The first breath test for Tuberculosis in the laboratory has been developed successfully by the researchers. Under the standard method, rapid information on drug resistance takes place duly reported by the US scientist within the journal named nature communications.
Within the period of 10 minutes, the bacteria of TB emit a very unique gas which was duly tested in rabbits. According to the report published worldwide, TB infects around 8.6 million of people every year among which 1.3 million is killed. This disease is ranked second just after HIV.
The world health organization says, TB must be diagnosed early backed with treatment. This is subject to the priority of a global fight against TB.
People affected by TB can be optimally treated with the right type of tablets which is once again really useful.
Presently, the new researchers have found out much more effective technique of getting away from the disease named TB or Tuberculosis. The new research found out the inhaled form of isoniazid.
The associate professor at New Mexico University in US also has tested various facts by monitoring the labeled gases which is used during the process of activation. Also a special labeled isonaid to the laboratory rabbits is diagnosed.
Mass spectrometer is the machine which detects the release of nitrogen gas with TB label duly released from the lungs. According to the result published, TB bugs are present and are really very susceptible to isoniazid.
TB or tuberculosis has been a serious issue few years ago. With the poor medical facilities most of the people suffered from the effect of tuberculosis. But today, the medical science has received a proper development stage with a revolutionary move. Yes, the breathing test has developed which can diagnose the problem and help treating the disease in a proper way. The breathing analysis or breathing test have no side effect to cause serious issues. Thus, you can easily avail the process for detecting TB. There was a time when TB has been an epidemic but this can be sorted with breathing test.
Options of treatments
Being a disease which is really very difficult to be treated, people can avail treatment with multiple drugs within the period of six months. In many cases failure of the treatment was found with the rise in TB which is resistant to multi drug.
For years, diagnosis of TB was dependent on for the growth of bacteria over the period of time with culture and growth in sputum of the patient. If the result is being tried to get extracted by the help of culture, the time taken will be within 1 month to six weeks.
The world health organization has spoken about the new DNA detection technique named as GeneXpert. A sample is taken from the patient that is analyzed and found out whether the sample of the patient contains TB patient. There is one of the key drugs named as rifampicin within the period of three hours. However, the patient needs to wait for a long time for the information about full drug resistance.
According to Dr Timmins, optimally treating procedure of an individual who has been suffering from TB with the right tablets will be actually useful.
The new revolutionary attempt was made by the breath test that samples the whole lung with greater sensitivity which gives instant result.
As per the statement of Dr Ruth McNerney who is one of the senior lecturer in London school of Tropical medicine and hygiene getting the breath test for TB patient is a very clever idea.
Even the diagnosis of MDR-TB would become much more certain with the test. Pursuing the test will be really worth.
Since the breath test is just in its preliminary stage, it can only be in a state of detecting the ionized sensitivity. Thus, initially it should be used with the combination of other tests.
Dr Timmins also add that, breath test is just the start for the program. In the next level test will be performed in clinical settings with its impact on human. Once you put the theory into the practical application, variety of good ideas are likely to fail. But, researchers are working really hard to get successful result for TB affected patients.
Advance technique with breath analyzer
The breath analyzer will provide effectiveness of result in the field of tuberculosis. The technological advancement comes with full portability and also the instant result. The machinery is also very easy to be used. Even the non medical personnel can use the same. You can also keep such an analyzer at your home o check whether any of your family members or friends has trouble of tuberculosis. This can be effective with biochemistry result. After getting the result from the machinery, it will be easier to find out suitable treatment process for the TB treatment.
Working of TB analyzer
The breathing test is associated with the integrated system. The sample collection is made for single use. The sample also gets nebulised with the help of the saline solution which has 0.99% of salinity. The patient diagnosed with the tuberculosis is made to cough in the tube. The glass bottom of the tube is associated with the bio sensor coat which is also known as the bio chemical coating solution. The chemical coating in the tube will react with TB bacilli so formed in the sample. The aerosol sample is then seals with the activity of simple twist and push. This is then deposited on the bio sample. The process has great advantage to get rapid response. Since the machine has really high sensitivity and specificity, the infectious TB spreading microorganisms will be caught red handed. The physician also gets good scope to treat patient after test by breathing analyzer.
