Abstract

Nowadays the diagnosis of tuberculosis disease is still a not completely solved problem and it it necessary to deal with it using different, available, diagnostic methods. Our study shows good sensibility and high specificity of Tb-test, an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method, based on antibodies anti Antigen60 research in serum of prostrated, little collaborating and long stay psychiatric patients, affected with pulmonary tuberculosis. Our data nevertheless obtained from a small group of patients, confirm that antibodies anti A60 research, particularly in this type of patients is an efficient means to begin the antituberculotic therapy.
