US tbc testing adopted to medicalQM policy
On December 8th 2016, the American Thoracic Society, Infectious Diseases Society of America and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released updated official guidelines for the Diagnosis of Tuberculosis in Adults and Children > Link.
As published in our book "The Tiny Infectologist" in 2015 and implemented already several years ago in our medical QM, these guidelines now specifically adopt and recommend the use of contemporary diagnostic facilities for the screening and confirmation of Tuberculosis, such as the IGRA-Test (Interferon Gamma Release Assay > Link) and molecular diagnostic methods.
An objective is to diagnose more latent Infections (LTBI, Link) by IGRA-screening (TST only as an alternative where IGRA is not available, too expensive or too burdensome) early on, when prophylactic treatment with e.g. Isoniazid can effectively reduce the risk of progression to symptomatic disease.
The guidelines also recommend against testing individuals at low risk for infection and disease progression (e.g. in institutional settings or obliged by law), for a lack of therapeutic significance, risk of unnecessary treatment of false-positive results and risk of unnecessary additional screening by chest radiograph.
Patients with clinical signs of symptomatic disease should be confirmed by sputum smear microscopy, culture and / or molecular diagnostic testing.
We can only agree to the authors warning given in their news release: "Without the application of improved diagnosis and effective treatment for LTBI, new cases of TB will develop from within this group, which is therefore a major focus for the control and elimination of tuberculosis".
We sincerely hope that in light of international publications like this, medical societies, governmental central scientific institutions and policy makers in Germany will finally follow this lead and also adopt what we publish and teach for several years.

In conversation with...
Today Daniel Bahr was visiting us in Hanover.
With the former Federal Minister of Health and today Chief Representative of APKV we talked about national and international issues of medical care.
Primarily it was about "medical quality management and patient safety" and "expensive and non-effective medical treatments".
