Slide 21: Primary Isoniazid Resistance in U.S.-born 
        vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993-2007
Slide 21. Primary Isoniazid Resistance in U.S.-born vs. Foreign-born Persons, United States, 1993–2007. 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 9.4% in 2007. In U.S.-born persons, the percentage decreased from 6.8% in 1993 to 4.4% in 2007.
