Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Develop TB Blood Bank [ Time Frame: Long-Term ]
    To develop a bank of blood samples (serum, plasma, buffy coat DNA) and urine from patients infected with TB. This blood and urine will be used for future molecular genetics studies. Demographic data will be collected and samples will be stored by number. The banked specimens will be evaluated in an attempt to identify susceptibility genes in TB disease. Specifically, expression of the human Bcg gene that codes for resistance to M. tuberculosis will be evaluated and its expression correlated expression with gender, race, clinical TB characteristics. Each patient will have a unique identifier and therefore data generated from this analysis will not be linkable to the patient.
