TBnet biobank recommendations

Samples (serum, urine, QuantiFERON supernatants) can be collected for future analysis of biomarkers.
The timing of samples should be:
- before treatment
- 2 weeks after the start of treatment; and
- at least 2 months after start of treatment and
- 6 months after the start of treatment.
If samples (blood, urine, sputum) can be obtained weekly in the first two months and monthly in months 2 to 6, that would be ideal.
Reminder: All data collections over and above statutory notification and all samples collected will require LOCAL ethical approval.  In some countries, a specific project is required, whilst in others setting up a biobank is acceptable.  Please conform to your local requirements. Data and samples to be kept locally.
