Focus TB

Antibiogram – MTB (Moxifloxacin Higher Dose)

Antibiogram test or Antimicrobial Susceptibility testing is performed to measure the susceptibility of microbes to certain antibiotics. Antibiogram – MTB (Moxifloxacin higher dose) test checks for the sensitivity or resistance of MTB to the antibiotic – Moxifloxacin at higher doses (2.0 µg/ml). Moxifloxacin, a second-line drug belongs to the fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics and is used in treating multidrug-resistant TB. It is bactericidal in nature that interferes with replication of bacterial DNA. As per research, Mycobacteria resistant to the critical concentration of a drug can be susceptible at higher concentration, thus making the drug available for treatment.
