  • Comparative evaluation of Xpert MTB/RIF and the new Xpert MTB/RIF ultra
           with respiratory and extra-pulmonary specimens for tuberculosis case
           detection in a low incidence setting

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 15Author(s): Claudio Piersimoni, Giancarlo Gherardi, Natascia Gracciotti, Antonella Pocognoli BackgroundThe Xpert MTB/RIF assay (Xpert) is an automated molecular test for the detection of tuberculosis and rifampin resistance (RIF-R), but it lacks sensitivity in smear-negative samples and some limitations in determination of RIF-R have also been reported. The new Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra (Ultra) was developed to overcome these limitations. We aimed to compare Ultra and Xpert diagnostic accuracy setting culture and drug susceptibility testing as reference standards.MethodsA retrospective analysis was performed on 359 consecutive, respiratory (269) and extrapulmonary (90) specimens collected from 340 patients investigated for TB along a two-year period. Patients presenting at primary health-care centres and hospitals were recruited on the basis of symptoms and abnormal X-ray imaging. One-hundred seventy-four subjects were identified to have active tuberculosis by culture and 2 were MDR.FindingsSensitivities of Ultra and Xpert were 87% and 75% for the 48 individuals with smear-negative and culture-positive respiratory TB (difference of 12%, 95% CI 3 to 21); 95% and 72% for the 40 individuals with smear-negative and culture-positive extrapulmonary disease (22%, 95% CI 10 to 34); and 95% and 86%, respectively, across all 174 individuals with culture-positive samples (8.5%, 95% CI 4.5 to 12.5). Specificities of Ultra and Xpert for tuberculosis case detection were 98% and 100% (–2.0%, 95% CI –4.3 to +0.3). Ultra and Xpert performed equal in detecting RIF-R.InterpretationSensitivity of Ultra was superior to that of Xpert in all categories of clinical samples. However, improved sensitivity was associated with a modest reduction in specificity.
  • Systematic screening for tuberculosis among hospital outpatients in
           Cameroon: The role of screening and testing algorithms to improve case

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 15Author(s): Melissa S. Sander, Sylvain N. Laah, Collins N. Titahong, Christian Lele, Thompson Kinge, Bouke C. de Jong, Jean-Louis F. Abena, Andrew J. Codlin, Jacob Creswell BackgroundBetter screening and testing approaches are needed to improve TB case finding, particularly in health facilities where many people with TB seek care but are not diagnosed using the existing approaches.ObjectiveWe aimed to evaluate the performance of various TB screening and testing approaches among hospital outpatients in a setting with a high prevalence of HIV/TB.MethodsWe screened outpatients at a large hospital in Cameroon using both chest X-ray and a symptom questionnaire including current cough, fever, night sweats and/or weight loss. Participants with a positive screen were tested for TB using smear microscopy, the Xpert MTB/RIF assay, and culture.ResultsAmong 2051 people screened, 1137 (55%) reported one or more TB symptom and 389 (19%) had an abnormal chest X-ray. In total, 1255 people (61%) had a positive screen and 31 of those screened (1.5%) had bacteriologically confirmed TB. To detect TB, screening with cough>2 weeks had a sensitivity of 61% (95% CI, 44–78%). Screening for a combination of cough>2 -weeks and/or abnormal chest X-ray had a sensitivity of 81% (95% CI, 67–95%) and specificity of 71% (95% CI, 69–73%), while screening for a combination of cough>2 weeks or any of 2 or more symptoms had a similar performance. Smear microscopy and Xpert MTB/RIF detected 32% (10/31) and 55% (17/31), respectively, of people who had bacteriologically-confirmed TB.ConclusionsScreening hospital outpatients for cough>2 weeks or for at least 2 of current cough, fever, night sweats or weight loss is a feasible strategy that had a high relative yield to detect bacteriologically-confirmed TB in this population. Clinical diagnosis of TB is still an important need, even where Xpert MTB/RIF testing is available.
  • Thromboses in tuberculosis are linked to antiphosphatidylethanolamine
           antibodies levels: A cross-sectional study

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 15Author(s): Simon Bessis, Daniel Bertin, Matthieu Million, Line Meddeb, Michel Drancourt, Jean-Christophe Lagier, Jean-Louis Mège, Nathalie Bardin, Philippe Brouqui Venous thromboses have been associated with tuberculosis, but the relationship with circulating anticoagulant has not been studied yet. In a cohort of 48 patients with tuberculosis, 22.9% of them presented with venous thromboses significantly associated with dose dependent level of antiphosphophatidyl-ethanolamine antibodies.
  • Quality of life and its effective factors in tuberculosis patients
           receiving directly observed treatment short-course (DOTS)

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 15Author(s): Shahriar Salehitali, Kobra Noorian, Masoud Hafizi, Ali Hassanpour Dehkordi BackgroundQuality of life in patients affected with chronic diseases has developed into a therapeutic objective as the best tool to evaluate response to treatment and medical care. The purpose of this study was to evaluate quality of life and its related factors in tuberculosis patients receiving directly observed treatment short-course in Iran.MethodsThis was a cross-sectional research with a descriptive-analytic design. Sample size included 71 patients affected with tuberculosis based on census method; so that, at the time of the study, all the tuberculosis patients were recruited in this research. The data collection instrument was a questionnaire comprised of two parts including demographic characteristics information and standard 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36). The data were also analyzed using SPSS Statistics along with descriptive and analytic statistics and independent t-tests, analysis of variance (ANOVA), and Chi-square test.ResultsThe lowest mean score was 63.58 ± 10.16 and 62.82 ± 15.2 related to limited physical activity following mental problems and social functioning, respectively. Furthermore, the findings of the independent t-test demonstrated that the mean scores of quality of life among men and women, those with pulmonic and non-pulmonic tuberculosis, patient's place of residence and the stage of treatment were statistically and significantly different.ConclusionAccording to the above results, tuberculosis and its treatment have impact on the social function, mental, and emotional aspects of the quality of life of patients, Attention to and monitoring of the quality of life as a follow up of the treatment and care intervention in these patients is necessary.
  • Abnormalities suggestive of latent tuberculosis infection on chest
           radiography; how specific are they'

    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 15Author(s): Jonathan W. Uzorka, Lucia J.M. Kroft, Jaap A. Bakker, Erik W. van Zwet, Erik Huisman, Corine Prins, Cornelis J. van der Zwan, Tom H.M. Ottenhoff, Sandra M. Arend BackgroundSeveral radiological features have been reported in association with latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) but it has not been studied which are specific. The aim of this study was to evaluate allegedly characteristic abnormalities on chest radiography (CXR) in patients with LTBI compared to uninfected controls.MethodsFrom 236 patients tested with QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-Tube (QFT), the CXR was re-evaluated in a blinded fashion for fibrotic scarring, (non-)calcified nodules and pleural thickening. LTBI was defined as presence of a positive QFT result and/or positive tuberculin skin test result stratified by Bacille Calmette-Guérin-vaccination status.ResultsAny predefined abnormality of LTBI was observed in 116/236 (49.2%) patients, the frequency not being different between groups. However, the specificity for LTBI of a fibrotic scar ≥ 2 cm2 was 100% [95% CI: 92.0%–100%] and of a calcified nodule ≥1.5 mm was 95.7% [95% CI: 85.2%–99.5%]. The frequency of non-calcified nodules and pleural thickening did not differ between groups.ConclusionOnly a fibrotic scar ≥ 2 cm2 and/or a calcified nodule ≥1.5 mm were significantly associated with LTBI. This finding is clinically relevant mainly in patients who are at significant risk of TB reactivation and in whom indirect diagnostic tests may be unreliable.
  • Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra: Optimal procedures for the detection of Mycobacterium
           tuberculosis in cerebrospinal fluid

    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 14Author(s): Jerome H. Chin, Willy Ssengooba, Scott Grossman, Jacob Pellinen, Vincent Wadda Tuberculosis is the leading infectious cause of death globally and extra-pulmonary disease occurs in 15% of incident cases annually. Tuberculous meningitis (TBM) is arguably the most lethal form of tuberculosis and requires prompt diagnosis and initiation of treatment to prevent death and serious neurological disability. The development of rapid diagnostic tests using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), including the World Health Organization (WHO) – endorsed Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra assay, has allowed earlier definite diagnosis of TBM than conventional culture methods which usually take two weeks or longer for positive identification of MTB. Detection of MTB in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using PCR assays requires special attention to the collection, handling, and processing of CSF. Herein we present best practices guidance to maximize the detection rate of MTB in CSF using Xpert MTB/RIF Ultra.

  • The performance and yield of tuberculosis testing algorithms using
           microscopy, chest x-ray, and Xpert MTB/RIF

    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Journal of Clinical Tuberculosis and Other Mycobacterial Diseases, Volume 14Author(s): Jacob Creswell, Zhi Zhen Qin, Rajendra Gurung, Bikash Lamichhane, Deepak Kumar Yadav, Mohan Kumar Prasai, Nirmala Bista, Lal Mani Adhikari, Bishwa Rai, Santat Sudrungrot SettingThe introduction of Xpert MTB/RIF (Xpert) and renewed interest in chest x-ray (CXR) for tuberculosis testing has provided additional choices to the smear-based diagnostic algorithms used by TB programs previously. More programmatic data is needed to better understand the implications of possible approaches.ObjectiveWe sought to evaluate how different testing algorithms using microscopy, Xpert and CXR impacted the number of people detected with TB in a district hospital in Nepal.DesignConsecutively recruited patients with TB-related symptoms were offered smear microscopy, CXR and Xpert. We tested six hypothetical algorithms and compared yield, bacteriologically positive (Bac+) cases missed, and tests conducted.ResultsAmong 929 patients, Bac+ prevalence was 17.3% (n = 161). Smear microscopy detected 121 (75.2% of Bac+). Depending on the radiologists’ interpretation of CXR, Xpert testing could be reduced by (31%–60%). Smear microscopy reduced Xpert cartridge need slightly, but increased the overall diagnostic tests performed.ConclusionXpert detected a large proportion of Bac+ TB cases missed by microscopy. CXR was useful in greatly reducing the number of diagnostic tests needed even among presumptive TB patients. Loose CXR readings should be used to identify more people for TB testing. More analysis of costs and standardized CXR reading should be considered.
