Prior to the introduction of effective treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis, there was little consensus on the potential health risk of pregnancy among infected women. While, intuitively, pregnancy was viewed as a risk for tuberculosis disease and mortality, early studies could not establish such a link with any great certainty. Our case study combines the methods of family reconstitution and a case-control approach to explore the possibility that the physiological and social strains of recent… Expand
Deadly occupations: Assessing tuberculosis and accidental mortality among male workers in Sydney and Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, 1909–1917
TLDR
Logistic regression results indicate that, among the men who died, occupation is a significant predictor for accidental deaths (relative to all other causes of death) but not for tuberculosis-related deaths. Expand

TLDR
The impact of influenza on the magnitude of sex differentials in the life expectancy at birth fell during epidemic year but returned to a level comparable to that of the pre-epidemic period. Expand
ASSESMENT OF QUALITY OF LIFE AND OXIDATIVE STRESS IN TUBERCULOSIS PATIENTS VISITING DIRECTLY OBSERVED TREATMENT SHORT COURSE CENTRES OF WARANGAL
TLDR
The study showed that in TB patients free radical activity is quite high and antioxidant levels are low and a suitable antioxidant therapy may improve QoL and prove beneficial supplementation for fast recovery. Expand

Deaths attributable to childbearing in Matlab, Bangladesh: indirect causes of maternal mortality questioned.
TLDR
This study highlights the complexity of the concept of indirect causes of maternal mortality and clearly illustrates the inherent difficulties in estimating the excess risk of death attached to pregnancy and the puerperium. Expand
Effect of pregnancy on the risk of developing active tuberculosis.
TLDR
Results fail to confirm earlier suggestions that pregnancy increases the risk that a woman of child-bearing age infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis will develop active TB. Expand
Tuberculosis and pregnancy. Five- to ten-year review of 215 patients in their fertile age.
TLDR
It can be concluded that pregnancy, birth, puerperium, and lactation do not presuppose any risk of relapse of pulmonary tuberculosis when it is adequately treated, even in patients in whom an inactive postchemotherapy cavity persisted. Expand
Pregnancy and Pulmonary Tuberculosis
TLDR
Results of treatment with the newer antituberculosis drugs show that the disease progressed in less than 1%" of patients between 1957 and 1972 compared to 3 to 4% of patients from 1933 to 1956. Expand
Infant mortality and famine: a study in historical epidemiology in northern England.
TLDR
The lags between neonatal and post-neonatal mortalities and wheat prices, together with the analysis of the famine of 1623, support the hypothesis that neonatal mortality was related to malnutrition in pregnancy whereas post-nursing mortality was primarily directly dependent on exogenous causes in the first year of life. Expand
Tuberculosis. An old disease but a new threat to the mother, fetus, and neonate.
TLDR
The clinician caring for pregnant women should be aware of the risk factors for tuberculosis infection and disease and should test women and families according to risk. Expand
Tuberculosis in pregnancy.
TLDR
With the advent of satisfactory drugs to treat tuberculosis, the effects on pregnancy are not as serious as before, however, particularly in low socioeconomic populations, tuberculosis probably increases the prematurity and abortion rate. Expand
Tuberculosis in association with pregnancy.
TLDR
Patients with tuberculosis associated with pregnancy have the same clinical presentation as nonpregnant patients, and the drugs that appear to be safest for the fetus include isoniazid, para-aminosalicylic acid, ethambutol, and rifampin. Expand
Gender differentials in tuberculosis: the role of socio-economic and cultural factors.

TLDR
The review points to the many gaps that exist in knowledge and understanding of gender differentials in TB and TB control, and argues for increased efforts to identify and address gender differential in the control of TB. Expand
Tuberculosis mortality in England and Wales during 1982-1992: its association with poverty, ethnicity and AIDS.
TLDR
Regression analysis indicates that it is the overcrowding and poverty among ethnic populations that is significant for their tuberculosis mortality, and provides evidence that AIDS has little influence on the level of tuberculosis mortality in the wider population. Expand
