Comparative evaluation of a PCR assay with an in-house ELISA method for diagnosis of Tuberculous meningitis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Despite the availability of many investigational methods, diagnosis of Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is extremely difficult. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR), using specific primers for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), shows variable sensitivity and specificity. In this study, we assessed the usefulness of the PCR assay for TBM diagnosis and… (More)
