Hong Kong is a high-income city of China with intermediate tuberculosis (TB) burden and 1% of TB cases were multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). We aimed to examine the potential cost-effectiveness of adding bedaquiline or delamanid to background regimen (BR) for treatment of MDR-TB in Hong Kong.

The emergence of multidrug resistant-tuberculosis (MDR-TB), defined as Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains with in vitro resistance to at least isoniazid and rifampicin, has necessitated evaluation and...
The use of bedaquiline to treat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) may raise safety concerns. Currently, however, no clinical information is availab...
Bedaquiline is used as a substitute for second-line injectable (SLI) intolerance in the treatment of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), but the efficacy and safety of this strategy is unknown.
There is an urgent need to identify safe and effective combination treatments for multidrug-resistant (MDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection (TB). Bedaquiline, a new diarylquinoline, is approved f...
To evaluate the effectiveness of antiretroviral therapy and the associated factors according to the type of regimen used: Single Tablet Regimen or Multiple Tablet Regimen.
This study will evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of the anti-tuberculosis (TB) drugs bedaquiline (BDQ) and delamanid (DLM), alone and in combination, among participa...
Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is tuberculosis (TB) that is resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin, the two most important anti-TB drugs. It occurs in 3.6% of newly diag...
Evaluating the Pharmacokinetics, Safety, and Tolerability of Delamanid in Combination With Optimized Multidrug Background Regimen (OBR) for Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in HIV-Infected and HIV-Uninfected Children With MDR-TB
This study will evaluate the pharmacokinetics, safety, and tolerability of the anti-tuberculosis (TB) drug delamanid (DLM) in combination with an optimized multidrug background regimen (OB...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of an 8-week bedaquiline monotherapy regimen in participants with treatment-naive, multibacillary (MB) leprosy.
The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of steady-state clarithromycin once every 12 hour on the pharmacokinetic parameters of bedaquiline and its active metabolite M2 after a si...
A method of comparing the cost of a program with its expected benefits in dollars (or other currency). The benefit-to-cost ratio is a measure of total return expected per unit of money spent. This analysis generally excludes consideration of factors that are not measured ultimately in economic terms. Cost effectiveness compares alternative ways to achieve a specific set of results.
The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.
The assignment, to each of several particular cost-centers, of an equitable proportion of the costs of activities that serve all of them. Cost-center usually refers to institutional departments or services.
Coded listings of physician or other professional services using units that indicate the relative value of the various services they perform. They take into account time, skill, and overhead cost required for each service, but generally do not consider the relative cost-effectiveness. Appropriate conversion factors can be used to translate the abstract units of the relative value scales into dollar fees for each service based on work expended, practice costs, and training costs.
Studies designed to assess the efficacy of programs. They may include the evaluation of cost-effectiveness, the extent to which objectives are met, or impact.
