A cluster of multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis among patients arriving in Europe from the Horn of Africa: a molecular epidemiological study.

METHODS: On April 29 and May 30, 2016, the Swiss and German National Mycobacterial Reference Laboratories independently triggered an outbreak investigation after four patients were diagnosed with ...

Meropenem-clavulanate for drug-resistant tuberculosis: a follow-up of relapse-free cases.

long-term follow-up of XDR- TB cases treated with a regimen containing meropenem-clavulanate (M/Clav). DESIGN: Retrospective observational case series study at a single hospital. METHODS: All hospitalised ...

Global transcriptional analyses of Mycobacterium tuberculosis using old and new drugs

using the approach called RNA tag-Seq, multiple samples were combined in one run, reducing time and cost.   Material/methods: For each drug (isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol, capreomycin, amikacin, ...

MALDI-TOF for the identification of Mycobacteria and their drug resistance profiles

desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI- TOF MS) has been increasingly introduced as a valuable method for the identification of bacteria and yeast1. This technique, which generates mass ...

Global transcriptional analyses of Mycobacterium tuberculosis using old and new drugs

multiple samples were combined in one run, reducing time and cost.   Material/methods: For each drug (isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol, capreomycin, amikacin, linezolid, moxifloxacin and bedaquilin), twice ...

WIV-ISP's experiences in the use of MALDI-TOF for the identification of Mycobacteria and their drug resistance profiles

the Brüker Database v3.0. For organisms of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, identifications were 100% correct, while the concordance with standard methods was a bit lower for Nontuberculous ...

RNA-based drug susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

phenotypic Drug Susceptibility Testing (DST). To counter this, new fast and sensitive DNA-based methods were successfully introduced over the last years. However, these (a) are based on the knowledge on ...
