CURE OF MDR-TB

The Tuberculosis Network Clinical Trialsgroup (TBnet), an international consortium of clinicians and scientists, has proposed new treatment outcome definitions for MDR-TB. TBnet documented the management of patients with MDR-TB at 23 different sites across Europe where they found that treatment outcomes according to the definitions proposed by the WHO did not correlate to sustained culture conversion and being free of relapse in the absence of therapy. Applying the novel TBnet MDR-TB outcome criteria “cure” is reached twice as often as compared to the WHO criteria in their study.
