  1. Association of tuberculosis infection with increased time in or admission to the New York City jail system.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective.-To establish the association between time spent in jail or number of jail admissions and development of tuberculosis in a cohort of inmates incarcerated without evidence of tuberculosis infection on entry.

    Design.-Nested case-control design within a prospective cohort.

    A cohort of 2636 tuberculin skin test-negative inmates incarcerated in 1985 was matched against the Tuberculosis Registry of New York City.

    Each case of tuberculosis reported prior to May 15, 1992, was assigned to three randomly selected controls from the cohort.

    We determined time spent in jail by reviewing the computer records of the New York City Inmate Information System.

    Conditional logistic regression modeling was performed to establish the association of jail time with the development of tuberculosis.
