Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-1997

Slide 17: Graph of Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-1997.
Slide 17: Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-1997. In 1993, the individual TB case report began collecting information on mode of treatment administration. This slide is based on data received at CDC by May 2000. Treatment administered under only directly observed therapy (DOT) increased from 22% in 1993 to 47% in 1997, the latest year with available data. The proportion of patients who received at least some portion of their treatment under DOT (based on combining treatment received only under DOT and that for which some portion was self-administered), also increased. In 1997, the proportion of patients who received at least some portion of their treatment under DOT was approximately 70%.
