Resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis has become a serious threat to public health. In order to inhibit spreading and give effective treatment, it is of great importance, as early as possible, to detect drug-resistant bacteria. To evaluate the usefulness of the Line Probe Assay (INNO-LiPA(TM) Rif.TB) for rapid detection of rifampicin resistance, we used 52 clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis from the national strain collection at the Swedish Institute for Infectious Disease Control and the drug… CONTINUE READING
