One third of the world's population is estimated to harbour latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI). Around 10% of them have the life time risk of developing active tuberculosis (PTB). Currently there is no gold standard test for identifying LTBI. Therefore identification of specific markers for LTBI will help as to develop a test specific for LTBI. Earlier,(More)
Serodiagnostic potential of four recombinant proteins (38 kDa[Rv0934], MPT64[Rv1980c], Adk[Rv0733], and BfrB[Rv3874]) was evaluated in Healthy control subjects (HCS), Healthy household contacts (HHC), Pulmonary tuberculosis patients (PTB), and Human immuno deficiency virus & Tuberculosis co-infected patients (HIV-TB). All the antigens tested individually(More)
Differentiation of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) from active disease is one of the crucial elements in the control of tuberculosis. Earlier in Indian population which is tuberculosis endemic, we identified that 10 Mycobacterium tuberculosis secreted protein fractions, induced IFN-γ response only in healthy contacts of TB patients (HCs) and not in(More)
BACKGROUND Even though various techniques have been developed for rapid diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB), still there is an immense need for a simple, cost effective, highly sensitive and specific test. Hence, one of the possibilities is identification of Mycobacterium tuberculosis specific antibodies in infected serum by using specific antigens. METHODS We(More)
