A faculty member in the College of Science, University of Kirkuk obtained a patent for the preparation (synthesis) of sugary fatty compounds that cause tuberculosis (TB).

The patent reviewed that prepared bio-compounds have a very high selectivity up to 99% in the diagnosis of tuberculosis, especially in people suffering from tuberculosis and the lack of immunity (HIV-AIDS).

The study concluded that the prepared compounds act as antigens that join with other antibodies resulting from TB. And these compounds stimulate the immune cells to produce certain proteins that activate immune cells against the disease.
