Abstract

The results of sensitivity test during the last six years are presented. 356 strains of mycobacterium tuberculosis were tested with Streptomycin, P.A.S. and I.N.H. 8.2 per cent strains were sensitive while 36.3 per cent were resistant to all the three drugs. Total resistant to I.N.H. Streptomycin and P.A.S. were 82, 70 and 45 per cent respectively. The resistance to individual drug alone and specially to P.A.S. was much lower. The percentage of resistance is much higher than the strains tested by other workers.
