Deep amplicon sequencing for culture-free prediction of susceptibility or resistance to 13 anti-tuberculous drugs.

Source: Eur Respir J (2020) Abstract: Conventional molecular tests for detecting complex (MTBC) drug resistance on clinical samples cover a limited set of mutations. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) typically ...

RNA-based drug susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

the knowledge on resistance mutations which is limited for especially 2nd-line and new drugs, (b) do not distinguish living from death cells, (c) ignore all intrinsic resistance mechanisms like efflux ...

Comparative genomics of quinolone-resistant and susceptible Campylobacter jejuni of poultry origin from major poultry producing European countries (GENCAMP)

pattern and antimicrobial use in livestock were not significantly associated with allele frequency or populations of C. jejuni, but data available to investigate these associations were limited. Health ...

What can the CF registry tell us about rare CFTR-mutations? A Belgian study.

Abstract: BACKGROUND: CFTR2 provides clinical and functional information of the most common CFTR-mutations. Rare mutations (RM s) occur in only a few patients with limited reported clinical data. Their role ...
