Abstract

We compared the response induced by QuantiFERON-TB Gold antigens to that obtained with the Intradermal Comparative Tuberculin Test and BOVIGAM assay. Our results showed that the QuantiFERON-TB Gold technique used in humans could also be applied for the diagnosis of TB infection in cattle.
