Tuberculosis drug resistance in Canada 2003 :: H39-1/4-2003

reported susceptibility results of the Canadian Tuberculosis Laboratory Surveillance System

This report presents data from 2003 and adjusted data from 2002 (to reflect duplicate removal and late reporting) on tuberculosis drug resistance patterns in Canada. Of the 1,379 isolates in 2003 included for analysis, 173 were resistant to one or more first-line anti-tuberculosis drugs. This and previously collected data indicate that the prevalence of TB drug resistance in Canada is similar to that worldwide.
