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 for the detection of serum IgG by indirect ELISA. All the four antigens have a significantly higher antibody response in PTB compared to… CONTINUE READING
