AIM: Evaluate the IS6110-Taqman system performance in sputum samples from patients with pulmonary tuberculosis from health services in northeastern Brazil as a diagnostic laboratory tool for pulmonary tuberculosis. METHODS AND RESULTS: 165 sputum samples from respiratory symptomatic patients were evaluated in the IS6110-TaqMan assay: 66 patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and 99 without TB. When the IS6110-TaqMan assay was evaluated using culture and/or clinical response to the specific treatment as the gold-standard, IS6110-TaqMan assay obtained a sensitivity of 87.9% and specificity of 98%. The performance IS6110-TaqMan assay was also evaluated with the sputum smear microscopy, resulting in a sensitivity of 79.7% and specificity 94.8%. CONCLUSIONS: The IS6110-TaqMan was rapid, sensitive and specific for the diagnosis of pulmonary TB. © 2012The Authors Journal of Applied Microbiology © 2012 The Society for Applied Microbiology.
