Doc igra test whether it can determine the results of pulmonary exsternal tuberculosis (not pulmonary tuberculosis)?

1 Answer:

Hello!
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
The IGRA (Interferon Gamma Release Assays) test is a blood test to assess a person's immunological reaction to Micobacterium tuberculosis. This examination can detect latent tuberculosis in someone who previously suffered from active tuberculosis.
Active tuberculosis is a tuberculosis infection that causes symptoms. While latent tuberculosis is a tuberculosis infection that does not cause symptoms and has a normal chest X-ray picture.
The IGRA test detects a substance called gamma interferon, which is a substance produced by the immune system when exposed to the bacterium Micobacterium tuberculosis. Although it is quite good in detecting TB germs, this examination cannot distinguish whether a person has latent (asymptomatic) tuberculosis infection and active tuberculosis (with symptoms) because both will produce positive results on the presence of germ antigens in the body. This examination also cannot specifically distinguish pulmonary tuberculosis and extrapulmonary (outside lung) infections.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
