they may also produce false positives when antibody levels remain elevated after cases of TB have been treated Despite these shortcomings manufacturers make claims of very high accuracy Weyer says citing one drug package insert that says the test is 100% accurate although the study included only 10 subjects She also mentioned reports of doctors receiving economic incentives from the tests’ manufacturers Since December 2010 WHO has endorsed the Xpert MTB/RIF test a new molecular diagnostic manufactured by Cepheid a company based in Sunnyvale California The test runs on the GeneXpert system which uses real-time polymerase chain reaction to rapidly detect MTB and rifampicin resistance identifying patients infected with drug-resistant strains "The advantage of GeneXpert is that you can immediately diagnose TB and [determine] whether that TB is drug resistant" Weyer says It provides results in 2 hours compared with the weeks required to complete a traditional TB culture diagnosis Unlike microscopy the coffee machine-sized instrument doesn’t require a laboratory or trained personnel she says The downside is that it costs $20000 expensive compared with the $1000 needed to purchase a microscope although the costs of individual tests are similar GeneXpert also requires a constant and uninterrupted flow of electricity lacking in many developing nations although Weyer says studies are under way to attempt to power the machines with batteries and solar energy Several studies published in PLoS Medicine this week conclude that the MTB/RIF test is very effective at diagnosing TB in HIV-positive patients which is particularly difficult because they often have smear-negative results because their TB is disseminated or extrapulmonary One study found a 45 % increase in case detection for HIV-infected patients using Xpert MTB/RIF assay compared with smear microscopy Last week ina paper in The Lancet researchers reported that GeneXpert is also effective for diagnosing TB in children another population at high risk of dying from TB="#article_upsell"> WHO is still hoping for a "point of care" diagnosis that will deliver results at patients’ bedsides but for now Weyer says "there is a lot of basic science still missing from the picture"
