Prevalence of pulmonary TB and spoligotype pattern of **Mycobacterium tuberculosis** among TB suspects in a rural community in Southwest Ethiopia University of Antwerp Institute of Tropical Medicine
Molecular typing of Mycobacterium bovis from cattle reared in Midwest Brazil Institute of Tropical Medicine
Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (BTB), the pathogen responsible for serious economic impact on the livestock sector. In order to obtain data on isolated M. bovis strains and assist in the control and eradication program for BTB, a cross sectional descriptive molecular epidemiology study in the Brazilian Midwest was conducted. Through spoligotyping and 24-loci MIRU-VNTR methods, 37 clinical isolates of M. ...

Genetic diversity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis from Pará, Brazil, reveals a higher frequency of ancestral strains than previously reported in South America Institute of Tropical Medicine
There is only scarce information available on genotypic diversity of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) clinical isolates circulating in the Northern part of Brazil, a relatively neglected region regarding research on tuberculosis. We therefore characterized 980 MTBC clinical isolates from the state of Para, by spoligotyping and data was compared with patterns from around the world, besides analyzing drug susceptibility, and ...
