The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Clarithromycin Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure conducted to evaluate the susceptibility of mycobacteria, the bacteria responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic clarithromycin. This test is particularly important in cases of drug-resistant TB, where determining the effective antibiotic regimen is crucial for successful treatment. By cultivating the acid-fast bacilli (AFB) from a patient’s sample, the test measures the growth response of the bacteria to clarithromycin, thereby helping in tailoring the most effective antitubercular therapy for the patient.

This test is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading diagnostic facility known for its advanced testing methodologies and accurate results. The cost of the test is 740 AED, which reflects the specialized nature of the procedure and the sophisticated equipment used. By offering this test, DNA Labs UAE plays a critical role in the management and control of tuberculosis, especially in cases where conventional treatments may not be effective due to drug resistance.

Pre Test Information: No special preparation required

Test Details:

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST (Drug Susceptibility Testing) Clarithromycin test is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacteria that causes tuberculosis) to the antibiotic clarithromycin.

This test is performed on a culture of the bacteria, which is grown in the laboratory from a patient’s sputum or other clinical specimen. The bacteria are then exposed to different concentrations of clarithromycin to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), which is the lowest concentration of the drug that prevents the growth of the bacteria.

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Clarithromycin test is important because it helps guide the choice of antibiotics for the treatment of tuberculosis. If the bacteria are found to be susceptible to clarithromycin, it can be included in the treatment regimen. However, if the bacteria are resistant to clarithromycin, alternative antibiotics must be used.

Drug resistance in tuberculosis is a significant problem, and DST is an essential tool in managing the disease. It helps to ensure that patients receive the most effective treatment and helps to prevent the spread of drug-resistant strains of the bacteria.
