Genetic drug resistance tests as good in gauging treatment outcome, death risk as traditional culture-based tests Genetic drug resistance tests as good in gauging treatment outcome, death risk as traditional culture-based tests
Novel molecular tests are gaining popularity as a rapid way to detect genetic mutations that render tuberculosis impervious to drugs. Yet, how well these new tests fare in gauging risk of actual drug failure and patient death has remained unclear.

New mechanism for bacterial division discovered in some bacteria New mechanism for bacterial division discovered in some bacteria
Scientists show how some pathogenic bacteria -- such as the mycobacteria that cause tuberculosis -- use a previously unknown mechanism to coordinate their division. The discovery could help develop new ways to fight them.
