Molecular Evidence for the Aerial Route of Infection of Mycobacterium leprae and the Role of Asymptomatic Carriers in the Persistence of Leprosy.

 O Centro de Referência Nacional em Dermatologia Sanitária e Hanseníase da Universidade Federal de Uberlândia MG, Brasil (CREDESH/ UFU-MG) tem experiência na aplicação da reação em cadeia da polimerase em tempo real (qPCR) para detecção de DNA de M. leprae e da sorologia ELISA

Diagnosis of mycobacterial infections based on acid-fast bacilli test and bacterial growth time and implications on treatment and disease outcome.

Background: The establishment of therapeutic regimens for mycobacteriosis depends on the accurate identificationof Mycobacterium species, and misdiagnosis can result in inappropriate treatment and increased mortality of patients.Differential diagnosis among Mycobacterium species has been made by conventional phenotypic and biochemicaltests after a long culture period. Specialized molecular diagnostics of mycobacteria allows rapid detection and speciesidentification; however, such tests are not available in public health programs.
