Hb D-Los Angeles [beta121(GH4)Glu>Gln] and Hb Beograd [beta121(GH4)Glu>Val]: Implications for their laboratory diagnosis
and genetic origins.
Kalla, in the article looking at antibiotic-associated diarrhoeal syndromes, gives an excellent overview of this all-important subject, while the article by Bamford on the modern laboratory diagnosis
of tuberculosis gives insight on new technologies coming to the fore in this age of multiple drug resistance and extremely drug-resistant tuberculosis.
of sexually transmitted infections in women with genital discharge in Madagascar: implications for primary care.
Testing for the presence of a specific bacterium intimated that clinical diagnosis was less reliable than laboratory diagnosis
, and physicians feared usurpation of their authority in an era when it was no easy task to attract patients.

The enormous global problem of tuberculosis (with roughly one-third of the world's population infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis), coupled with an increasing incidence of infections caused by nontuberculous mycobacteria, present unique challenges for the laboratory diagnosis
of mycobacterial infections.
