  1. Preventive therapy for contacts of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis : a Delphi survey.

    Article - En anglais


    Several outbreaks of multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) have recently occurred in which healthcare workers and others have become infected.

    Given the lack of clinical data to guide preventive therapy for such contacts, a Delphi survey of a panel of 31 TB therapy experts was undertaken to identify a consensus regimen.


    An initial questionnaire presented three scenarios describing persons with significant exposure to MDR-TB and with new tuberculin skin test reactions>15 mm (except one anergic patient) without evidence of disease.

    Panelists were asked to suggest possible preventive therapy regimens.
