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.
