Does tuberculosis still exist?

Yes. Tuberculosis very well exists.Though TB is not prevalent in developed countries like USA, it remains a world-wide public health problem, 85% of all TB cases are in the region of South East Asia, Africa and Western Pacific.During the year 2008, there were approximately 9 million incident cases (new cases) globally with 11million prevalent (old + new) cases in the same year..with 1.8 million deaths!!HIV patients are most prone to TB. Out of the 11million cases mentioned above, 1.4 million were of HIV-associated TB.The main reason for TB to be so prevalent is poor socio-economic status, therefore malnutrition, low hygiene, overcrowding-leading to spread of diseases.The treatment regime is under DOTS (direct observed treatment short course) programme which is a 6 to 8months long course, which patients, unless counselled, don't tend to follow, in spite of being given free medicines..Other reasons are the side-effects of drugs.The major problem we face now is the emergence of multi drug resistance (MDR) TB (0.15 million deaths due to MDR-TB) and extensively drug resistant (XDR) TB(50,000 deaths), wherein the tubercle bacilli DO NOT respond to the drugs!!INDIA has the highest TB burden in the world, accounting for 20% of the global cases. Here, TB kills 0.32 million cases every year.

What is MSXML 6.0 parser?

Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) allows customers to build high-performance XML-based applications that provide a high degree of interoperability with other applications that adhere to the XML 1.0 standard. Among the core services MSXML provides is developer support for the following: * The Document Object Model (DOM), a standard library of application programming interfaces (APIs) for accessing XML documents. * Helper APIs to assist with programming for XML namespace or the HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) when it is used to send data directly between Web servers. * The XML Data Reduced schema definition language (XDR), which Microsoft introduced support for to assist with XML schema working needs while awaiting the now final W3C standard XML Schema Definition (XSD) language. Support for XDR is available in MSXML 3.0 through MSXML 5.0. MSXML 6.0 does not support XDR. * The Simple API for XML (SAX), a programmatic alternative to DOM-based processing. * The Schema Object Model (SOM), an additional set of APIs for accessing XML Schema documents programmatically that was introduced in MSXML 4.0 and later. * XML Digital Signatures support, which provides the ability to sign and verify XML document data through digital encryption. This support is only available in MSXML 5.0 for Microsoft Office Applications. It was removed in MSXML 6.0.
