Molecular epidemiology of tuberculosis in Prague and South Moravia, Czech Republic: genetic analysis of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates by IS6110-RFLP fingerprinting and spoligotyping.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To genetically characterize and compare Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates among culture-confirmed TB cases in two regions in the Czech Republic in 1998. METHODS Consecutive M. tuberculosis isolates from 111 TB patients in Prague and 120 patients in the South Moravia region were genotyped using the standardized IS6110 Southern blot… (More)
