Posted April 04, 2020 09:14:25A rare disease that can be triggered by an infection can kill up to 60,000 men and is a major health concern for the nation.
Key points:A man has been diagnosed with Kaposi sarcoma and the virus is being treated in a clinic in HyderabadA case has been confirmed in the state of Bihar and a man who was found to have the disease was recently flown to Mumbai for treatmentThe men’s cancer rate in the country is more than 30 times the national averageMen in India are being diagnosed with the Kaposi and meningococcal meningitis meningitosis, but it is not clear whether this is linked to the disease.
Kaposi sarCOME is the most deadly and often fatal type of meningocarcinoma.
“Kapos” means “little children” and is derived from the Latin word for “little boy” and “cattle”.
“We don’t have an answer yet,” said Dr. Ramesh Thakur, a senior professor of pediatrics at the Tata Memorial Institute for Medical Research in Mumbai.
“This is the first case of Kaposi in India and we have not detected any other cases.”
We do know that Kapos is transmitted via the saliva of a cow.
The cows’ saliva has to be washed off the hands and in the case of this case, the cows’ hands had been wiped with a cloth.
“In the past, it was thought that Kaposi was caused by the ingestion of raw cow dung.
But that was not confirmed.”
Researchers in India have identified four other Kapos cases that have been linked to cattle, but the number of Kapos deaths has been far higher than the national number.
“There is a concern about the number because of the small number of cases in India,” said Thakurs team leader, Dr. Prasad Prasun.
“Most of the cases are due to other causes, such as the ingestion by a person or by someone who had eaten raw cow’s dung, and the fact that Kapo cases are very uncommon in India.”
In India, Kapos infections are spread through contact with infected cows or sheep.
But in some areas of India, people may contract Kapos from eating raw or undercooked meat.
Kopas causes about 10,000 deaths in India each year, but a few people are diagnosed with this deadly disease and go on to develop Kaposi.
The vast majority of Kapo patients die within a few years.
Thakur said Kapos was diagnosed in a man in Bihar who had been diagnosed and treated for Kapos.
“He was very weak and had an elevated fever,” Thakurst said.
“After a few days, his condition deteriorated and he died.”
Kapo has been linked in the last 20 years to an outbreak of human papillomavirus (HPV), but this is the only known case of the virus causing Kaposi-related death.
India is also home to one of the world’s highest rates of KapoS infections, which occur in about 30 per cent of the population.
The incidence of Kapoz has risen dramatically in India.
More than 10,600 men in the world have been diagnosed in India with the disease, according to a World Health Organization (WHO) report released this month.
Kamlesh Thakum, an official with the Maharashtra government, said the government was working on a vaccination program to address the meningopharmacy in the province.
“The state government is working on various vaccines, including a vaccine for meningoplasties,” Thapur said.
The men who are infected with Kapos are often unable to have children.
Thakurt said this would have been possible in India if Kapos had been linked earlier to a human papilovirus outbreak.
“If we could have linked Kapos to a previous outbreak, that would have saved lives,” he said.
Thapur added that it was important to understand the disease in the right way.
“Many people do not understand the true cause of Kaposa,” he explained.
“I think that the only way we can protect ourselves and our children is to understand it and understand the risks.”
The men are being treated at a clinic on the outskirts of the Indian capital, Hyderabad, in a private clinic.
The state government said it was committed to addressing the problem and hoped the clinic would be open by April 15.
“It is difficult to treat the men who have been identified and treated.
We are working on getting them vaccinated,” said Rakesh Sharma, secretary-general of the Maharashtra State Allopathic Association.
