The objective of the study was to compare the compliance and the side effects of a short course to treatment of latent tuberculosis infection during 3 months(isoniazid plus rifampin)group ...
The purpose of this study is to study the effect that treatment of dormant tuberculosis infection has on the immunological system. We expect to observe an impact over the production of c...
An open-label, randomised controlled trial comparing compliance to treatment for latent tuberculosis infection in socially marginalised citizens. Participants will be randomized to either ...
There are new TB vaccines already developed that need to be tried in humans to assess their efficacy. The researchers had previously shown that production of interferon gamma by T cells i...
The objectives of this open-label Phase III clinical trial is to compare the effectiveness and tolerability of a three-month (12-dose) regimen of weekly rifapentine and isoniazid (3RPT/INH...
Currently, treatment of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) in Australia consists most commonly of a 9-month course of isoniazid (9H). A 3-month course of weekly isoniazid and rifapentine (3HP) has b...
A short-course regimen of three months of weekly rifapentine and isoniazid (3HP) has recently been recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as an alternative to at least six months of daily ...
The prevalence of isoniazid mono resistance is high in India. We investigated the molecular epidemiological characteristics association with the isoniazid resistance mutations in Mycobacterium tubercu...
Treatment of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) is critical to the control and elimination of tuberculosis disease (TB) in the United States. In 2011, CDC recommended a short-course combination regi...
Isoniazid is recommended for prevention of tuberculosis (TB) in HIV- infected adults but its efficacy in children living with HIV (CLHIV) is not known. We performed a systematic review to assess the e...
Antibacterial agent used primarily as a tuberculostatic. It remains the treatment of choice for tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis resistant to ISONIAZID and RIFAMPIN and at least three of the six main classes of second-line drugs (AMINOGLYCOSIDES; polypeptide agents; FLUOROQUINOLONES; THIOAMIDES; CYCLOSERINE; and PARA-AMINOSALICYLIC ACID) as defined by the CDC.
Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.
An antitubercular agent often administered in association with ISONIAZID. The sodium salt of the drug is better tolerated than the free acid.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN B 6 in the diet, characterized by dermatitis, glossitis, cheilosis, and stomatitis. Marked deficiency causes irritability, weakness, depression, dizziness, peripheral neuropathy, and seizures. In infants and children typical manifestations are diarrhea, anemia, and seizures. Deficiency can be caused by certain medications, such as isoniazid.
