INDORE: Health department has called for ban on manufacturing, sale and use of Serodiagnostic test for eradication of tuberculosis. Citing the orders of Union ministry of health and family welfare, district TB officer has put an immediate ban on Serodiagnostic test.
"The test results are dissatisfying and sometimes lead to wrong treatment. The test helps in investigating the level Ig-G TV and Ig-M Tb from blood of the patient. Nearly 40 per cent of the total population of country has germs of TB so serodiagnostic test does not help in knowing the exact presence of the disease," said Dr Vijay Chajjlani, DTO.
