  We examined the attitude and knowledge of 40 supervisors and trainees as well as the impact of workshops on statistical thinking and analytical processes in a medical facility in Pakistan: 45% thought that statistics and epidemiology should be left to professional statisticians; 86% of the trainees and 58% of the supervisors, however, thought that statistics should be taught as a full-time subject. The majority of trainees [86%] were dissatisfied with the workshops compared to 33% of supervisors. Our findings indicate an urgent need to revise our approach to teaching statistics and epidemiology.

  A review was made of the records of all patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and diabetes mellitus admitted over a 5- year period to a teaching hospital in Karachi, Pakistan. Among 42358 the total number with both tuberculosis and diabetes was 173. The prevalence of tuberculosis patients, in diabetic patients was 10- times higher than in non- diabetic patients and prevalence increased with duration of diabetes. The lower lung field was most frequently involved, followed by the upper and middle. Bilateral involvement was seen in half and an associated pleural effusion in one- third of the patients. Cavitating lesions were seen in 32% of men and 15% of women.

  Associations of oral diseases with noncommunicable diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, chronic respiratory diseases, osteoporosis and chronic renal failure are widely reported in the literature from developed countries. Commonality of risk factors, changes in systemic inflammatory mediators and body metabolism play a role in this association. This paper reviews current knowledge on the burden and association of oral and systemic diseases, and highlights the paucity of information and research from the Eastern Mediterranean Region and other developing countries. A call is made for further research to understand the status and significance of oral-systemic disease associations and develop guidelines for their control in this Region.
