Comparison of normalized total peak areas from the TB patients and healthy individuals. The solid lines indicate the mean nTPA with SD. The dotted line represents the threshold created by the average normalized value of the healthy plus 3 times the standard deviation; TB patients were designated as positive for a peptide if the TPA was above this threshold. Of the 41 peptides screened, four were statistically more abundant in those with active disease (p values detailed in Additional file 6)
