• Tuberculosis
  • Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Mycobacterium tuberculosis with a high mortality rate is highly resistant to the standard drugs, rifampicin and isoniazid, commonly used to treat the tuberculosis disease. (medindia.net)
  • The risk factors for contracting the disease is estimated using tuberculin skin test (TST) and interferon-γ-release assays, degree of exposure to the MDR Mycobacterium tuberculosis and drug susceptibility of the bacterial strain. (medindia.net)
  • With MDR tuberculosis disease rising at an alarming rate the experts feel there is a critical need for in-depth research to assess the effectives of the drugs and treatment in order to control the disease. (medindia.net)
  • treatment
  • To compare the response to treatment between partially supervised drug administration and unsupervised drug administration. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A secondary objective is to compare the utility of partially supervised directly observed treatment with unsupervised administration of anti-retroviral drugs. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Prevention is always better than cure especially in the case of fatal diseases where the causative agents remain resistive to many therapeutic drugs and the treatment is expensive. (medindia.net)
  • The adverse effects of the drugs, other factors influencing the treatment in children still remain unexplored. (medindia.net)
