A new test to rapidly identify worldwide TB infections

Recently, a group of scientists has teamed up to develop the first rapid blood test to diagnose and quantitate the severity of active TB cases.
The team's newly developed blood-based TB test not only outperforms all others currently on the market but also takes just hours to complete. This test also holds promise for rapid assessment of TB treatment, an important factor in reducing the development and spread of drug-resistant TB strains.
The research team's newly developed NanoDisk-MS assay could significantly improve TB diagnosis and management because it is the first test that can measure the severity of active TB infections. It does so by accurately detecting minute blood levels of two proteins (CFP-10 and ESAT-6) that TB bacteria release only during active infections.
