Pathogens

Mycobacterium tuberculosis
(bacterium incl. MDR)

Mycobacteria
Drying, freezing, sulphuric acid baths: when other microorganisms have long since been knocked out, mycobacteria survive.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an anaerobic, Gram-positive, rod-shaped bacterium of the Mycobacteriaceae family.

Infections with this bacterium result in tuberculosis, which is one of the most common infectious diseases around the world.

The increasing multi-resistance to antibiotics (MDR = multidrug resistance) hinders the treatment of infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

Transmission mainly occurs via droplets or particles in the air.
