A comparison of the E-test and proportion methods for susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

A comparison of the E-test and proportion methods for susceptibility testing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between three antibiotic susceptibility methods, the proportion method on Lowenstein Jensen medium (LJ medium), the proportion method on Middlebrook 7H11 agar (7H11 agar), and the E-test for Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Fifty M. tuberculosis isolates were tested in vitro against isoniazid, rifampicin, streptomycin, and ethambutol according to the E-test and the proportion methods on 7H11 agar and LJ medium.

Antimycobacterial susceptibility tests take weeks, and delayed therapy can lead to spread of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Therefore, rapid, accurate and cost-effective methods are required for proper therapy selection. In this study, the Mycobacter...
