Loop-mediated isothermal amplification as alternative to PCR for the diagnosis of extra-pulmonary tuberculosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The main challenge in combatting extra-pulmonary tuberculosis (EPTB) is the lack of a rapid, reliable and inexpensive diagnostic test for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the diagnostic potential of an L-serine dehydratase gene (sdaA) loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay for the detection of M… (More)
