What is this test?

Tuberculosis is a lung affecting disease caused by bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTb). Tuberculosis causes extreme breathing difficulty and can often be fatal. The symptoms of Tuberculosis are chest pain, pain while breathing, excessive cough, presence of blood in sputum and fatigue. One of the drugs used to control Tuberculosis by killing MTb, is Ethionamide. Certain MTb strains are, however, resistant to Ethionamide. An antibiogram can be an effective tool to detect drug resistant MTb in a patient. The test will either show a clearing of colonies after being subjected to Ethionamide, or will show no clearing. If colonies show clearing, then the MTb strain causing Tuberculosis symptoms in the patient is not Ethionamide resistant. The drug can be used for treatment. If colonies show no clearing, then the MTb strain causing Tuberculosis symptoms is Ethionamide resistant. This drug cannot be used for treatment.
