Epidemiology of the TB Disease

Tuberculosis epidemiology is the field of science that is concerned with the study of health and disease within populations and the various circumstances that lead to these conditions, with a goal of preventing the spread of disease. One-third of the world's population has been infected with M. tuberculosis. 13.7 million Chronic active cases, were reported by 2007 and 8.8 million new cases were roughly calculated in 2010 and 1.45 million deaths, are frequently noted in developing countries.  Out of these, 0.35 million deaths occur in those co-infected with HIV. In 2012, around 450,000 people developed MDR-TB. TB incidence varies with age. In Africa, TB chiefly affects adolescents and young adults. However, in United States, TB has gone from high to low incidence, where TB is mainly a disease of older people, or of the immunosuppressed.

Since 1985, Lung cancer has been the most quotidian cancer in the globe. Worldwide, lung cancer, new cancer diagnosis and cancer fatalities. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States and is related to age. Lung cancer intensifies with age, especially after age 60. The average age of patients diagnosed with lung cancer is 70 years.
