PBD Biotech will be showcasing Actiphage® a blood test that detects ‘active’ disease causing tuberculosis infection at a very early stage. It has applications in latent TB screening and drug management.
The AACC Annual Scientific Meeting is the place to discuss cutting-edge science and technology that is shaping the future of laboratory medicine. New approaches for test and treat of tuberculosis are vital to eradicate this preventable disease.
In addition to improved diagnostics for screening of patients at high risk of TB disease progression, there is also an urgent need for better tests to accurately predict drug treatment success at an earlier stage, minimising the development of drug resistance.
Actiphage meets both these requirements and offers the potential for a ‘test of cure’ companion diagnostic for TB drug treatment by confirming active TB has been eradicated from the bloodstream.
Phage-based diagnostics are discussed in the free-to-view webinar ‘Phage-Based Laboratory Diagnostics Role in the Detection of Tuberculosis’ hosted by the American Association of Clinical Chemistry (AACC)
