Diagnostic performance of genoType® MTBDRplus line probe assay in bronchoalveolar lavage for pulmonary tuberculosis diagnosis in sputum scarce and smear-negative patients.

Farah Idrees, Muhammad Irfan, Kauser Jabeen, Joveria Farooqi, Rumina Hasan,

MTBDRplus line probe assay (LiPA) has been endorsed by the World Health Organization for pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis. However, its value for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) detection in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) needs exploration. This study determined the diagnostic performance of MTBDRplus in BAL for MTB complex detection and isoniazid/rifampicin resistance in ... Read more >>
