ESAT-6 and CFP-10 spot counts in patients with and without tuberculosis. The box plots show the distribution of spot forming cells after stimulation with ESAT-6 (top panel) and CFP-10 (bottom panel). Median spot counts were significantly higher in patients with active TB compared to those without active TB after both ESAT-6 (42 vs. 2, p < 0.001) and CFP-10 stimulation (11 vs. 3, p = 0.03).
