Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by bacteria that are spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or the spine.

In most cases, TB is treatable and curable; however, people with TB can die if they do not get proper treatment. Juarez's strain - so-called extremely drug-resistant (XXDR) TB - has never before been seen in the United States, according to Dr. David Ashkin, one of. Extensively drug-resistant TB is resistant to isoniazid and rifampin among first-line drugs, resistant to any fluoroquinolone and at least one second-line injectable drug.

Introduction. It is estimated that multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB; i.e. Mycobacterium tuberculosis resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin) affects people annually with only a fraction of these patients receiving appropriate the poor outcomes of MDR-TB treatment and the need to contain its spread, preventing MDR-TB in contacts Cited by: Drug-resistant TB is spread the same way that drug susceptible TB is spread.

TB is spread through the air from one person to another. The TB bacteria are put into the air when a person with TB disease of the lungs or throat coughs, sneezes, speaks, or sings.

In the beginning of the s there was an outbreak of (multi-drug-resistant) tuberculosis is New York: a team of very dedicated public health officials, doctors and community health workers fought the outbreak by treating patients as much as possible at home and were capable of reversing the situation, be it at very high costs (1 billion Cited by: In there were 9, reported new cases of TB in the United States — or three new cases perpeople.

While this is a percent decrease fromit represents the smallest. Multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is a form of tuberculosis (TB) infection caused by bacteria that are resistant to treatment with at least two of the most powerful first-line anti-TB medications (drugs), isoniazid and forms of TB are also resistant to second-line medications, and are called extensively drug-resistant TB ().Specialty: Infectious disease.

Prevention of multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR/XDR-TB) is a top priority for global TB control, given the need to limit epidemic spread and considering the high cost, toxicity and poor treatment outcomes with available by: In recent years, America has witnessed on its own soil the AIDS epidemic, the presence of drug-resistant tuberculosis in our vulnerable populations, and recent outbreaks of Lyme disease, Hanta virus, and cryptosporidium.

This editorial is based on a conference entitled ‘Multi-drug Resistant Tuberculosis—Molecules to Macroeconomics’, held at the RSM on March Multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDRTB) is defined as resistance to the two principal drugs used in treatment—isoniazid and rifampicin—whether or not there is resistance to other by: Extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR TB) is a relatively rare type of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB).

It is resistant to almost all drugs used to treat TB, including the two best first-line drugs: isoniazid and rifampin. XDR TB is also resistant to the best second-line medications: fluoroquinolones and at least one of three. “Drug-resistant TB is a ‘time bomb,’ a manmade problem that is costly, deadly, debilitating, and the biggest threat to our current TB control strategies,” said Dr.

To the Editor: In the United States, almost 80% of tuberculosis (TB) cases are diagnosed on the basis of positive culture results for Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and >90% of initial isolates are tested for drug susceptibilities (1,2).Recommended treatment durations are 6–9 months for patients with isoniazid- and rifampin-susceptible TB.

Tuberculosis rates have declined in the United States in the last decade. Inthere were aro cases, and of those, only. Tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne infectious disease caused by organisms of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex.
