Each year, 10.4 million patients are diagnosed with and 1.8 million people die from Tuberculosis (TB). Despite the availability of highly effective and accessible medications in the developing world where TB is endemic, the 6-18 month treatment regimen is often thwarted as patients fail to comply due to a lack of knowledge about the disease, desire for privacy, and/or stigma avoidance. Inappropriate medication use leading to multi-drug resistant (MDR) TB infects 5% of all TB pa...
Tuberculosis is a major cause of mortality among AIDS patients in the developing world. The diagnosis of tuberculosis in HIV infected children is complicated by inefficient and expensive tuberculosis tests and vague diagnostic criteria. This study will evaluate the accuracy and efficiency of several different tuberculosis tests that could be used in developing countries.
Pulmonary tuberculosis is one of the most important infectious diseases in human with high mortality. Early diagnosis followed by antibiotic treatment is the only way for control of the disease. However, most of commercial tuberculosis diagnostic kits are of moderate sensitivity. Oncoprobe Inc. recently developed a tuberculosis diagnostic kit (HR-103) based on detection of antibody against Mycobacterium tuberculosis in serum. The main purpose of this project is to evalua...
This research is being done to determine if Nitazoxanide (NTZ) will cause a significant decrease in the number of M. tuberculosis bacteria in sputum after 14 days of treatment. The study is being conducted at the GHESKIO Centers in Port au Prince Haiti
The primary goal of this study is to assess the effectiveness of two alcohol interventions administered singly or in combination as an integrated component of TB care provided to patients with co-occurring TB and AUDs in Tomsk, Russia. Here we propose two parts of this study: First, a pilot study to provide Naltrexone to TB patients will be conducted. If feasibility and safety are demonstrated, then we will conduct a randomized clinical trial (RCT) of the following four ...
To achieve TB control, innovative case finding interventions are needed that will reach the broader affected population including those that do not access the health facilities. Systematic community case finding with highly sensitive screening and diagnostic tools are needed. At the facility level, the index of suspicion for TB by health care workers needs to be raised to ensure that all those that need TB screening are appropriately screened.
The purpose of this study is to examine the epidemiology of TB MR in Strasbourg and evaluate the second-line anti-tuberculosis treatments effectiveness, and the relevance and adequacy of the treatments with WHO recommendations. During years 2006-2016, all new cases of MDR TB or XDR TB diagnosed Strasbourg University Hospital will be included in the study (22 cases). Data were collected from the Center for Tuberculosis Control (CLAT) records, the patient's medical records.
The presence of M. tuberculosis in non-invasive throat swabs of patients withdrawn for suspected tuberculosis. Hypothesis 10% of patients infected by M. tuberculosis are carrier of M. tuberculosis pharyngeal. Secondary 1. Measure the time to diagnosis of pulmonary TB by comparing the sample versus noninvasive pharyngeal samples taken routinely. 2. Evaluation of the direct cost of the diagnosis of M. tuberculosis by comparing the sample versus...
Tuberculosis and vitamin D deficiency are important public health problems in India. Before the advent of effective antitubercular therapy, patients with tuberculosis were advised treatment and rest at sanatorium where sunshine was available in plenty. There have been reports associating vitamin D deficiency with tuberculosis in terms of incidence and beneficial response following addition of vitamin D to antitubercular therapy. Sputum AFB conversion rate is higher in patients...
The purpose of this study is to determine the better preoperative anti-tuberculosis treatment period of patients with spinal tuberculosis.
The trial will evaluate the extended bactericidal activity of 14 consecutive days of oral administration of PA-824 at 50, 100, 150 and 200 mg per day in adult patients with newly diagnosed, uncomplicated, smear positive tuberculosis (TB). A control group will receive standard TB treatment.
This was a clinical trial in HIV infected patients with tuberculosis. The study assessed whether the addition of prednisolone, a type of steroid medication, to the standard treatment for tuberculosis improved immune and viral outcomes in the patients. The study demonstrated that prednisolone increased the CD4 cell count as was hoped, but the beneficial effect was short-lived and was gone within 4 months of stopping therapy. Therefore, the use of prednisolone for tuberculosis in...
The trial will evaluate the extended bactericidal activity of 14 consecutive days of oral administration of PA-824 at 200, 600, 1000 and 1200 mg per day in adult patients with newly diagnosed, uncomplicated, smear positive tuberculosis. A control group will receive standard TB treatment.
This observer blind study will assess the safety and immunogenicity of different formulations of GSK Biologicals' 692342 tuberculosis vaccine in healthy adults aged 18 to 45 years with a positive PPD skin test. The Protocol Posting has been updated in order to comply with the FDA Amendment Act, Sep 2007.
After HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) remains the second leading cause of death due to an infectious disease globally. Retrospective studies from many countries, including the United States and South Africa, have consistently reported that in addition to having a higher burden of TB disease, patients with problem alcohol use have worse TB treatment outcomes. This prospective study will attempt to clarify both behavioral and biologic causal mechanisms underlying the deleterious effe...
The objective of this study is to compare the efficacy of two behavioral interventions at recalibrating physician heuristics.
Combine is a multicenter, randomized clinical trial that will evaluate combinations of three interventions for treating alcohol dependence. The goal is to determine whether improvement in treatment outcomes can be achieved by various combinations of drug and behavioral interventions. Two of the interventions will consist of pharmacological treatment with naltrexone (Revia) or acamprosate (Campral). The third intervention is a multicomponent behavioral therapy including such co...
The principal objective is to provide curative treatment to patients with confirmed multidrug-resistant tuberculosis who do not respond to treatment with standard first line anti tuberculosis drugs available on the essential drug list, and to monitor the treatment course in order to warrant success
The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of micronutrient supplementation among patients with active tuberculosis, half of who are co-infected with HIV-1
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Mycobacterium w in new lung tuberculosis patients. Mycobacterium w is a strain of bacterium which is being used as vaccine and adjunct drug against leprosy. This agent has also been found to be useful in the treatment of lung tuberculosis in limited number of patients. We are conducting this study in category-I patients( As per World Health Organization,Geneva classification of tuberculosis) having lung tubercu...
Most of the guidelines on the treatment of tuberculosis suggest that 6 months treatment is sufficient for extrapulmonary tuberculosis except for bone tuberculosis and tubercular meningitis. Despite these recommendations, most physicians treating abdominal tuberculosis use antituberculous therapy for 9 months, sometimes even 12 months without any scientific justification. In a randomized controlled trial, Balasubramaniam et al reported no difference in success rate of 6mo (99%) ...
The purpose of this study is to see if involving community health workers improves tuberculosis case finding and treatment outcome.
