Tuberculin, also known as purified protein derivative, is a combination of proteins that are used in the diagnosis of tuberculosis.

This use is referred to as the tuberculin skin test and is recommended only for those at high risk. Injection is done into the skin. After 48 to 72 hours if there is more than a five to ten millimeter area of swelling the test is considered status: Tuberculin in diagnosis and treatment book ℞-only.

The use of tuberculin in diagnosis and treatment has re ceived wide attention during the past ten years. New methods of application in diagnosis have stimulated a keen interest to deter mine their value, and recent changes in attitude toward important questions bearing upon immunity have provoked extensive re searches, undertaken to make clear Author: Louis Hamman.

The book deals first with the theoretical considerations affecting the action of tuberculin. The multiplicity of views as to the action of tuberculin and the uncertainty of many of the results of observation and experiment by which such views must be tested render a clear account of these matters extremely difficult.

There has been a recent global resurgence of tuberculosis in both resource—limited and some resource—rich countries.

Several factors have contributed to this resurgence, including HIV infection, overcrowding, and immigration. Childhood tuberculosis represents a sentinel event in the community suggesting recent transmission from an infectious by: Prompt diagnosis, and consequently treatment, may be more important than waiting until an early morning sample has been obtained, especially in people with more severe disease.

However, in people who are relatively “well”, waiting to get good an optimal sample (that is, an early morning sample) is appropriate. Treatment of miliary TB should be started at the earliest as per the standard WHO guidelines.

Tubersol, Tuberculin Purified Protein Derivative (Mantoux), is indicated to aid diagnosis of tuberculosis infection (TB) in persons at increased risk of developing active disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have published guidelines regarding populations that would benefit from tuberculin skin testing (TST).

The Mantoux test is a widely used test for latent TB. It involves injecting a small amount of a substance called PPD tuberculin into the skin of your forearm.

It's also called the tuberculin skin test (TST). If you have a latent TB infection, your skin will be sensitive to PPD tuberculin and a small, hard red bump will develop at the site of.
