To assess the joint use of purified protein derivative (PPD) and delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) antigens in screening individuals of unknown HIV serostatus for tuberculosis (TB) preventive therapy eligibility.
A group of migrant farm workers were screened for HIV and skin-tested with PPD, tetanus toxoid (TET), Candida albicans (CAN) and mumps (MUM) antigens by the Mantoux method.
Anergy was defined as a <=2 mm reaction to all four antigens.
Eligibility for preventive therapy was defined as a reaction of >=5 mm to PPD among HIV-seropositive individuals, >=10 mm among HIV-seronegatives, or anergy.
A total of 253 out of 271 individuals had sufficient data for analysis.
