Pneumonia is the most common infectious disease related cause of death worldwide, killing nearly 1 million children under the age of 5 years and more that 20% of elderly people over 65 years old. Despite the use of antibiotics and improvements in supportive care we have not made much progress in improving survival of patients with pneumonia. Dr. Ricardo Jorge Paixao Jose (University College, London, UK) will discuss research to understand the role of inflammation with a view to developing more targeted approaches to limit the extent of this infectious disease.
Tuberculosis also presents a significant challenge for global health and Dr Ning Tang (Abbott Molecular Inc, USA) will talk about the clinical management of tuberculosis and tools being developed to tackle this commonly acquired infectious disease
