Abstract

Current tools and strategies for diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) are inadequate, particularly in settings with a high prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Several promising new tools are at advanced stages of development and evaluation. This review describes some of those promising new technologies and the key barriers to their effective implementation.
