Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A Special Issue entitled “Tuberculosis, Lung Infection and Public Health " in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is being planned. For detailed information on the journal, please use the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.

Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease usually caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) bacteria. Tuberculosis generally affects the lung and cause severe lung infection, but can also affect other parts of the body. Most infections show no symptoms, in which case it is known as latent tuberculosis. About 10% of latent infections progress to active disease which, if left untreated, kills about half of those affected. Typical symptoms of active TB are a chronic cough with blood-containing mucus, fever, night sweats and weight loss. It was historically called consumption due to the weight loss. Infection of other organs can cause a wide range of symptoms. Tuberculosis has caused serious harm to global public health.

We invite clinical, epidemiological and translational research papers and reviews which examine the clinically relevant aspects of tuberculosis and other lung diseases. Manuscripts that deal with the epidemiology (transmission, diagnosis, treatment and prevention) of tuberculosis and its related lung infection are very welcome. We will also evaluate other types of articles, such as systematic reviews (and meta-analyses) and commentaries.
