Dr. Mandar Paradkar is featured in this news article about his recently published findings.

"We found that 707 of the 997 participants, or 71 per cent, tested positive for TB infection at the start, and 20, or 2%, subsequently developed the disease during the 24-month follow-up period," said researcher Mandar Paradkar from BJ Government Medical College (BJGMC) in Pune.  

"Based on these numbers, we estimate that that 12 people per 1,000 per year will get TB disease through household contact," Paradkar added.
