Decreased Methylenetetrahydrofolate Reductase Activity Leads to Increased Sensitivity to para-Aminosalicylic Acid in Mycobacterium tuberculosis

TLDR
This research is the first to identify an MTHFR in M. tuberculosis and reveals that the activity of this enzyme is associated with susceptibility to antifolates, having particular value for antitubercular drug design for the treatment of drug-resistant TB.

Assessment of Multidrug Resistance Tuberclosis Treatment Outcome in St. Petre’s Tuberclosis Specialized Hospital, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

TLDR
Patients in this cross sectional study were found in good follow up and DOTS program, and the cure rate 7(4.2%) of this study showed that encouraging treatment outcome was obtained from the MDR-TB treatment plan.

EVALUATION OF THE ANALYTICAL PERFORMANCE OF XPERT MTB / RIF ASSAY IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF TUBERCULOSIS AMONG HIV SEROPOSITIVE AND SERONEGATIVE PATIENTS IN ABEOKUTA , SOUTHWESTERN , NIGERIA

TLDR
In HIV seropositive and seronegative in the authors' population with high clinical suspicion of TB, Xpert MTB/RIF performed well for TB diagnosis and rifampicin (RIF) resistance and outperformed smear microscopy.

The synthesis of mycolic acids

The total synthesis of six naturally occuring enantiomerically pure oxygen containing mycolic acids was achieved. The specific mycolic acids synthesized were cis-cyclopropane methoxy-mycolic acid (I)

MULTI DRUG RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS (MDR-TB) - TUBERCULOSIS RESISTANT TO POWERFUL FIRST LINE ANTI TB DRUGS: A REVIEW

TLDR
Management of MDR-TB is a challenge which should be undertaken by experienced clinicians at centres equipped with reliable laboratory service for mycobacterial culture and in vitro sensitivity testing as it requires prolonged use of expensive second-line drugs with a significant potential for toxicity.

Virus de inmunodeficiencia humana y mycobacterium tuberculosis: enemigos aliados

TLDR

The prevalence of tuberculosis and drug resistance among Haitians.

TLDR
This data indicates that tuberculosis is a major health problem among Haitians who have recently entered southern Florida and among those medically screened on arrival, the prevalence of tuberculosis was 650 cas...

Clearing the air. The theory and application of ultraviolet air disinfection.

TLDR
Of the many infectious organisms that are susceptible to UV, most attention has been focused on measles and tuberculosis because of their importance as airborne infections and because each has characteristics favorable for epidemiologic study.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission in a health clinic.

TLDR
A case-control study showed that people whose skin test converted were more likely to have been present while patients were being treated with aerosolized pentamidine and to have worked on the first floor of the clinic.

Tuberculosis, atypical mycobacteriosis, and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome among Haitian and non-Haitian patients in south Florida.

TLDR
Tuberculosis preceded the syndrome by 1 to 17 months (mean, 6) in 22 patients, and in 10 patients with the syndrome and positive sputum cultures who were treated with conventional antituberculosis drugs, the cultures became negative within 1 to 4 months and tuberculosis did not recur.

A prospective study of the risk of tuberculosis among intravenous drug users with human immunodeficiency virus infection.

TLDR
The data suggest that in HIV-infected persons tuberculosis most often results from the reactivation of latent tuberculous infection; these results lend support to recommendations for the aggressive use of chemoprophylaxis against tuberculosis in patients with HIV infection and a positive PPD test.

Racial differences in susceptibility to infection by Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

TLDR
It is concluded that blacks are more readily infected by M. tuberculosis than are whites, and data from three outbreaks of tuberculosis in two prisons showed that blacks have about twice the relative risk of whites of becoming infected with M.culosis.
