Tuberculosis (TB) continues to pose a major public health problem globally. In Ghana, the national TB case detection rate is 81 %; however, some districts are not able to meet their case detection targets. This study was therefore carried out in the Nkwanta South district to identify possible factors contributing to low TB case detection. A cross sectional descriptive study involving the. Biosensing technologies promise to improve Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tuberculosis) detection and management in clinical diagnosis, food analysis, bioprocess, and environmental monitoring. A variety of portable, rapid, and sensitive biosensors with immediate “on-the-spot” interpretation have been developed for M. tuberculosis detection based on different biological elements.
Author summary Mycobacterial related EPTB diagnosis remains a challenge. In fact the paucibacillary nature of human specimens realized from inaccessible sites might be one of the causes giving a low sensitivity of routine used diagnostic tests. Therefore the use of Real time PCR (qPCR) contributes to a specific, sensitive and rapid EPTB diagnosis which helps to a successful anti TB treatment. M. tuberculosis. Clinicians should determine if the patient has underlying medical. conditions, especially HIV infection and diabetes, that increase the risk for progression to TB disease in those latently infected with. M. tuberculosis. As discussed in Chapter 2, Transmission and Pathogenesis of . Tuberculosis (TB) due to Mycobacterium bovis is a zoonosis that affects humans around the world [1, 2].Although it has a wide range of hosts, M. bovis primarily infects cattle, which can transmit the agent to humans through the consumption of unpasteurized, contaminated dairy products .Like Mycobacterium tuberculosis, M. bovis can also be transmitted between persons through the inhalation .
Tuberculosis has haunted humanity since its very beginning. The earliest known finding of tuberculosis is from a specimen found in a , year old homo-erectus. In earlier times tuberculosis affected many people, and has recently dwindled in numbers. The literature on studies of antibody-mediated immunity against M. tuberculosis can be divided into several general categories: serological studies, passive antibody studies, animal studies, in vitro studies, and human studies. Monoclonal antibody (MAb) technology, described for the first time in the s, allowed the selection of individual. reliability of rapid M. tuberculosis specific antibody detection tests using banked serum samples from the WHO/TDR TB Specimen Bank • To assess the operational characteristics of rapid M. tuberculosis tests, including ease of use, technical complexity and inter-reader variability.
