Articles by T. Jacob John on Tuberculosis and other Topics

Professor emeritus at the Christian Medical College of Vellore, T. Jacob John has written extensively on tuberculosis and on vaccines. He was an early advocate of inactivated polio vaccine before WHO reformulated its recommendations on polio vaccines.

The last item is that rarity, an outbreak report on mumps from a developing country.

Good reading.
