SETTING Cetrangolo Hospital, Vicente Lopez, Argentina, 1995-1999. OBJECTIVE To describe a home-made reverse-line blot hybridisation assay for the detection of rifampicin resistance-associated mutations in the rpoB gene of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and to evaluate the usefulness of this rifampicin oligonucleotide, or 'RIFO' assay, to predict rifampicin… CONTINUE READING
