The “Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Isoniazid Test” is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for tuberculosis (TB), to the antibiotic Isoniazid. This test is crucial in the management and treatment of TB, as it helps to identify drug-resistant strains of the bacterium, thereby enabling healthcare providers to tailor the most effective treatment plans for patients. Conducted on cultures of the bacterium isolated from patients, the test determines whether the TB strain is resistant or sensitive to Isoniazid, a key first-line drug in TB treatment.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading diagnostic facility known for its advanced testing capabilities and adherence to international standards, this test is offered at a cost of 660 AED. The facility employs state-of-the-art technology to ensure accurate and reliable results, contributing to the effective management of tuberculosis by identifying resistant strains and preventing the spread of this infectious disease.

CULTURED AFB ANTITUBERCULAR DST ISONIAZID Test

Test Cost: AED 660.0

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Test Details

The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Isoniazid Test is a laboratory test used to determine the susceptibility of the tuberculosis-causing bacteria, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, to the antibiotic drug isoniazid. This test is performed on a culture of the bacteria obtained from a patient’s sputum or other body fluids.

Isoniazid is one of the first-line drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis. However, some strains of M. tuberculosis may develop resistance to isoniazid, making the treatment less effective. The Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Isoniazid Test helps in identifying these resistant strains.

During the test, the M. tuberculosis culture is exposed to different concentrations of isoniazid. The growth of the bacteria is observed over a specified period, typically 14-21 days. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of isoniazid required to inhibit the growth of the bacteria is determined. This MIC value helps in categorizing the strain as susceptible or resistant to isoniazid.

The results of the Cultured AFB Antitubercular DST Isoniazid Test guide the healthcare provider in selecting the appropriate antibiotic regimen for the treatment of tuberculosis. If the strain is susceptible to isoniazid, it can be used as part of the treatment regimen. However, if the strain is resistant, alternative drugs or combinations of drugs need to be considered.

It is important to note that this test specifically looks for resistance to isoniazid and does not provide information about resistance to other antitubercular drugs. Therefore, additional drug susceptibility testing may be required to determine the overall drug resistance profile of the M. tuberculosis strain.
