TB 'superbug' strain warning19th May 2010
A report in The Lancet has warned that a tuberculosis timebomb could explode on the world without major efforts to curb drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis.

They warn that if not enough is done potentially unstoppable forms of TB immune to all treatments could emerge in the future.
