CBNAAT strengthens battle against TB in India

Bhubaneswar, Feb 23 (UNI) The use of Cartridge-based Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (CBNAAT) machines have greatly strengthened the battle against tuberculosis (TB) in India.
“CBNAAT has come as a boon for treatment of tuberculosis ” Dr Paresh Mohanty, Senior Consultant Microbiologist, Integrated Reference Laboratory (IRL) at the SCB Medical College and Hospital at Cuttack, said on Tuesday.
While the World Health Organisation (WHO) had fixed a target to eradicate TB from the face of the earth by 2030, the central government was taking steps to wipe out the disease from the country five years earlier, Dr Mohanty said while speaking at a Continuing Medical Education (CME) program organised at the Institute of Medical Sciences and SUM Hospital here.
