The developed latex agglutination test (LAT) was tested for sensitivity, specificity, and predictive value using 26 cerebrospinal fluid samples with confirmed TB meningitis. Test results indicated a 23.8% sensitivity, 92% specificity and a 90.9% predicitive value. Further assessment of the test's validity and reliability is recommended to obtain actual sensitivity and specificity values.
The project will develop a fast method of diagnosing tuberculosis meningitis that has a better sensitivity than acid fast staining and culture method.
