  Tuberculosis has claimed its victims throughout much of known human history. It reached epidemic proportions in Europe and North America during the 18th and 19th centuries, earning the sobriquet, “Captain Among these Men of Death.” Then it began to decline.   “Based on an impressive reading of the medical literature and some rich archival collections, this book does much with the history of tuberculosis into the early s, with a focus on global TB policy that will be quite useful for the many people interested and involved today in TB control.”—David S. Jones, author of Rationalizing Epidemics: Meanings and Uses of American Indian Reviews: 2.

In a landmark study, the French army physician Jean-Antoine Villemin demonstrated in that tuberculosis could be transmitted from humans to animals and hypothesized that a specific organism caused the disease. It was not until , however, that Robert Koch convincingly demonstrated that M. tuberculosis was the cause of tuberculosis.   Of those who got two doses of the GSK vaccine, only 13 developed active tuberculosis during three years of follow-up, according to the new study published in .

  The following article titled “Treatment of Tuberculosis: A Historical Perspective” by John F. Murray, M.D., Dean E. Schraufnagel, M.D., and Philip C. Hopewell, M.D., is the second in the series published in the Annals of the American Thoracic Society. I hope you enjoy learning about the seminal discoveries in the conquest of tuberculosis.   Virginia G. Williams RN HV BNurs MSc is Head of the Nursing Division for the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (UNION), and Lecturer in the Public Health and Primary Care Unit at the St. Bartholomew's School Reviews: 3.
