AFB/TB Susceptibility Isoniazid (Rapid- MGIT) Test in Hyderabad

The AFB/TB Susceptibility: Isoniazid (INH) (Rapid- MGIT) test is an important diagnostic tool that helps determine the sensitivity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis (TB), to Isoniazid, a key drug in TB treatment. By identifying the susceptibility profile of the TB bacterium, this test allows healthcare providers to design an optimal and effective treatment plan.

This test detects the presence of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (M.TB) in a patient's sample and checks its susceptibility to Isoniazid. It uses the MGIT (Mycobacteria Growth Indicator Tube) method, which provides quicker results compared to traditional culture methods.

Tuberculosis remains a significant global health challenge. With the emergence of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB), effectively managing and treating TB has become increasingly difficult. Understanding the drug susceptibility pattern of the TB-causing bacteria is vital for effective treatment and control of the disease.
