Abstract
Fully treatable tuberculosis with isoniazid and rifampicin has progressed to multi-drug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) and to increasingly more severe status of drug resistance extensively drug resistant (XDR). Most recently, totally drug resistant (TDR) tuberculosis has arisen in India in large numbers. Although the threat to global health is real and worrisome, the development of laboratory programs that fully characterize the infecting Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain for virulence, antibiotic susceptibility to first, second and promising drugs, over-expressed efflux pumps, the effectiveness of the patient?s macrophage for enhanced ex vivo killing of the clinical isolate by adjuvant drugsand the determination of drug sensitive latency of the isolate are components of the recommender programme that will be discussed in detail.
