 The aim of this study was to compare the results of a commercial assay based on the ligase chain reaction [(LCR) LCx Probe System MTB; Abbott, USA] with those of culture in liquid medium (Septi-Chek AFB; Becton-Dickinson, USA) and culture on the egg-based Löwenstein-Jensen solid medium for the direct detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in nonrespiratory specimens. The results were analyzed according to the standard definition of a true-positive result. Two hundred thirty-five… CONTINUE READING
