4 Resistance to rifampicin
has become a useful indicator of possible MDR TB because around 90% rifampicin
resistant cases are also resistant to isoniazid.
Percentage of Rifampicin
Resistance Detected by CBNAAT Drug Resistance No.
Automated real-time nucleic acid amplification technology for rapid and simultaneous detection of tuberculosis and rifampicin
resistance: Xpert MTB/RIF.
6 The process identifies all the clinically relevant rifampicin
resistance inducing mutations in the RNA polymerase beta (rpoB) gene in the mycobacterium tuberculosis genome in a real time format using fluorescent probes called molecular beacons.

can effectively overcome CSCR by inducing catabolism of endogenous steroids, however the normal dose 600mg daily has been associated with complications such as hepatotoxicity.
Interestingly, (-)-deoxypergularinine was strongly synergistic with INH and rifampicin
but the synergy with streptomycin was borderline.
8%, respectively) were lower than those to erythromycin and there were no isolates resistant to ofloxacin and rifampicin
7% susceptibility to rifampicin
as compared to only 50% in a study carried out in Aga Khan University, Karachi21, making this drug a potential therapeutic option in Northern Pakistan.
Based on these results by all these authors were selected trimethoprim and rifampicin
as selective agents that could add to M17 and Elliker medium, to find a suitable medium that allows the growth and development of Lactococcus species.
Detection of Rifampicin
& Isoniazid Resistance Gene by Conventional PCR Using Suitable Primers
Background: Decreases in the bioavailability of rifampicin
(RFP) can lead to the development of drug resistance and treatment failure.
