South Africa: New Resistance Tests Set to Improve TB Treatment
[spotlight] Some strains of the tuberculosis (TB) bacterium have mutated to become resistant to some of the drugs commonly used to treat TB.

What's worse, these drugs often have significant side effects. (Source: AllAfrica News: Health and Medicine)
