A report of rifampin-resistant leprosy from northern and eastern India: identification and in silico analysis of molecular interactions.
Presence of point mutations within the drug resistance determining regions of Mycobacterium leprae (M. leprae) genome confers molecular basis of drug resistance to dapsone, rifampin and ofloxacin in leprosy. This study is focused on the identificatio

Recent Drug Resistant Epilepsy Spectrum in Eastern India.
The Magnitude of Drug-resistant Epilepsy (DRE) in India, being unknown, takes a heavy toll on the patients and society in the form of prolonged dependence, unemployment, morbidity and mortality. We tried to explore the clinical, electro-physiological

Clinical profile and follow-up of 51 pediatric neurocysticercosis cases: A study from Eastern India.
Our present observational study attempted to evaluate the clinical profiles, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up results of 51 pediatric neurocysticercosis patients over a mean duration of five years (from January 2006 to December 2010).

Draft Genome Sequence of Multidrug-Resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis Strain CWCFVRF MDRTB 670, Isolated from the Sputum of a Patient from Chennai, India, with Clinically Suspected Tuberculosis.
We announce the draft genome sequence of a multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain (CWCFVRF MDRTB 670) isolated from sputum from a patient with clinically suspected tuberculosis.

Laboratory confirmed miltefosine resistant cases of visceral leishmaniasis from India.
Miltefosine unresponsive and relapse cases of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) are increasingly being reported. However, there has been no laboratory confirmed reports of miltefosine resistance in VL. Here, we report two laboratory confirmed cases of VL f

Multidrug resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis: a retrospective katG and rpoB mutation profile analysis in isolates from a reference center in Brazil.
Multidrug resistance is a critical factor in tuberculosis control. To gain better understanding of multidrug resistant tuberculosis in Brazil, a retrospective study was performed to compare genotypic diversity and drug resistance associated mutations

rifampicin for rapid detection of rifampicin resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains of clinically suspected multi-drug resistance tuberculosis cases.
Multi-drug resistance (MDR) TB is defined as tuberculosis (TB) disease caused by a strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) that was resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin (RIF). Emerging Multidrug-Resistant TB is one of the major concerns

Comparing Seasonal Pattern of Laboratory Confirmed Cases of Pertussis with Clinically Suspected Cases.
During recent decades, there has been limited attention on the seasonal pattern of pertussis within a high vaccine coverage population. This study aimed to compare the seasonal patterns of clinical suspected pertussis cases with those of laboratory c
