Abstract

Fluoroquinolones are being used more frequently for the treatment of multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTB). This study was designed to determine the frequency of the emergence of fluoroquinolone-resistant strains in Taiwan and to assess whether this might be due to use of fluoroquinolones for treatment of patients with MDR or because of increased use of fluoroquinolones in the community for treatment of other infections. We also sought to determine whether there might be clonal spread of fluoroquinolone resistance. A total of 3497 clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis complex were obtained during 1995-2003, of which 141 were selected. They consisted of 62 isolates fully susceptible to four first-line drugs, 33 isolates resistant to rifampicin and isoniazid (MDR), and 46 isolates with a variety of any drug resistant patterns other than MDR (combination group). The MICs were determined for ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin and levofloxacin. An increase in the MIC90 and rates of resistance to ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin and levofloxacin were noted only in the MDR group. The rates were higher among strains isolated between 1998-2003 compared with those obtained between 1995-1997 (rate of resistance, 20% v...Continue Reading
