CSIRO and CSL have announced a test for human TB in primates. It's the
latest in a series of gamma interferon-based tests for TB that was first
developed for the Australian cattle industry (for M. bovis in cattle and
other bovines), then for tuberculosis in humans.

Their press release and information sheet are on CSIRO Animal Health's
