NTGSN Special Issue References
In response to the increase in the number of reported tuberculosis
cases in the United States, CDC funded regional laboratories to
provide genotyping services to support TB prevention and control
programs in outbreak investigations and to conduct studies on using
genotyping in TB epidemiology and control. This network was expanded
to include sentinel surveillance sampling in 1996 when CDC established
the National Tuberculosis Genotyping and Surveillance Network (NTGSN)
as a 5-year project. NTGSN comprised CDC and seven laboratories
and seven sentinel surveillance sites in the United States. Sentinel
surveillance sites included the states of Arkansas, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Michigan, and New Jersey and six counties in California (Alameda,
Contra Costa, Marin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Solano); and four
counties in Texas (Dallas, Tarrant, Cameron, and Hidalgo). The November
2002 special issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases contains
the following reports of the studies resulting from the NTGSN. The
special issue of the journal is available at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/EID/vol8no11/contents_v8n11.htm.
