A decade later, the center, located at the Ubay Stock Farm in Bohol started milking carabaos, a largely rare thing in a province whose idea of a carabao is only as extensive as a beast of burden and a meat source.

Second MDR-TB center Opens at Gallares soon

TAGBILARAN CITY, Bohol, August 20(PIA) –Boholanos who might have developed a multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) may have eased worries soon as the province’s second satellite treatment center would open at the GovCelestinoGallares Memorial Hospital within the month.

When the tuberculosis does not respond to most potent anti-TB drugs: isoniazid and rifampicin, then the person hasMDR-TB. Health authorities have aired their concern over the emerging TB-treatment mismanagement. While most people with tuberculosis are cured by a strictly followed, six-month drug regimen that is provided to patients with support and supervision, inappropriate or incorrect use of antimicrobial drugs, or ineffective formulations of drugs, self-medication and premature treatment interruption can cause drug resistance, which can then be transmitted, especially in crowded settings such as prisons and hospitals, Rances bared at the Kapihansa PIA Thursday. Patients under treatment who stop upon noticing that they are getting well already, are more likely to develop MDR-TB and would need an even more potent drugs while treatment becomes increasingly difficult. When there is treatment available, it is expensive, limited and are not always available. When it is, some patients may also experience adverse effects of the drugs. As...
