Cancer antigen (CA) is usually elevated in ovarian cancer. However, there are several reports that serum CA is elevated in tuberculosis. This study investigated the clinical significance of serum CA measurements in patients with active pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). Sensitivity and specificity of a gamma interferon blood test for tuberculosis infection. Int J Tuberc Lung Dis ; Bellete B, Coberly J, Barnes GL, et al. Evaluation of a whole-blood interferon-gamma release assay for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in 2 study populations.
Stress in pulmonary tuberculosis is not now well defined. In the past, the alterations in the formed elements of the blood, changes in the sedimentation rate and a variety of immunological reactions have been investigated especially to determine the pre-surgical status or activity of the tuberculous infection. QFT measures the cell-mediated immune response (cytokines) to very specific TB antigens. The test is performed by collecting whole blood (1 mL) into each of three blood collection tubes. When the blood of an infected patient is stimulated with the M. tuberculosis-specific antigens in QFT, their T-Cells respond by secreting a cytokine called IFN-y.
Because the clinical features of PTB are nonspecific or similar with those of CAP in many cases 5, 6 and the diagnostic sensitivity of a microscopic examination for diagnosing tuberculosis is only about 60%, it is difficult to accurately discriminate PTB from CAP in the early stages of the diagnostic process, particularly when managing patients. A total of patients with newly diagnosed pulmonary tuberculosis were assigned randomly to one of 3 daily rifampin-isoniazid (RIF-INH) regimens: , , or mg of RIF in combination with mg of INH. After an initial 20 weeks of therapy with RIF-INH, patients recieved mg of INH and 15 .

This book contains a critical review of the literature and detailed serial hematologic findings in 1, consecutive cases of pulmonary tuberculosis observed at the State Sanitorium at Rutland, Mass.
The values stressed are the red and white blood cell counts, differential count, hemoglobin content, hematocrit reading and sedimentation rate. This book deals chiefly with the hematologic findings in pulmonary tuberculosis of the reinfection type in different stages of development.
It is based on a comprehensive analytic survey of pertinent literature as well as on a total of 6, complete blood examinations, which included red and white. This book, on the clinical significance of the blood in tuberculosis, is more than a mere description and tabulation of the various hematologic manifestations of the disease.
In fact, it often goes rather far afield in the discussions relating to such features as the sedimentation rate and the various hematologic indexes. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Muller, Gulli Lindh, b. Clinical significance of the blood in tuberculosis.

A health care provider will draw a patient’s blood and send it to a laboratory for analysis and results. Positive TB blood test: This means that the person has been infected with TB bacteria. Additional tests are needed to determine if the person has latent TB infection or TB disease.
Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease usually caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) bacteria. Tuberculosis generally affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body.
Most infections show no symptoms, in which case it is known as latent tuberculosis. About 10% of latent infections progress to active disease which, if left untreated, kills about half of those affected.
