There is a need for a tuberculosis-control program in family day-care homes.

Smokers using >5 cigarettes per day had higher risk of patient delay and health system delay. Total delay in the diagnosis of tuberculosis in Banke district is shorter compared to other places in Nepal and neighbouring countries.

It is able to detect M. tuberculosis in clinical samples within 1 day, reducing the time to diagnosis in comparison with culture.

The data provide compelling evidence that human tuberculosis did not originate from the present-day bovine form.

This result could lead to a better understanding of present day evolutionary processes, especially the emergence or re-emergence of non-tuberculosis mycobacteria infection and disease.
