Abstract:

Mycobacterial tuberculosis (MTB) has recently reemerged as the leading infectious disease in the wobecause of HIV, drug use, homelessness and poverty. Current diagnostics for MTB are slow and laboriotreatment is effective when administered early. Thus, rapid methods for speculation and detection apreliminary evidence that MTB can be diagnosed specifically by immunologic and molecular approaches.has two specific aims 1) combine an immunocapture approach with the company's photoprotein, AquaLiteimmunoassay for MTB and 2) combine an immunologic approach with a molecular approach to develop anthat quantitates PCR products or is sufficiently sensitive for direct quantitation of MTB DNA or RNA
