genetic diversity in clinical isolates of mycobacterium avium complex from guinea-bissau, west africa.isolates of mycobacterium avium complex (mac) were cultured from sputum samples obtained from patients in guinea-bissau, west africa. twenty-eight isolates hybridising with mac probe (accuprobe) were further characterised by different molecular techniques: hybridisation with species-specific probes (accuprobe) for m. avium and m. intracellulare, partial sequencing of 16s rrna gene and pcr detection of the dt1-dt6 sequences and the macrophage-induced gene (mig). only one of the 28 isolates reacte ...200415555539
mycobacterium avium complex sputum isolates from patients with respiratory symptoms in total, 814 patients with clinically suspected tuberculosis were examined at the raoul follerau hospital in bissau, guinea-bissau. sputum samples were collected, and cultures were grown on löwenstein-jensen medium. isolates were further characterized by standard biochemical methods and nucleic acid probes for mycobacterium tuberculosis and mycobacterium avium complex (mac). serum samples were collected and analyzed for antibodies against human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) types 1 and 2. of 17 ...19968537673
