Clinical Concordance Evaluation of T-SPOT®.TB Assay Performance (T-Cell SelectTM Study)

2019-10-31 14:29:34 | BioPortfolio


The objective is to achieve 90% overall, positive and negative clinical concordance between results of the T-SPOT.TB assay, using cells isolated via density gradient centrifugation and positive selection using the T-Cell Select kit, between 0-55 hours following venepuncture


In this study, clinical concordance between results of the T-SPOT.TB assay, using cells stored for 0-8 hours post venepuncture and isolated via density gradient separation and positive selection with magnetic bead isolation using the T-Cell SelectTM Kit will be assessed. Concordance between results of the T-SPOT.TB assay at 0-8 hours post venepuncture and using cells isolated with density gradient centrifugation and results obtained from cells isolated using the T-Cell Select Kit, following storage between 0-55 hours post venepuncture, will be assessed.

Rapid Diagnosis of Tuberculosis Meningitis by Detecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis Cell-Free DNA in Cerebrospinal Fluid.

Tuberculosis meningitis (TBM) is one of the most severe forms of tuberculosis. However, TBM diagnosis is quite challenging due to nonspecific clinical presentation and the paucity of the pathogen in c...

Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA in living donor transplanted livers and donor-related tuberculosis in recipients: A retrospective longitudinal cohort study.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis DNA has been detected in multiple organs in people without active tuberculosis or a history of tuberculosis. Molecular testing for metabolic activity has suggested that M. t...

Urogenital tuberculosis is still a frequent presentation, and it constitutes a current public health problem in endemic areas. The clinical presentation of this form of the disease may be misleading. ...

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.

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.

Tuberculosis of the mouth, tongue, and salivary glands.
