What is this test?

Susceptibilities should be performed on the first organism isolated from a patient, and at one and three-month intervals if that organism continues to be isolated while the patient is on therapy. Susceptibility tests should be performed in patients with recurrent tuberculosis, as resistant strains are common in recurrent infection. Failure to take all drugs in a multidrug regimen can lead to a shift toward resistant organisms and treatment failure. Nontuberculosis Mycobacteria, particularly strains of the M avium complex, are resistant to those drugs used for therapy of M tuberculosis.It is thought that clofazimine acts by inhibiting the formation of matrixes within the DNA and thus delaying the growth of the bacterium. It is recommended that clofazimine is introduced before linezolid and other medicines with unclear efficacy.3
