Abstract: PTB is an airborne communicable disease caused by Mtb. TB disease can be contacted by anyone in an endemic nation like India. Vulnerable and key population in particular is at a higher risk of contacting TB when compared to the general population and it is said that LTBI progresses to Active TB within a mean duration of 1-2 years. Many studies have been carried out to detect LTBI and TB disease prevalence among vulnerable population like prisoners, hostelers, healthcare workers and is also being implemented as a part of the NTEP. It is important to consider the staff of wholesale perishable market complex like Koyambedu market complex in Chennai which is a closed, damp, dark, dusty and overcrowded environment also as key population and they possess a threat of faster TB spread among themselves and also to the community. Not many studies are reported worldwide to detect the prevalence of LTBI in wholesale perishable market complex. Hence, we propose to estimate the prevalence of LTBI and also assess the environmental and occupational risk factors for the progression of LTBI to active TB disease which will serve as a platform for the better understanding about the spectrum of TB disease among population in such a setting and lead to future studies with regards to whether perishable goods can act as a source or carrier of Mtb leading to aerosol generation and thus serving as a hotspot for TB transmission. Those participants who have been identified to be IGRA positive will be referred to NTEP for Active TB disease screening. Participants will be declared as LTBI positive only after ruling out active TB disease which will also help to identify potential individuals for TPT under NTEP. We propose to conduct this study in Koyambedu Market complex in Chennai which is one of Asia’s largest and busiest closed perishable market complex open round the clock with the wholesale market operating between 10 p.m. and 10 a.m. and the retail market operating between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m, receiving about 100,000 visitors and 500 to 600 vehicles every day.
