A proteomic analysis was performed to screen the potential latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) biomarkers. A training set of spectra was used to generate diagnostic models, and a blind testing set was used to determine the accuracy of the models. Candidate peptides were identified using nano-liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization–tandem mass spectrometry. Based on the training set results, three diagnostic models, recognized LTBI subjects with good cross-validation accuracy. In the blind testing set, LTBI subjects could be identified with sensitivities and specificities of 85.20% to 88.90% and 85.7% to 100%, respectively. Additionally, 14 potential LTBI biomarkers were identified and all proteins were identified for the first time through proteomics in the plasma of healthy, latently infected individuals. In all, proteomic pattern analyses can increase the accuracy of LTBI diagnosis, and the data presented here provide novel insights into potential mechanisms involved in LTBI.
Note to users: Accepted manuscripts are Articles in Press that have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication by the Editorial Board of this journal. They have not yet been copy edited and/or formatted in the journal house style, and may not yet have the full ScienceDirect functionality, e.g., supplementary files may still need to be added, links to references may not resolve yet etc. The text could still change before final publication.
Although accepted manuscripts do not have all bibliographic details available yet, they can already be cited using the year of online publication and the DOI, as follows: author(s), article title, journal (year), DOI. Please consult the journal's reference style for the exact appearance of these elements, abbreviation of journal names and use of punctuation.
When the final article is assigned to an issue of the journal, the Article in Press version will be removed and the final version will appear in the associated published issue of the journal. The date the article was first made available online will be carried over.
