RNFL thickness associated with ethambutol optic neuropathy during the early stages was no different from the controls. Although not statistically significant, the relative thickening of temporal RNFL in our patients might represent a mild swelling of the papillomacular bundle.
Entrapment efficiency of ethambutol hydrochloride ranged from 12.20% to 25.81%. Zeta potential values inferred stability of neutral and negatively charged formulations. In vitro release was biphasic. Lung targeting was increased by niosomal encapsulation. Biological evaluation revealed superiority of niosomal ethambutol hydrochloride over the free drug.

Our results indicated that M. abscessus infection developed during the treatment for non-abscessus mycobacterial disease, which was mainly due to M. avium complex pulmonary disease in most patients. M. abscessus infection thus occurred via microbial substitution. This phenomenon should be considered an important issue during the treatment for non-abscessus mycobacterial disease, which requires long-term medication.

Of 260 Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates, 41 (15.8%) were resistant to at least one first-line drug, 13 (5.0%) were multidrug-resistant (MDR) and 9 (3.5%) were resistant to all first-line drugs. Any resistance to INH, RMP, SM, EMB and PZA was respectively 36 (13.8%), 15 (5.8%), 26 (10.0%), 19 (7.3%) and 12 (4.6%). Of 214 new and 46 previously treated cases, respectively 8 (3.7%) and 5 (10.9%) were MDR. All isolates were susceptible to all second-line drugs.

These results suggest that the actual heterogeneity of the bacillary population in patients, especially in high TB incidence settings, may be frequently underestimated using current analytical schemes. These findings have therefore important implications for correct interpretation and evaluation of molecular epidemiology data and in treatment evaluations.

We present here the first report of disseminated skin Mycobacterium infections in two liver transplant recipients, in which hsp65 gene sequencing was used for rapid species identification. Both patients had hepatitis B virus-related cirrhosis and diabetes mellitus and presented with progressive generalized, nodular skin lesions. In one patient, a 50-year-old woman who had frequent contact with marine fish, an acid-fast bacillus was isolated from skin biopsy tissue after 2 months of culture. While awaiting phenotypic identification results, hsp65 gene sequencing showed that it was most closely related to that of Mycobacterium marinum with 100% nucleotide identity. The patient was treated with oral rifampin, ethambutol, and moxifloxacin. In the other patient, a 59-year-old woman, direct PCR for Mycobacterium using hsp65 gene from skin biopsy tissue was positive, with the sequence most closely related to that of M. haemophilum with 100% nucleotide identity. Based on PCR results, the patient was treated with clarithromycin, ethambutol, moxifloxacin, and amikacin. A strain of M. haemophilum was only isolated after 3 months. Skin lesions of both patients resolved after 1 year of antimycobacterial therapy. Nontuberculous Mycobacterium infections should be considered in liver transplant recipients presenting with chronic, nodular skin lesions. This report highlights the crucial role of hsp65 gene PCR and sequencing on both cultured isolates and direct clinical specimens for rapid diagnosis of slow-growing Mycobacterium infection.

The rifampicin and isoniazid resistance rates were much higher than those in the adult TB population in India.
