Quantiferon for Detection of Latent Tuberculosis in Healthcare Workers

The accuracy of tuberculin skin test (TST) for detecting latent tuberculosis is limited in countries with a high proportion of population having received vaccination with the BCG. We aim t...

Adverse Drug Reactions to Anti-TB Drugs in the Treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection

The investigators aim to study the prevalence of adverse reactions of anti-tuberculosis (TB) drugs in latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI), and determine the risk factors of anti-TB drug-r...

Induced Sputum Versus Bronchoscopy in Smear Negative Pulmonary Tuberculosis

This is a randomised study that compares different diagnostic approaches for diagnosing pulmonary tuberculosis in patients suspected of pulmonary tuberculosis in whom the three classic (no...

Completion and Acceptability of Treatment Across Primary Care and the commUnity for Latent Tuberculosis

This study investigates whether recent migrants to the United Kingdom are more likely to complete treatment for Latent Tuberculosis Infection (LTBI) if they are treated in the community (b...

Impact of HIV Infection on Latent Tuberculosis (TB) Among Patients With HIV-TB Co-infection

HIV induced altered representation and function of regulatory T cell subsets (NKT and Treg cells) impair the protective T cell response against M.tuberculosis and disrupts LTBI, thus facil...

Loss to follow up during diagnosis of presumptive pulmonary tuberculosis at a tertiary care hospital.

Sputum microscopy is still used for diagnosis of drug-sensitive pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (TB programs) aims to rapidly diagnose and treat all cases of...

Latent tuberculosis infection and tuberculosis in children and adolescents.

To describe the characteristics of patients diagnosed with tuberculosis and latent tuberculosis infection.

Anatomic and Cellular Niches for Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Latent Tuberculosis Infection.

Latent tuberculosis has been recognized for over a century, but discovery of new niches, where Mycobacterium tuberculosis resides, continues. We evaluated literature on M.tuberculosis locations during...

Evaluation of Xpert MTB/RIF assay for detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in stool samples of adults with pulmonary tuberculosis.

The Xpert MTB/RIF (Xpert) assay technology allows rapid and sensitive diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) from sputum specimens. However, diagnosis of PTB is difficult for patients who cannot pr...

Molecular diagnosis of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis in sputum samples by melting curve analysis.

To analyze melting curves for the diagnosis of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis from sputum samples.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dormant form of TUBERCULOSIS where the person shows no obvious symptoms and no sign of the causative agent (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) in the SPUTUM despite being positive for tuberculosis infection skin test.

Development of a library collection, including the determination and coordination of selection policy, assessment of needs of users and potential users, collection use studies, collection evaluation, identification of collection needs, selection of materials, planning for resource sharing, collection maintenance and weeding, and budgeting.

Tuberculosis of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges (TUBERCULOSIS, MENINGEAL), most often caused by MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS and rarely by MYCOBACTERIUM BOVIS. The infection may be limited to the nervous system or coexist in other organs (e.g., TUBERCULOSIS, PULMONARY). The organism tends to seed the meninges causing a diffuse meningitis and leads to the formation of TUBERCULOMA, which may occur within the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal spaces. Tuberculous involvement of the vertebral column (TUBERCULOSIS, SPINAL) may result in nerve root or spinal cord compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp717-20)

Pathological conditions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM caused by infection of MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS. Tuberculosis involvement may include the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.

TUBERCULOSIS that involves any region of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, mostly in the distal ILEUM and the CECUM. In most cases, MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS is the pathogen. Clinical features include ABDOMINAL PAIN; FEVER; and palpable mass in the ileocecal area.
