Part IV. Control and Prevention of an Epidemic
What preventive measures would you recommend for those who had a positive TST, but did not have any other sign of disease?
Based on the pathogenicity–the ability of an agent to cause disease after infection, measured as the proportion of persons infected by an agent who then experience clinical disease–8 of TB, do you recommend future TSTs and studies?
Part V. Conclusion
Ten weeks after the initial tuberculin testing, 86 of the 11 a.m. nonreactor choir members were retested. Two new reactors (both tenors) were found and given treatment for latent TB infection. No additional cases were found. It should also be noted that the sopranos who sat directly in front of the tenors, separated by the floor air outlet-intake vents, did not have TB, and few sopranos had positive TST results.
