Mozayeni says that bart become resistant to rifampin rapidly, so if it happen, it becomes resistant at all abx of rifampin class like rifabutin? It's curiously because some people say that when azitro becomes resistant, all macrolides become.
Carol - I haven’t heard that - I did watch the webinar where he spoke about
Bart and Biaxin/Rif treatment. Don’t recall him mentioning that.
I didn’t think that the was the case - if one is resistant - everything in that class also is.
Plus I also thought pairing a second antibiotic helped to prevent the resistance.
