First breath test for TB

Tuberculosis (TB) kills 1.3 million people globally every year. But a breakthrough screening process might indicate that TB deaths could go down significantly within the next few years. A new TB screening process, developed by researchers at the University of New Mexico, detects an enzyme that is unique to TB. Scientists say early screenings are key to overcoming a TB infection—the new test takes 10 minutes, where current tests can take up to six weeks.
