Looking at the bacteria inside: New method of viewing TB bacteria

TB is generally a curable disease -- but first it must be diagnosed, and that has been one of the biggest barriers in its elimination. M. tuberculosis grows very slowly, so traditional methods of diagnostic testing take a very long time. A team from the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine has been working on a new approach. Now, researchers have developed a method of detecting whether a potential treatment is working as early as a day after it is given. Since M. tuberculosis takes about a month to quantify using traditional approaches, the new method allows direct determination of the amount of bacteria present is very valuable and speeds progress, saving months every time an experiment is done.
