For each MDR TB patient, genotype of infecting strain was assessed by standard spoligotyping methods [30, 31]. 2The relative OD values among seropositive samples are represented by “+++” (high OD values), “++” (mid OD values) and “+” (low OD values). Seronegative samples are indicated by “−” (OD values below cutoff measure).
