Evaluation Of Nitrate Reductase Assay For Detection Of Multi-Drug Resistant Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Among Patients


Abstract


Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) remains a major challenge for the control of tuberculosis worldwide. Susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates to first line drugs is therefore necessary to ascertain the diagnosis of MDR-TB. A total of 437 re-treatment patients’ samples were screened for Acid Fast Bacilli (AFB), 72 were smear positive giving a prevalence of 16.47%. Out of 72 smears positive, 62 were culture positive, 6 were culture negative and 4 were contaminant using Lowenstein Jensen medium. Out of 62 cultures positive, 57 were found to be Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) using immunochromatographic test while 5 were negative which were considered to be NTM (Non-Tuberculosis Mycobacteria).

In this study the susceptibility of 57 MTBC isolates to isoniazid (INH), rifampicin (RIF), streptomycin (STR) and Ethambutol (EMB) was determined by Lowenstein Jensen proportion method (LJPM) and Nitrate Reductase Assay (NRA). LJ PM detected 41(71.93%) MDR-TB while NRA detected 44(77.19%) MDR-TB isolates. The occurrence of poly resistance to anti-TB drugs using NRA and LJ PM was 12% and 14% while pan susceptible were of 11% and 14% by LJ PM and NRA respectively. The sensitivities and specificities of NRA compared to those of LJPM were observed to be 98% and 98%, 64% and 68%, 89% and 92%, 80% and 77% for RIF, INH, STR, and EMB respectively.

Positive predictive values were 91%, 93%, 87% and 83% for RIF, INH, STR and EMB respectively. Negative values were 80%, 92%, 67% and 90% for RIF, INH, STR and EMB respectively. Good agreement was found in all the tests with κ values of 0.63, 0.61, 0.59, and 0.61for RIF, INH, STR, and EMB respectively. The HIV/TB co-infections and HIV/MDR-TB co-infections were reported to be 9.7% and 7% respectively. Highest MDR-TB among age groups of 21-30 and 31-40 years were detected by NRA and LJPM and higher MDR-TB and TB were observed in male. The NRA has the potential to be a useful tool for rapid detection of MDR-TB in resource-limited settings because of its higher sensitivity and specificity.

How to defend your research work


This is a general guide on how to defend your research work:

1. Prepare For Questions:

If you are preparing for questions that may be asked during your defense, then your answers will flow smoothly and effectively. This will prove your knowledge on the subject e.g “Evaluation Of Nitrate Reductase Assay For Detection Of Multi-Drug Resistant Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Among Patients“, and strengthening your argument. Ask friends and family, read your work for them to listen to your presentation, and write down questions. You may be lucky the panel will ask you those you have already prepared on.

2. Strong Summary:

Summarizing your chapters will help keep your audience focused because it is easy for a mind to drift, so providing summaries will ensure your panel will follow along, even if they lose focus for a brief moment. Visual aides, such as graphs and power-point presentations can be very helpful. If you are going to use these, make sure you will practice your presentation with them.

3. Be Confident in Your Research Work:

Not knowing your topic “Evaluation Of Nitrate Reductase Assay For Detection Of Multi-Drug Resistant Mycobacterium Tuberculosis Among Patients” inside out will cause you to struggle and ultimately fail with your defense. You need to know the subject from every angle to ensure you are fully prepared for any question that may come your way.

4. Conclusion:

Reinforce your findings to conclude your defense. The finale of your presentation should focus on proving the work that has been done. You may need to recap on what has changed and remained unchanged, if is necessary.

5 . Listen:

Before you get defensive or recite a particular answer, make sure you truly understand the question being asked. Being a good listener is an important quality, because providing an inaccurate or off-topic answer will also weaken the validity of your paper.
