High Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacillary loads detected by tuberculosis molecular bacterial load assay in patient stool : a potential alternative for nonsputum diagnosis and treatment response monitoring of tuberculosis Musisi, Emmanuel; Sessolo, Abdul; Kaswabuli, Sylvia; Zawedde, Josephine; Byanyima, Patrick; Kasiinga, Shariifah; Sanyu, Ingvar; Uwimaana, Esther; Walimbwa, Stanley; Ola, Joseph; Ssengooba, Willy; Sekaggya, Christine; Joloba, Moses L.; Worodria, William; Huang, Laurence; Gillespie, Stephen Henry; Sloan, Derek James; Sabiiti, Wilber (2022-02-23) - Journal articleNot all patients produce sputum, yet most available TB tests use sputum. We investigated the utility of a novel RNA-based quantitative test, the tuberculosis molecular bacterial load assay (TB-MBLA), for the detection and ...
Evaluation of the tuberculosis-molecular bacterial load assay for tuberculosis diagnosis and monitoring response to standard anti-tuberculosis therapy Musisi, Emmanuel (University of St Andrews, 2023-06-16) - ThesisTuberculosis (TB) is a difficult disease to treat, requiring a minimum of six months on a combination of four antibiotics. This thesis reports the first systematic evaluation of the St Andrews' developed RNA-based ...
Kinetics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis-specific IFN-γ responses and sputum bacillary clearance in HIV-infected adults during treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis Mzinza, David T.; Sloan, Derek James; Jambo, Kondwani C.; Shani, Doris; Kamdolozi, Mercy; Wilkinson, Katalin A.; Wilkinson, Robert J.; Davies, Geraint R.; Heyderman, Robert S.; Mwandumba, Henry C. (2015-07-01) - Journal articleIn HIV-uninfected adults with pulmonary tuberculosis (TB), anti-TB treatment is associated with changes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb)-specific immune responses, which correlate with sputum bacillary load. It is unclear ...
