Title:
Effects of Treatment Interruption Patterns on Treatment Success Among Patients With Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis in Armenia and Abkhazia
Authors:
Bastard, M; Sanchez-Padilla, E; Hewison, C; Hayrapetyan, A; Khurkhumal, S; Varaine, F; Bonnet, M
Journal:
Journal of Infectious Diseases
Abstract:
The success of the current treatment regimen for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is poor partly due to a high defaulter rate. Many studies explored predictors of poor outcomes, but very few assessed the impact of treatment interruptions on MDR-TB treatment outcomes.
