TB drug resistance in a low endemic area 2004 to 2006: semi-quantitative drug susceptibility testing and genotyping


Springer, B; Calligaris-Maibach, R C; Ritter, C; Böttger, E C (2008). TB drug resistance in a low endemic area 2004 to 2006: semi-quantitative drug susceptibility testing and genotyping. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 46(12):4064-4067.

Abstract

We determined quantitative levels and genetic mechanisms of resistance in drug resistant clinical isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis sampled over a period of three years (n = 45, 17 of which MDR). Our results lead us to hypothesize that some strains categorized by standard laboratory procedures of in vitro drug susceptibility testing as resistant to isoniazid, ethambutol or streptomycin may still respond to a treatment regimen including these agents.
