Genetic characterization of multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium bovis strains from a hospital outbreak involving human immunodeficiency virus-positive patients.

Abstract

Nineteen multidrug-resistant (MDR) Mycobacterium complex strains isolated in a nosocomial outbreak were characterized at the molecular level. The strains were microbiologically characterized as Mycobacterium bovis. The mpt40 sequence was not present in chromosomal DNA from these strains, supporting the fact that they were M. bovis. All of the isolates were… (More)
