Conclusion: Mutation pattern of rpoB gene that confers rifampicin resistance is different to a little extent from other national and international studies while pattern is same for katG gene that confers isoniazid resistance.
Conclusion: One novel mutation at codon 303 in catalase-peroxidase gene was found in the study, and it could contribute to isoniazid resistance.
Isoniazid (hidrazid acid 4-piridinkarboksilat, INH) is a mainstay chemical agent used for the treatment of TB, since first introduced in 1951 to the present.
Therefore, all 50 latent TB patients were offered three treatment options: 1) 9 months of daily isoniazid, self-monitored, with monthly visits to the health department; 2) 4 months of daily rifampin, self-monitored, with visits to the health department every 2 weeks for the first month, and once per month thereafter; or 3) 12 weekly doses of rifapentine and isoniazid administered under DOT.
tuberculosis with available TB drug susceptibility tests results for at least isoniazid and rifampicin.

As a result, of the 42 strains resistant to isoniazid, 5 strains had mutations in inhA-15.
1 Standard treatment of tube- rculosis consists of a six to nine months course of anti- biotics named isoniazid (INH) pyrazinamide (PZA) rifampicin (RIF) and ethambutol or streptomycin.
The researchers added isoniazid and a 'reducing agent' known as cysteine to the TB in a test tube, expecting the bacteria to develop drug resistance.
