In recognition of World TB Day 2016, BMC Medicine and BMC Infectious Diseases have launched an article collection. In collaboration with the UCL-TB Centre and the LSHTM TB Centre, guest edited by Ibrahim Abubakar, Helen Fletcher, Marc Lipman and Tim McHugh. The collection includes articles addressing the most up-to-date evidence and innovation in the diagnosis, management and prevention of TB, as well as particular challenges affecting vulnerable populations.
Reported discrepancies between the information provided when the trial is registered and the data reported in publications is becoming a hot topic - especially with regards to outcome switching in randomised controlled trials. Updating the clinical trial record could be that missing link that differentiates between selective reporting and transparency of research.
Every year on 24th March, World TB Day aims to raise awareness about the disease, and this year focuses on ending TB through collaborative efforts. In recognition of this, we launched a new article collection, guest edited by leading TB researchers from UCL and LSHTM, which highlights some of the latest findings and debates in TB research.
David Moore, author of research published in BMC Medicine's tuberculosis series, talks of how new research tools could help towards eradicating tuberculosis. This blog was originally posted on the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine's website.
