Background: Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial lung infection. Typical treatment using anti-TB drugs lasts about 6 months. Some people with less severe TB might not need to take the drugs that long. Researchers think a PET/CT lung scan along with estimating how much TB is in the lungs might show who will be cured after only 4 months of treatment. Objective: To demonstrate that 4 months of treatment is not inferior to 6 months of treatment for people with less severe TB. Eligibility: People 18-75 years old who have TB treatable with standard TB drugs Design: Participants will be screened with: Medical history Physical exam Blood and urine tests HIV test Sputum sample: Participants will be asked to cough sputum into a cup. Chest x-ray Participants will start TB drugs. They will have visits at weeks 1, 2, 4, 8, 12, and about 6 more times during the 18-month study. Visits include: Sputum samples Physical exam Blood tests PET/CT scans at 2-3 visits: Participants fast for about 6 hours before the scan. Participants get FDG, a type of sugar that gives off a small amount of radiation, through an arm vein. They lie on a table in a machine that takes pictures of the body. Chest x-rays at 1-2 visits Participants who we believe are likely to be cured at 4 months will be randomly assigned to get either 6 months of treatment or 4 months of treatment. Participants may be asked to join a substudy using their sputum samples or additional blood tests.
Description: Estimation of the lower bound of a one-sided 95% confidence interval of the difference in success rates between arms B and C. If the lower bound is greater than -7%, this will be evidence that the treatment-shortening arm is not inferior to the standard duration arm.Measure: Comparison of the rate of treatment success at 18 months (after treatment initiation) between Arms B and C. Time: 18 months
Description: The difference (and 95% confidence interval) in treatment success rates between a combined A+B Arm (with Arm A participants selected to represent a true 6-month standard of care population) and a combined Arm A+C (with the remaining Arm A participants selected to represent a treatment shortening strategy arm, and no overlap in Arm A participants assigned to B and C).Measure: Radiologic, Immunologic and microbiologic measures Time: 18 months
The COVID-19 pandemic might be an opportunity to review and refine our practices in anti TB treatment. For the follow-up of selected patients, telephone consultations may be efficient and cost-effective. The aim of the study is to assess the efficiency and the satisfaction with telephone consultation for the pharmacist and the TB patient. The study was conducted in tertiary care hospital TB control centres patients.
Description: To improve patient centered care/patient prescription refilMeasure: Efficiency of the telephone consultation, Time: 2 Months
Description: Patient satisfaction Patient satisfaction resulting from pharmacist-led pharmaceutical care will be assessed Patient satisfaction feedback (PSF)Measure: Patient satisfaction Time: 2 Month

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
