-11%

The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Clofazimine Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure performed to assess the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic clofazimine. This test is particularly crucial for cases of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), where the bacteria have developed resistance to the primary drugs used in treatment. By culturing the bacteria from a patient’s sample and exposing it to clofazimine, the test determines whether this antibiotic could be effective in treating the infection.

The test is conducted at DNA Labs UAE, a reputable laboratory known for its advanced diagnostic services. The cost of the test is set at 660 AED, reflecting the sophisticated nature of the procedure and the specialized expertise required to accurately determine the drug susceptibility. Results from this test can guide healthcare professionals in designing an effective treatment plan for TB patients, especially in cases where conventional treatment options are limited due to drug resistance.

Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST (Drug Susceptibility Testing) Clofazimine test is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (the bacterium that causes tuberculosis) to the drug clofazimine. Clofazimine is an antimicrobial agent that is used in the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB).

This test helps in identifying whether the strain of M. tuberculosis is susceptible or resistant to clofazimine. The test is performed by culturing the bacteria in the presence of different concentrations of clofazimine. The growth of the bacteria is then observed, and the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of clofazimine required to inhibit the growth is determined. If the MIC is low, it indicates that the bacteria are susceptible to clofazimine, and if the MIC is high, it suggests resistance to the drug.

This test is important in guiding the selection of appropriate drugs for the treatment of tuberculosis, especially in cases of drug-resistant strains. It helps healthcare providers to choose the most effective treatment regimen for individual patients, thus improving the chances of successful treatment outcomes.
