Xpert MTB/RIF test for diagnosing pulmonary tuberculosis and rifampicin resistance in adults

Tuberculosis (TB) causes tremendous suffering worldwide, especially in low‐income and middle‐income countries. In 2012, 8.6 million people developed TB disease (active TB) for the first time and around 1.3 million people died. Most people with TB can be cured if the disease is diagnosed and properly treated. One of the problems in treating TB is that the bacteria become resistant to antibiotics. Detecting TB and TB drug resistance quickly is important for improving health, reducing deaths, and decreasing the spread of TB in communities.

Green tea for the prevention of cancer

Fifty‐one studies with more than 1.6 million participants, mainly of observational nature were included in this systematic review. Studies looked for an association between green tea consumption and cancer of the digestive tract, gynecological cancer including breast cancer, urological cancer including prostate cancer, lung cancer and cancer of the oral cavity. The majority of included studies were of medium to high methodological quality. The evidence that the consumption of green tea might reduce the risk of cancer was conflicting. This means, that drinking green tea remains unproven in cancer prevention, but appears to be safe at moderate, regular and habitual use.
