Tuberculosis Testing for NTM Patients

Trial Objective

Tuberculosis Testing for NTM PatientsThe purpose of this study is to determine if a new blood test known as the VIDAS Interferon Gamma Release Assay (VIDAS TB-IGRA) is effective at diagnosing tuberculosis (TB) in people with nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). The study will evaluate whether nontuberculous mycobacteria interfere with the positive Mycobacterium tuberculosis diagnosis. Researchers are comparing VIDAS TB-IGRA with other diagnostic tests known to accurately detect latent tuberculosis in NTM patients. It is important to rule out a TB infection when treating NTM.
