Submission + - 'Totally Drug Resistant' Tuberculosis Reported In (singularityhub.com)

kkleiner writes: "A report out of India identifies four new cases of tuberculosis that are completely resistant to drug treatment. Doctors gave all four patients, ages ranging from 20 to 57, the full first-line and second-line batteries of drugs. The first-line included four to five drugs and the second-line five to six drugs for the patients. The drugs had no effect. The spread of this 'totally drug resistant' strain of Tuberculosis is virtually unstoppable at this point."
