Other Nasba And Tma Applications

CMV mRNA: Although it is not the most sensitive tool available, NucliSens CMV pp67 test (bioMerieux) specifically detects only the clinically relevant stages of infection, and was shown to have the best specificity and positive predictive value for disease development.[19]

Recently, quantitative NASBA assays have been described for the detection of IE1 and pp67 mRNA expression in lung transplant recipients, and for the quantitative detection of IE1, pp67, and immune evasion genes US3, US6, and US11 in CMV-infected cells.[20] Greijer et al. concluded that effective antiviral treatment was reflected by a rapid disappearance of pp67 mRNA, confirming the clinical utility of the assay.

The BDProbeTec ET Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex Direct Detection Assay (DTB) (Beckton Dickinson Biosciences, Sparks, MD) was compared with the enhanced M. tuberculosis-amplified Direct Test (AMT-DII) (Gen-Probe Inc.), acid-fast staining and culture, with the combination of culture and clinical diagnosis as the
