TitleWGS to predict drug susceptibility against first-line anti-tuberculosis drugs
Study TypeOther
Abstract We investigated the reliability of WGS to predict drug susceptibility and analysed the discrepancies between WGS and phenotypic DST by MGIT against the first-line drugs rifampicin, isoniazid, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide. In total 1,136 MTBC isolates from 2016/2017 were included. The negative predic .. [more]
