The Oxford Immunotec TB Learning Zone
This site is designed to provide doctors with rapid access to facts about
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB).
Pathophysiology and the immunological detection of latent disease, including
the use of interferon gamma release assays (IGRAs), are highlighted.
The World Health Organisation has emphasized the importance of identifying
and treating latent TB, stating:
“Tuberculosis control and elimination strategies
must aim at diminishing the incidence and prevalence
of latent infection to reduce the pool of those with
tuberculosis infection from which future cases of
tuberculosis will emanate”. Register and Get Started
Effectively completing the training in the Learning
Zone will normally take approximately 90 minutes.
