Interpretation criteria for comparative intradermal tuberculin test
for diagnosis of bovine tuberculosis in cattle in Maroua area of Cameroon.
All tuberculin tests
were conducted by the same person and sputum sample collections and culturing done by laboratory personnel.

In 1930, 60 per cent of young people were sensitive to the tuberculin test
and 85 per cent in 1946.
(A tuberculin test
to check on infection; a chest X-ray to see if there is damage.)
Perhaps significantly, six of the seven with increasing CD4s -- but none of the four with falling CD4s -- show evidence of a specific form of cell-mediated immunity against HIV, as determined by skin tests resembling the commonly performed tuberculin test
. Increasingly, researchers believe that an effective AIDS vaccine will have to induce both antibody-mediated immunity and this cell-mediated immunity.
Main reasons for these gaps are inadequate diagnostic capacity and an over reliance on tuberculin test
, chest radiography and/or sputum smear microscopy as diagnostic tools.
At first, guinea pigs were tested for TB by a subcutaneous tuberculin test
However, the tuberculin test
was strongly positive, and the diagnosis of the ear lesions was cutaneous tuberculosis.
was performed as per procedures adopted by Dacso (1990), and acid fast staining test was performed after (Schaeffer and Fulton 1933).
The skin test is the international standard for the diagnosis of bTB, and accordingly the cervical Single Intra-dermal Tuberculin test
(SIT) is primarily used to screen both individual cattle and herds in continental Europe (1,2,3).
