Biomarker test which can predict latent form of TB infection will relaps or not

There are many people who encounter with TB bug but don't develop disease or fetal form of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, this is because of their body's immunity.

There is an important factory a protein interleukin-32 found in such people which impart such immunity from Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection which protect them from developing in to fetal form of lung disease, interleukin-32 is found to be effective in presence of Vitamin D, hence importance of vitamin D, too is established, it could be a reason that patients with vitamin D are more susceptible to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.

A diagnostic test identifying presence or absence of  interleukin-32 in patients with latent form of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection will help in predicting if a patient will develop disease or not.

Moreover bio-synthetic form of  interleukin-32 can be used to treat sever form of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection as in case of relapsed mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.
