Researchers from K-RITH and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have traced the roots of extensively drug-resistant TB in KwaZulu-Natalto the late 1950s. Their findings, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, have vital implications for the way we understand how XDR strains are spread, and the management and treatment of TB.
