Primary Isoniazid Resistance in U.S.-born vs.
United States, 1993–2005
| Slide 21. Primary Isoniazid Resistance
in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2005.
This graph shows primary isoniazid resistance in U.S.-born
vs. foreign-born persons. Based on initial isolates from persons
with no prior history of TB, the percentage of isoniazid resistance
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 9.8% in 2005. In
U.S.-born persons, the percentage decreased from 6.8% in 1993
to 4.1% in 2005.
