Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)
Tuberculosis — United States, 2017
March 23, 2018
Data from CDC’s National TB Surveillance System show a total of 9,093 U.S. tuberculosis (TB) cases in 2017, indicating slight declines in TB cases (-1.8%) and TB rates (-2.5%) compared with 2016. Eliminating TB in the United States requires a continued effort to control TB disease and expanded testing and treatment of latent TB infection to prevent the development of TB disease.
Preliminary Incidence and Trends of Infections with Pathogens Transmitted Commonly Through Food — Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network, 10 U.S. Sites, 2006–2017
March 23, 2018
The number of foodborne infections diagnosed by a newer type of test called a culture-independent diagnostic test, or CIDT, is increasing. CIDTs are revealing many infections that would not have been diagnosed before because of limited testing, such as infections caused by Cyclospora, Yersinia, Vibrio, and Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli (STEC) non-O157.
Geographic Variations in Arthritis Prevalence, Health-Related Characteristics, and Management — United States, 2015
March 16, 2018
Arthritis is a common chronic condition affecting an estimated 54 million adults in the United States. CDC analyzed data from the 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System to characterize arthritis among adults aged ≥18 years in the United States (including Guam and Puerto Rico). This report provides state-level estimates of arthritis prevalence among adults. Health-related characteristics including general health, leisure-time physical activity and obesity, activity limitations, and pain as well as arthritis management measures were estimated. Possible state-specific clustering of health-related characteristics also was examined. The findings highlight notable geographic variability in arthritis prevalence, health-related characteristics, and management.
