mycobacterium scrofulaceum infection in erythrocebus patas monkeys.mycobacterium scrofulaceum was cultured from two of seven tuberculin reactors in a group of 12 erythrocebus patas monkeys. one monkey reacted atypically to 0.1 ml of 2.5 mg veterinary tuberculin after having shown no reaction to four previous tests administered at 2-week intervals. the reaction consisted of edema with no induration or erythema at 24 hours and was completely dissipated at 36 hours. responses to additional tests using veterinary tuberculin (2.5 mg) and mycobacterium bovis purified ...1979108474

drug sensitivity of m. leprae isolated from leprosy patients administered dds for long period of time.drug sensitivity was tested using liquid medium on three stains isolated from the subcutaneous nodules of l-type patients who have long been administered dds alone. the results revealed that the first strain was resistant to dds up to the concentration of 1.0 microgram/ml suggesting as if it were dds dependent or enhanced strain, whereas the second strain was completely sensitive to dds even at the lowest concentration of 0.01 microgram/ml suggesting possible inactivation of this drug in the hos ...1978108909
miliary tuberculosis in children. clinical and laboratory manifestation in 19 patients.the clinical course of 19 children with miliary tuberculosis was studied. complaints were nonspecific and included fever, anorexia, weight loss, and night sweats. although all but one child had a miliary infiltrate visible on the chest roentgenogram, only 13 had a positive reaction to the purified protein derivative of the tuberculin test at admission to the hospital. outcome was excellent unless the child also had tuberculous meningitis or was in a far advanced state of the disease. miliary tub ...1979108996
the booster phenomenon in serial tuberculin determine the frequency, magnitude, and causes of the booster phenomenon in tuberculin testing, a total of 1,478 employees from 10 hospitals throughout the united states received sequential intradermal tests using ppd-t. in addition, approximately 70 per cent were initially tested with ppd-g. boosting was found in all age groups tested, but increased with age. it occurred as soon as one week after an initial tuberculin test, but rarely before that time. the boosted reactions were apparently c ...1979109023
primary drug resistance in children. drug susceptibility of strains of mycobacterium tuberculosis isolated from children during the years 1973 through 1977 at the kings county hospital center of brooklyn.a continuing study of the frequency of primary drug resistance among children treated at the kings county hospital center of brooklyn during the years 1973 through 1977 showed a high incidence of primary drug resistance to isoniazid (8.8 per cent) and to streptomycin (12.3 per cent). in contrast, there were no strains resistant to cycloserine, viomycin, ethambutol, or rifampin, and only one of 57 strains (1.8 per cent) was resistant to ethionamide, and one (1.8 per cent) was resistant to para-am ...1979109024

antigenic differences between extracts of actively replicating and synchronized resting cells of mycobacterium tuberculosis.protein extracts were prepared from aerobically replicating cells of mycobacterium tuberculosis and from synchronized non-replicating cells derived from the sediments of non-agitated cultures. although both preparations share a number of antigens, the extracts of the non-replicating cells also contain antigenic components that are not shared by the replicating cells, and which can be isolated and visualized by immunoaffinity chromatography and immunoelectrophoretic techniques.1979110697
