Interferon Gamma Release Assays in Patients with Respiratory Isolates of Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria – a Preliminary Study

). The superiority of IGRAs over tuberculin skin test (TST) in LTBI diagnostic pathway, is related to its higher specificity, e.g. lack of false positive results in the populations vaccinated against M. tuberculosis and those infected with most of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) (Demkow 2011; Kuś et al. 2011; Mancuso et al. 2012). Nevertheless, some NTM, such as Mycobacterium kansasii, Mycobacterium marinum and Mycobacterium szulgai share RD1 with M. tuberculosis and could induce false positive

BACTERIAL METALLOTHIONEINS

, able to chelate multiple metal ions i.e. the metallothioneins (MTs). They are widely distributed among Eucaryota, however, they have also been found in some limited Procaryota, including cyanobacteria, pseudomonads and mycobacteria. These bacterial MTs differ in terms of primary structure, the number and type of metal ions they bind, as well as with regard to their physiological functions. The expression of bacterial MTs is regulated by metals via metalosensors. MTs from cyanobacteria seem to be

Drug Susceptibility of Non-tuberculous Strains of Mycobacterium Isolated from Birds from Poland

Abstract Mycobacterioses are a constant problem in backyard poultry, as well as pet birds. To date, no evidence of direct transmission of atypical bacilli between humans has been demonstrated, but it cannot be ruled out that sick animals can be a source of infection for people in their environment. The aim of the study was to identify mycobacteria isolated from birds with diagnosed mycobacteriosis and to determine the susceptibility of mycobacterial isolates from these animals to

A Current Microbiological Picture of Mycobacterium Isolates from Istanbul, Turkey

Introduction Tuberculosis (TB), as an infectious disease is caused by Mycobacterium species in humans (Miotto et al. 2018). The etiological agent of the disease is most often Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB), and less commonly other species in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC). Mycobacterium species other than these species are classified as non-tuberculosis mycobacteria (NTMs) (Waters and Ratjen 2016). In recent years, the incidence of diseases caused by NTMs has increased due to
