: Dr. Jacobus de Waard, mentioned in the NYT-article) is conducting a study for fast TB-screening using an electronic nose (‘Aeonose’) for exhaled-breath analysis. Improved treatment regimes and diagnostics are urgently needed!
