Tuberculosis is a lung affecting disease caused by bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTb). Tuberculosis causes extreme breathing difficulty and can often be fatal. The symptoms of Tuberculosis are chest pain, pain while breathing, excessive cough, presence of blood in sputum and fatigue. One of the drugs used to control Tuberculosis by killing MTb, is Ethionamide. Certain MTb strains are, however, resistant to Ethionamide. An antibiogram can be an effective tool to detect drug resistant MTb in a patient.
