Abstract

Significant increases in the MIC90S of linezolid in multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates were seen between the baseline period of 2001 to 2003 (0.5 μg/ml) and 2004 (2 μg/ml). The MICs were 4 μg/ml in three strains. Both fluoroquinolones (except levofloxacin) and kanamycin were found to have statistically significant degrees of concordance with linezolid.
