What is Trip?
Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.
Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.
As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

The effect of tuberculosis control in China. China has 1.4 million new cases of tuberculosis every year, more than any country except India. A new tuberculosis control project based on short-course chemotherapy was introduced in half the country in 1991, after a national survey of tuberculosis prevalence in 1990. Another survey was done in 2000 to re-evaluate the national tuberculosis burden, providing the opportunity to assess the effect of the control project.The survey in 2000 identified (...) 375599 eligible individuals at 257 investigation points chosen from all 31 mainland provinces by stratified random sampling. Children (aged 0-14 years) were suspected of having tuberculosis if they had an induration of 10 mm or greater after a tuberculin skin test, and an abnormal fluorograph. Adults were suspected if they had a persistent cough, abnormal fluorograph, or both. Tuberculosis was diagnosed by chest radiograph, sputum-smear microscopy, and culture.365097 people were examined (97
Efficacy of direct hemoperfusion with a polymyxin Bâ€immobilized fiber column in miliary tuberculosis A 75-year-old woman presented with a 10-day history of intermittent fever, general fatigue, and progressive dyspnea. Although she had a low PaO2/FIO2 ratio, the cause of acute respiratory distress syndrome was not clear until day 9 in hospital.We treated the patient with direct hemoperfusion with a polymyxin B-immobilized fiber column incidentally; the PaO2/FIO2 ratio improved following (...) this therapy. Acid-fast bacilli, which were not seen in the sputum on admission, were detected in cultures from sputum, urine, bone marrow, liver biopsy, and blood samples, with a real-time polymerase chain reaction assay confirming tuberculosis. She was immediately transferred to a specialized tuberculosis hospital, and after a 3-month treatment, was discharged.Treatment with polymyxin B-immobilized fiber column may provide good results for pulmonary oxygenation in acute respiratory distress syndrome
