Detection of non-tuberculous mycobacteria from sputum samples
NTM infections are an emerging global public health problem, especially in developing world. NTM and MTBC were proven to be responsible for various lungs, soft and skin tissues, and disseminated infections. Microscopy of AFB is rapid; however it does not discriminate between MTBC and NTM. Biochemical tests are time taking and interpretation of results may be difficult. The GenoType® Mycobacterium CM/AS assay is reliable and rapid detection method in species of mycobacteria, which can give patients with the onset of early targeted therapy. In present study, 189 patients detect by sputum sampling from total 3320 patients.
