The frequency of resistance genotypes among Beijing and non-Beijing strains was compared using a reverse blot hybridization assay to detect mutations within genes associated with rifampicin (rpoB) and isoniazid (katG, inhA, and ahpC) resistance. Of the 743 Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates, 569 (77%) belonged to Beijing family. The proportion of Beijing strains was significantly higher among MDR-TB isolates than among drug-susceptible strains (82% vs. 72%, p<0.01). Genotype analysis of the… CONTINUE READING
