Molecular Investigation of Resistance to Second-Line Injectable Drugs in Multidrug-Resistant Clinical Isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in France.

The second-line injectable drugs (SLID, i.e., amikacin, kanamycin, capreomycin) are key drugs for the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. Mutations in rrs region 1400, tlyA, and eis promoter are associated with resistance to SLID, to capreomycin, and to kanamycin, respectively. In this study, the sequencing data of SLID resistance-associated… CONTINUE READING
