        vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993-2004
Slide 21. Primary Isoniazid Resistance in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2004.  This graph shows primary isoniazid resistance in U.S.-born vs. foreign-born persons.  The percentage of isoniazid resistance (based on initial isolates from persons with no prior history of TB) was approximately two times higher among foreign-born persons than among U.S.-born persons.  In foreign-born persons, the percentage declined from 12.3% in 1993 to 10.4% in 2004, including a drop below 10% in 2001.  In U.S.-born persons, the percentage decreased from 6.8% in 1993 to 4.0% in 2002, and then increased to 4.4% in 2003 and 4.5% in 2004.
