The GeneXpert MTB/RIF was chosen as the gold standard or reference for TB diagnosis as recommended by the World Health Organization [13]. GeneXpert MTB/RIF is a molecular test for the detection of TB and rifampicin resistance [14].
There are two kinds of tests used to detect TB bacteria in the body: the TB skin test (TST) and TB blood tests. A positive TB skin test or TB blood test only tells that a person has been infected with TB bacteria. It does not tell whether the person has latent TB infection (LTBI) or has progressed to TB disease.
to be repeated? If you have a negative skin test, you need a repeat test at least once every four years. If you have a documented positive skin test, you must have an initial chest X-ray. After that, you still need to be screened every four years.
Health-care workers who care for patients at increased risk for TB disease. Infants, children and adolescents exposed to adults who are at increased risk for latent tuberculosis infection or TB disease.
Post-Exposure Screening and Testing All health care personnel with a known exposure to TB disease should receive a TB symptom screen and timely testing, if indicated. Health care personnel with a previous negative TB test result should be tested immediately and re-tested 8 to 10 weeks after the last known exposure.

Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infection spread through inhaling tiny droplets from the coughs or sneezes of an infected person. It mainly affects the lungs, but it can affect any part of the body, including the tummy (abdomen), glands, bones and nervous system.
The WHO consolidated guidelines on tuberculosis: tuberculosis preventive treatment provides a comprehensive set of recommendations for programmatic management of tuberculosis preventive treatment (PMTPT) geared towards the implementers of the WHO End TB Strategy and also for countries intent upon TB elimination (9).
In April 2021, WHO convened a guideline development group (GDG) to review data from a trial conducted in 13 countries that compared 4-month rifapentine-based regimens with a standard 6-month regimen in people with drug-susceptible TB (6).
If you have a negative skin test, you need a repeat test at least once every four years. If you have a documented positive skin test, you must have an initial chest X-ray. After that, you still need to be screened every four years.
