ARNEZ-DURAN, Rodrigo Arturo; AYLLON-ANZALDO, Luis Alberto; CASTRO-SOTO, Rosario  and  LOZANO-BELTRAN, Daniel. The MODS Method, an Alternative for the Diagnosis of Tuberculosis and the Detection of Multidrug-Resistance Strains. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2010, vol.13, n.2, pp.81-85. ISSN 1817-7433.

Has been repeatedly highlighted the need for a rapid, sensitive, specific and low-cost method that allows early diagnosis of Tuberculosis and multidrug-resistance strains. Responding to this need, a method has been designed, wich is able to distinguish between patients with Tuberculosis and healthy control patients, also facilítate the detection of drug-resistance strains to the drugs isoniazid and rifampin for faster and more effective way compared to the tests considered as Gold Standard. In this review we discuss the method Microscopic-Observation Drug Susceptibility (MODS).

Keywords : tuberculosis; diagnosis; multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
