Koch, Robert -
http://www.nobelprize.org/educational/medicine/tuberculosis/readmore.html - "Robert Koch, a German physician and scientist, presented his discovery of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium (rather than heredity or other cause) that causes tuberculosis (TB), on the evening of March 24, 1882...News of Koch's discovery spread rapidly. The results were published in a German medical journal on April 10, in England after a rapid translation in The Times on April 22, and in the US in The New York Times on May 3, 1882. Robert Koch was now a famous scientist and became known as 'The Father of Bacteriology.' He was presented with the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1905 'for his investigations and discoveries in relation to tuberculosis'...
Tuberculosis, once called 'consumption' and 'white plague,' is an ancient disease that may have always been with us. Evidence of tubercular decay found in the skulls and spines of Egyptian mummies, tell us that TB has been plaguing humans for at least 4,000 years. Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician, noted that 'phthisis' (consumption) was the most widespread and fatal disease of his time."

"Study on clinical isolates collected from TB endemic areas...report that nano-silver acts as a 'potent anti-TB drug'...
July 2010 issue of Environmental Science and Technology, researchers from the Particle Technology Laboratory, Institute of Process Engineering, Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering, ETH Zurich, Switzerland, report this very finding. They found that the 'antibacterial activity of nano-silver was dominated by the germ-killing Ag(+) ions when fine Ag nano-particles (less than about 10 nm in average diameter) were employed….In contrast, when relatively larger Ag nano-particles were used, the concentration of the released Ag(+) ions was lower.”
 

SPIRITUAL

 
Brainard, David - The Price of God's Miracle Working Power by AA Allen  www.schambach.org "David Brainard, a great missionary to the American Indians, was told that he was dying of Tuberculosis...Bed rest was necessary if he was to live for more than a few weeks...He fell on his face, crying, 'Give me souls or take my soul.'  Then he rose up and went to minister...
Thousands of souls were won to Christ through 'years' of ministry."

Books = Successful Home Cell Groups Chapter 14 Preaching to a Growing Church shares that God healed him of TB as a Buddhist youth and reveled His son Jesus Christ to him as savior.  It was his reading of the Bible that equipped/endowed him with salvation/healing/knowledge/wealth/victory.  Again in the Preface of  The 4th Dimension  Cho shares his healing of TB.  The doctors gave him 3 months to live. 
God used a stranger, a young girl, to minister to him and to leave a Bible,
which upon reading changed his life and his health.
Cho, Rev David Yonggi  The 4th Dimension  www.bridgelogos.com publisher 
Chapter 6 God's Address shares the healing of TB through a husband's blessing/forgiveness of his runaway wife.
"If you have fear, the devil has an open channel through which to come and strike you; fear is negative faith.  So, as I feared tuberculosis, I contracted tuberculosis" 
Later Cho was healed by God.
Copeland, Kenneth - John G Lake - Lake in chapter 25 Adventures in God shares the healing of a 12 year old boy from Rosalia who had TB of the spine and had to wear a steel jacket 24 hours a day.  Another testimony is of a 70 lb woman,  Mrs. McDonald,  who was healed of TB.  Chapter 29 Science of Healing section Lake and Divine Healing Investigated shares healings of TB.   www.kcm.org

PERRY: Robert Kimberling was pastoring a church years ago in South Dakota. This happened to a woman who was a member of this church. It was in the 1920s during the Dust Bowl. Her cow had gotten cut on a fence, had maggots, was dying. Her husband had tuberculosis, was dying. They were about to lose their farm. She was seeking God, and I'm really abbreviating this. She saw...a dust devil…wind that just starts stirring like a little tornado.  It starts coming toward her.  She says, "Lord, what else can I take?" All of a sudden, the dust ceased, and a man stepped out of it, and it was an angel of the Lord. Told her that her husband would be healed and they would live to birth more children. Told her that the cow was going to be healed, and by the way, the maggots fell out of the cow's belly. God stitched the cow supernaturally and the cow lived.

PERRY
: She promised to give the cow to world missions, if God healed it. Now, what she said to this man who was an angel of God, "If God heals this cow, I'll sell it for world missions." The angel got angry at her, looked at her and said, "Liz," 7 words, "There are NO If’s in God's plan"…Her husband got healed.  They had more kids. When Brother Kimberling told me this, God changed my life.
PERRY:
I was praying a lot of prayers over my boy that was addicted to alcohol and drugs, who's now delivered. I was praying back then, "Lord, if You'll just touch him."  I would say to my armor bearer, Robby, "Robby, if the Lord touches Jonathan."  I kept saying if, if, if….many times. We're going to build this building if the money comes in. The Lord told me, "When you say if, you are always delaying it and you're questioning Me…Think about if. If I ... You're saying what God can't do….Do you realize the reason your boy has not been delivered is Satan can come before Me and say, 'He don't even believe you. Perry Stone doesn't even believe you because he's questioning if you're even able.'" I said, "Lord, how do I change my prayer?" He said, "Quit saying if and say when."
PERRY
: I'd say, "When my boy gets delivered, when my son comes to God, when that money comes in."  I'm telling you, everything started changing, when I took the if out. See, a man came to Jesus and said, "If you will make me whole." Jesus said, "I will." He took the if out. So there's the if of Satan. The if of Satan is, "If you be the son of God," if you. The if of Satan is always making you doubt the word. The only if God has is conditional on if my people are called by My name. The condition is not on God, 'cause He doesn't have the if. The condition is on us.  Are we going to obey? Okay?  
PERRY
: When I began to take the if out, and those 7 words, I told Brother Kimberling, I said, "You just changed my life." That story from 1929, right around 1929, the Depression.  I want people to know that when you pray, quit praying if. Quit talking if after you pray, and start using the phrase. Brother, let me tell you something. When God gets ready, when God does this, when this comes through, here's what we're going to do. He taught me a lesson that I still to this day will catch myself. I'll say, "God, forgive me. You have no ifs in your plan." You know how I know He has no ifs? Because it says the promises of God are yea and amen.

God told Oral that He would heal him.  He did through the ministry of George C Moncey.  Moncey said, "You foul, tormenting disease, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth; you come out of this young man.  Loose him and let him go free!"  Not only did the tuberculosis leave, but also the stuttering.
Roberts, Oral and Richard - Are Miracles Real? -
Chapter 1 + chapter 15 each share a testimony of a TB healing.

Miracles, like rain, can be falling, but if we do not receive, take our faith bucket to capture the heavenly gift, it may pass us by.

RICHARD: (To Oral) He (God) said, "Son, I am going to heal you and you're to take my healing power to your generation." When his older brother, my oldest uncle, and aunt, my oldest aunt, his sister, took him to a healing meeting, a man prayed a different kind of prayer. He didn't say, "Lord, if it be your will, heal this boy of tuberculosis." Instead, he said, "You foul tormenting sickness, I adjure you by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, come out of this boy, loose him and set him free." (Someone is liable to get healed right now as I'm praying that prayer right now because the power of God is just as strong now as it was then.) As the power of God came up his feet,
up his legs, into his body, suddenly he could breathe without hemorrhaging.
Before, for the period of 5 months when he would cough he would hemorrhage and spit blood across the room, and had lost the power to walk. But suddenly, the power of God came in, he could breathe all the way in and breathe all the way out. He had been born a stutterer, could hardly say his name especially when he was under pressure. They put a microphone in his face and he talked for 10 minutes before he realized he hadn't stuttered once. That was the beginning of the healing ministry of something supernatural.

Sumrall, Lester - Biography - http://www.feedthehungryaustralia.org/lestersumrall.php
"
Lester Sumrall (1913-1996) was a world-renowned pastor and evangelist, entering full-time service for God after experiencing what he recalls as the most dramatic and significant thing that ever happened to him. At the age of 17, as he lay on a deathbed suffering from tuberculosis, he received a vision. Suspended in midair to the right of his bed was a casket; on his left was a large open Bible. He heard these words: 'Lester Sumrall, which of these will you choose tonight?' He made his decision: 
He would preach the Gospel as long as he lived. When Lester Sumrall awoke the next morning, he was completely healed and served the Lord for 65 years...
'My mother...had prayed for me fervently while I was in her womb,
back when I couldn't do anything about it, except kick a little.
I was born at home, child number 6 and completely unplanned.'"

Lansoprazole May Be Useful for Treating, Preventing Tuberculosis 11/22/2017
“'It would be a major breakthrough to find a new drug with useful activity against mycobacterium tuberculosis and a favourable side effect profile, particularly a drug like lansoprazole, which costs pennies,' said Tom Yates, University College London, Institute for Global Health, London, United Kingdom...'Lansoprazole, a well-established treatment for stomach complaints, may also be useful for treating tuberculosis.'”  Reference: http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pmed.1002457
