AccuPower® XDR-TB Real-Time PCR Kit is an in vitro diagnostic kit designed for the simultaneous detection of Extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR TB) DNA in human samples such as sputum, bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and Culture specimen through Real-Time PCR.
Extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR TB) is a rare type of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) that is resistant to isoniazid and rifampin, plus any fluoroquinolone and at least one of three injectable second-line drugs (i.e., amikacin, kanamycin, or capreomycin). MDR TB is caused by an organism that is resistant to isoniazid and rifampin, which are two most potent TB drugs. Because XDR TB is resistant to most potent TB drugs, the remaining treatment options are less effective, have more side effects, and are more expensive. XDR TB is a special concern for persons with HIV infection or other conditions that can weaken the immune system. These people are more likely to develop TB once they are infected, and they also have a higher risk of death if they develop TB.
