QFT-Plus is the most accurate test for TB infection
What if you could see which of your patients were at risk of developing active TB?
TB starts with a latent infection, where the patient displays no symptoms. This inactive carrier state is called latent TB infection (LTBI) and can persist for weeks, months or years before developing into active contagious disease. Symptoms of active TB include chronic cough, fever, unexplained weight loss and, if severe, night sweats and even coughing up blood.
The good news is that TB disease is preventable and curable. If TB infection is recognized early, effective preventive treatment can be provided, significantly reducing the risk of disease, and preventing outbreaks from recent transmission.
QuantiFERON-TB Gold Plus (QFT-Plus) is a more accurate test for TB infection, producing fewer false positive results than the tuberculin skin test. Unlike the tuberculin skin test, QFT-Plus test results are also unaffected by prior BCG-vaccination.
With QFT-Plus, you can shine a light, and see latent TB in your patient population.
