Abstract

Traditional testing methods have limited epidemiologic studies of tuberculosis among free-living primates. PCR amplifcation of insertion element IS6110 of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from fecal samples was evaluated as a noninvasive screening test for tuberculosis in primates. Active tuberculosis was detected among inoculated macaques and naturally exposed chimpanzees, demonstrating the utility of this test.
