The test-system "Sensititre MycoTB" was applied to analyze 159 cultures of M.tuberculosis isolated from patients with tuberculosis. According data of investigation in "Bactec 960" they are identified as cultures with multiple medicinal sensitivity. The detailed analysis of results of application of mentioned test-system (mycoTB) demonstrated that significant part of cultures with multiple medicinal sensitivity is sensitive to anti-tuberculosis pharmaceuticals. The significant part of cultures is characterized by "intermediate" sensitivity/resistance than can be established by mentioned test-system. This data permits enlarging possibilities of chemotherapy of tuberculosis.
