Background: Emergence of drug-resistant tuberculosis complicated the Tuberculosis Control programs seriously. Rifampin is a marker forMDR-TB therefore, characterizing and designing suitable target for rapid and simple molecular detection of resistance against rifampin is an urgent need. Method: Based on proportional method, fifteen rifampin-resistant isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were identified in northeast of Iranduring July 2012 to May 2013. Phenotypic characterization and genotypic… CONTINUE READING
