Role of Cartridge based nucleic acid amplification test (CBNAAT) in new sputum negative pulmonary tuberculosis

The role of newly introduced cartridge based nucleic acid amplification test (CBNAAT) in the revised national TB control program (RNTCP) is highly promising with a higher yield of bacteriological diagnosis in sputum negative pulmonary tuberculosis patients with detection of rifampicin resistance within 2 hours only.

Treatment outcomes of adults with new onset pulmonary tuberculosis in Pretoria, South Africa

A retrospective cohort study to evaluate treatment outcomes and associated factors among new TB patients taking standard regimen 1 TB treatment during 2010 in Pretoria suggests non-compliance with standard TB guidelines by healthcare workers is suggested.

Improving diagnosis of childhood tuberculosis in a high TB-HIV prevalent setting

XpertMTB/RIF on stool gave promising results for the use in children unable to provide sputum and could be an interesting alternative to more complex methods such asSputum induction and gastric aspirate for primary health care centers of limited resource countries.

International Journal of Medical and Biomedical Studies (IJMBS)

Squamous cell carcinoma of oesophagus was found to be the most common cause of dysphagia which can be due to rising incidence of gastro Esophageal reflux disease or Barret’s esophageous, hence role of endoscopy is much valuable in detecting these premalignant conditions to prevent this manifestation.

The importance of multiple samples in mycobacterial recovery: A 10-year retrospective study

It is suggested that only two samples are required for the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis and an added value of multiple samples in NTM recovery is found.

Indicators for prediction of Mycobacterium tuberculosis positivity detected with bronchoalveolar lavage fluid

This study indicated that combination of age, the presence of pulmonary cavity, and the result of IGRA is useful to predict the positivity of Mtb detection in BALF among sputum-negative and non-sputum producing pulmonary TB suspects.

If the assays function as well during routine use as they have during clinical trials, a clinical laboratory may soon be able to report confirmed M. tuberculosis infection to the physician within hours of receiving a specimen, instead of within the typical period of 2-4 weeks.

Smear microscopy examination of two spontaneous sputum specimens is the most efficient, and three spUTum smear examinations provide a diagnosis in almost all cases.

Screening tuberculosis suspects using two sputum smears.

Screening TB suspects using two sputum smears is as effective as screening using three sputUM smears, and is associated with less laboratory work and savings in costs.

Comparing the sensitivity and specificity of two versus three smears for the diagnosis of pulmonary tuberculosis in a setting with high HIV prevalence shows that collecting two smears rather than three would only marginally reduce sensitivity and would slightly improve the specificity of diagnosis of tuberculosis.

Reducing the number of sputum samples examined and thresholds for positivity: an opportunity to optimise smear microscopy.

Reducing the number of specimens and the positivity threshold to define a positive case increased the sensitivity of microscopy and reduced laboratory workload.

The utility of serial smears can be rationally determined by careful review of program data and the number of slides that have to be examined to identify one additional case or failure.
