Differences in IFN-γ between groups were examined using a t-test; adjustment for multiplicity was applied on the resulting p-values from the tests. (group 1: TB+, AFS and culture positive, 2: other pulmonary diseases, no exposure records to TB, 3: health care workers, frequently exposed to M.tb, yet clinically healthy). Only statistically relevant differences are listed.
