LAM distinguishes bovine tuberculosis positive and negative controls and exposed animals. The true negative rate and true positive rate using LAM as a biomarker were plotted against each other. The optimal cutoff value for A) bTB positive versus bTB exposed corresponded to O.D.450nm of 0.7901 (100% sensitivity and 91.7% specificity) and B) bTB exposed versus negative controls corresponded to O.D.450nm of 0.0055 (100% sensitivity and 93.9% specificity). Sensitivity = blue line and Specificity = yellow line.
