Submission + - Totally drug-resistant TB emerges in India->

ananyo writes: Physicians in India have identified a form of incurable tuberculosis there (http://dx.doi.org/10.1093/cid/cir889), raising further concerns over increasing drug resistance to the disease. Although reports call this latest form a "new entity", researchers suggest that it is instead another development in a long-standing problem.

The discovery makes India the third country in which a completely drug-resistant form of the disease has emerged, following cases documented in Italy in 2007 and Iran in 2009.
