Then, anti-TB drug susceptibility testing of MDR-TB isolates particularly for SLDs, namely p-aminosalicylic acid (0.5 [micro]g/ml), ciprofloxacin (20 [micro]g/ml), amikacin (20 [micro]g/ml), d-cycloserine (30 [micro]g/ml), kanamycin (20 [micro]g/ml), and ethionamide (20 [micro]g/ml), was carried out on solid Lowenstein-Jensen medium using the 1% proportion sensitivity method as per the WHO guidelines.

The difference between the two regimens is that Kanamycin is replaced with Capreomycin; and Cycloserine (Cs) and p-aminosalicylic acid (PAS) both are given for re-treatment cases (and either of them for new cases).
These included allobarbital, p-aminosalicylic acid, and diphenylpyraline; however, these compounds were considered highly unlikely components of clinical specimens.
Most dipstick pads that test for urobilinogen use p-dimethylaminobenzaldehyde and are susceptible to false-positive results from such compounds as p-aminosalicylic acid, antipyrine, apronalide, chlorpromazine, phenazopyridine, phenothiazine, sulfadiazine, and sulfonamide.[3,4] One manufacturer included p-methoxybenzene-diazonium-fluoroborate as a reagent on its dipstick, producing a more specific test.[4] False-negative results may yet occur when large quantities of nitrite are present.
