Comparison of an in vitro tuberculosis interferon-gamma assay with delayed-type hypersensitivity testing for detection of latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis: a pilot study in rheumatoid arthritis.

Recommendations for screening for latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) infection have been proposed but are not well studied in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We estimated the prevalence of anergy in RA and evaluated different methods to detect MTB exposure. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of rheumatology Pubmed
