Many people exposed to the bacteria that cause Tuberculosis (TB) become infected but only a small number will progress to disease. This proposal will develop new tests that can identify people who are either at high risk or low risk of developing TB. The knowledge gained will allow targeting TB treatment to the right group of infected people and preventing them from developing Tb and spreading the bacteria to others.
