Abstract: Background. Clinical accuracy of IGRAs remains unclear on patients with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases (IMIDs). Here, we assess the impact of immunosuppressants and IMIDs on QuantiFERON-TB Gold In-Tube (QFN-G-IT) and T-SPOT. TB accuracy. Methods. Patients with IMIDs who required latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) screening were enrolled and classified into: (i) 50 patients with inflammatory rheumatic diseases, (ii) 50 patients with psoriasis and (iii) 30 patients with Crohn's disease. A total of 44 healthy individuals without immunosuppression were also included as controls. Tuberculin skin test (TST), T-SPOT. TB and QFN-G-IT assays were performed. IGRAs were performed following manufacturer's instructions. Results. Immunosuppressant's intake was more frequent on patients with Crohn's disease and psoriasis. Positive IGRAs and TST results were reduced in Crohn's disease patients, whereas rate of indeterminate T-SPOT. TB results was increased in this group with respect to the other IMIDs analysed and controls. When IFN-γ response was studied, the levels of this cytokine after mitogen stimulation were significantly lower in Crohn's and inflammatoryrheumatic diseases than in psoriasis. Interestingly, psoriatic patients were the only ones not receiving corticosteroids. Furthermore, a negative correlation was observed between the IFN-γ secreted after mitogen stimulation and corticosteroids dose. Conclusions. IMIDs seem to negatively affect the clinical accuracy of IGRAs, being Crohn's disease patients the most affected individuals due to their concomitant drug-profile and impaired immune response.
