The role of interferon-gamma release assays in predicting the emergence of active tuberculosis in the setting of biological treatment: a case report and review of the literature


Conversions and reversions of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) release assays (IGRAs) were observed when these tests were repeated over time in the same individuals, including those treated with biological agents. In most studies, the variability of IFN-γ plasma levels was not paralleled by clinical change, but a few exceptions exist, in which IGRA conversion… (More)
