Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial disease considered as a global public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO) since 1993. In Sudan, MDR-TB represents a growing threat and one of the most important challenges that faced national tuberculosis program to establish a comprehensive multidrug-resistant tuberculosis management system. Objective: To characterize the diversity and frequency of mutations in Sudanese MDR-TB strains isolated from Wad Madani, Al-Gadarif and Khartoum using 16S rRNA and phylogeny approach. Material and Methods: A total of 60 MDR-TB isolates from Wad-Madani, Al-Gadarif and Khartoum were tested with molecular LPA (Genotype MTBDR plus) and GeneXpert MTB/RIF assay and Spoligotyping to confirm their resistance to RIF and INH. Sequencing and phylogenetic analysis was carried out using in silico tools. Result: This study revealed the circulation of different Sudanese MDR-TB strains isolated from Wad Madani and Al-Gadarif belonging to two distinct common ancestors. Two isolates from Wad Madani (isolate3 and isolate11) found in one main group which characterized by a novel mutation G511T in the 530 loop. Conclusion: The recurrence of C217A mutation in Wad Madani (isolate11) indicates the s...Continue Reading
