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.

Diagnosis of Tuberculosis in Adults and Children: Official ATS/IDSA/CDC Clinical Practice Guidelines Clinical Infectious Diseases Diagnosis of TB in Adults and Children • CID 2017:64 (15 January) • e1 Official American Thoracic Society/Infectious Diseases Society of America/Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Clinical Practice Guidelines: Diagnosis of Tuberculosis in Adults and Children David M. Lewinsohn, 1,a Michael K. Leonard, 2,a Philip A. LoBue, 3,a David L. Cohn, 4 Charles L. Daley (...) Health, Nashville, Tennessee, 14 Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene, Madison, and 15 University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock Background. Individuals infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) may develop symptoms and signs of disease (tuber- culosis disease) or may have no clinical evidence of disease (latent tuberculosis infection [LTBI]). Tuberculosis disease is a leading cause of infectious disease morbidity and mortality worldwide, yet many questions related to its
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
Providers' knowledge of diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis using vignettes: evidence from rural Bihar, India Almost 25% of all new cases of tuberculosis (TB) worldwide are in India, where drug resistance and low quality of care remain key challenges.We conducted an observational, cross-sectional study of healthcare providers' knowledge of diagnosis and treatment of TB in rural Bihar, India, from June to September 2012. Using data from vignette-based interviews with 395 most commonly
Potential impact of spatially targeted adult tuberculosis vaccine in Gujarat, India. Some of the most promising vaccines in the pipeline for tuberculosis (TB) target adolescents and adults. Unlike for childhood vaccines, high-coverage population-wide vaccination is significantly more challenging for adult vaccines. Here, we aimed to estimate the impact of vaccine delivery strategies that were targeted to high-incidence geographical 'hotspots' compared with randomly allocated vaccination. We
Peritoneal tuberculosis with elevated CA-125 mimicking ovarian cancer with carcinomatosis peritonei: Crucial CT findings Preoperative diagnosis of peritoneal tuberculosis is often difficult because of confusion with ovarian cancer. A 56-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with abdominal fullness. Ascites, prominent bilateral ovaries, and elevated CA-125 were noted. Computed tomography showed thickened peritoneum and strandings in the mesentery and omentum. Exploratory laparotomy (...) was performed under the provisional diagnosis of ovarian cancer, but the final diagnosis was peritoneal tuberculosis. Careful evaluation of bilateral fallopian tubes and ovaries and peritoneum are helpful for correct diagnosis.
Diabetes Mellitus as Hub for Tuberculosis Infection: A Snapshot Tuberculosis (TB) still remains the thorn in the flesh of efficient therapeutics affecting one-third of global population annually. There are several factors that enhance the susceptibility to TB infections including malnutrition, smoking, and immunocompromised conditions such as AIDS. In the recent years, growing body of evidence has gained considerable prominence which suggests that Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is individual risk
Tuberculosis in migrants moving from high-incidence to low-incidence countries: a population-based cohort study of 519 955 migrants screened before entry to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. Tuberculosis elimination in countries with a low incidence of the disease necessitates multiple interventions, including innovations in migrant screening. We examined a cohort of migrants screened for tuberculosis before entry to England, Wales, and Northern Ireland and tracked the development (...) of disease in this group after arrival.As part of a pilot pre-entry screening programme for tuberculosis in 15 countries with a high incidence of the disease, the International Organization for Migration screened all applicants for UK visas aged 11 years or older who intended to stay for more than 6 months. Applicants underwent a chest radiograph, and any with results suggestive of tuberculosis underwent sputum testing and culture testing (when available). We tracked the development of tuberculosis
Psychosocial wellbeing of patients with multidrug resistant tuberculosis voluntarily confined to long-term hospitalisation in Nigeria Patient isolation, which is a widely successful treatment strategy for tuberculosis (TB), has been suspected to have effects on patient psychosocial wellbeing. We assessed the psychosocial wellbeing of multidrug resistant TB (MDR-TB) patients in voluntary and isolated long-term hospitalisation in Nigeria.98 accessible and consenting patients in four drug
