Title:
New diagnostic tests for tuberculosis in southern countries: from theory to practice in Southern countries
Authors:
Bonnet, M
Journal:
Revue des Maladies Respiratoires
Abstract:
Tuberculosis (TB) is responsible of 1.7 millions of deaths per year worldwide. In high burden countries sputum smear-microscopy diagnoses only half of the cases of pulmonary TB. It is unlikely that a new test will replace smear-microscopy in peripheral services in the short term.
