We present a short summary of recent observations on the global distribution of the major clades of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, the causative agent of tuberculosis. This global distribution was defined by data-mining of an international spoligotyping database, SpolDB3. This database contains 11708 patterns from as many clinical isolates(More)
The new micromethod for yeast susceptibility testing, MYCOTOTAL, was evaluated with 10 reference strains in seven laboratories. Ready-to-use microtitration plates and the same synthetic medium were used with two dilutions of imidazoles, flucytosine, and amphotericin B, permitting the categorization of each strain as susceptible, intermediate, or resistant.(More)
BACKGROUND Monitoring of primary drug resistance is of interest for long-term evaluation of the efficacy of a national tuberculosis program. The objective was to describe changes over time in primary drug resistance among new tuberculosis patients. METHODS Stratified analysis by birth cohorts, region of birth, HIV-coinfection of data from 14,610(More)
