NIH Clinical Center's 2006 Medicine for the Public lecture series
Physician-scientists working to translate science into medicine will deliver lectures and take questions from the audience. Medicine for the Public is a series of lectures on disease topics by NIH scientists sponsored by the NIH Clinical Center. Presented every fall since 1978, the series was developed as a means of reaching out to the general public with information on medical research. These free, public talks are designed to help non-scientists understand medical science and appreciate the importance of medical research in our lives.
Tuberculosis in the 21st century : old problem, new understanding / Steven M. Holland.
Holland, Steven M. National Institutes of Health (U.S.)
Dr. Steven Holland of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) lectures on four key questions related to tuberculosis (TB): what is it, who gets it, how is it treated, and why doesn't everyone exposed to it get sick? He gives a retrospective look at the disease, beginning with slides showing the mummified remains of an Egyptian whose lungs show evidence of a TB-like disease and its physiological impacts, including an abscess and a deformed spine. Currently, out of about two billion people infected, there are about nine million active cases, mainly in less-developed regions in tropical climates, and among those who are HIV-infected and otherwise immuno-compromised. Holland explores the reasons for these trends and the current available treatments.
