Bacteriophage-Based Blood Test Rapidly Detects TB Bacteria

A blood test based on bacteriophage that infect living Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) bacteria has been shown to diagnose human tuberculosis (TB) and may be able to predict which patients with latent tuberculosis will progress to the active form of the disease. More...
