A DNA sequencing technology called next-generation sequencing (NGS) may be used to detect tuberculosis (TB) rapidly and accurately — which could help in distinguishing it from sarcoidosis, a study suggests. While tuberculosis and sarcoidosis share many symptoms, the therapies for the two diseases differ greatly, according to researchers.
