Abstract

We thank K. Shah and Z. Udwadia for their comment on the joint systematic review and meta-analysis of the role of interferon-γ release assays (IGRAs) for the diagnosis of active tuberculosis (TB) by the Tuberculosis Network European Trials Group (TBNET) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. It was demonstrated that immunodiagnosis by tuberculin skin testing and conventional IGRAs performed on cells from the peripheral blood, i.e. the QuantiFERON®-TB Gold In-Tube (Cellestis, Carnegie, Victoria, Australia) and the T-SPOT®.
