Examination of Venous and Capillary Blood Specimens for Assessment of Vitamin A Deficiency (Thailand Study)

This study provided the first evidence of the biological comparability between serum retinol levels estimated from venous blood and capillary blood. This critical observation provides empirical evidence that this important indicator of vitamin A status may be measured from capillary blood, which has important implications for nonclinical population-based research.

Health Human Resources Support for TB Control: Maximizing Capacity to Achieve Universal Access in India

This project brief describes PATH’s work in promoting tuberculosis (TB) control in India by contributing to health human resources development throughout the country. With support from the United States Agency for International Development, PATH worked with Initiatives Inc. to assess the state of human resources working in TB-related capacities in India, to analyze the feasibility of integrating the national TB program with the general health system, and to pilot an integrated model of TB programming within the general health system in four districts. The brief outlines lessons learned that can be applied to future health human resources development in TB-related capacities in India and globally.

Lab-on-a-Card Assay for Enteric Pathogens

We describe the functional elements of a diagnostic instrument and disposable enteric card system under development that rapidly identifies and differentiates Shigella, E. coli, Campylobacter, and Salmonella in stool samples. These elements, currently realized as microfluidic subcircuits on individual cards, are: (1) pathogen capture and lysing, (2) nucleic acid capture, (3) on-chip rapid PCR, and (4) lateral flow detection of amplicons. Presented at the Solid State Sensor, Actuator and Microsystems Workshop, June 4, 2006; Hilton Head Island, SC.

Laboratory Strengthening: Building Laboratory Capacity to Promote Universal Access to Quality Diagnosis and Expand Services for Drug-Resistant TB in India

This project brief outlines PATH’s work in strengthening national laboratories in India to correctly diagnose tuberculosis (TB), including multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). In collaboration with FIND, the World Health Organization, and other partners, PATH provided intense technical assistance to India's Revised National TB Control Program to introduce new diagnostic technologies into Indian laboratories, improve biosafety and infrastructure, build nationwide laboratory networks, and strengthen quality assurance. This work was made possible through support from the United States Agency for International Development.
