SETTING Madras, India. OBJECTIVE To explore the utility of a standardized IS6110/PvuII deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) fingerprinting restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) typing method for distinguishing between isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and to assess the potential for distinguishing between relapse versus reinfection rates. DESIGN To assess RFLP heterogeneity in the population, initial isolates, obtained from the sputum of tuberculous 98 patients in diagnosis and… CONTINUE READING
