TB study in Paraguay has started!

Jun 2 2014

A TB study focusing on extra-pulmonary tuberculosis has just started at Instituto de Enfermedades Respiratorias y del Ambiente (INERAM) in Asuncion, Paraguay.

The study is being coordinated by Dr Cecile Magis and Dr Jan-Bart Yntema from Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

First, they will include pulmonary-TB patients and healthy controls in order to build a TB-model for Paraguay. It is important to know if this TB-model differs from models being recorded elsewhere in the world. Next, they will include extra-pulmonary TB patients as mentioned before.

For some impressions, see the pictures below:
