Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons Reported with TB
United States, 1993-1999

Tuberculosis in the United States
Slide 24: Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-1999. In 1993, the reporting areas began collecting information about mode of treatment administration on the individual TB case report form. This slide is based on data received at CDC by April 2002. Treatment administered as only directly observed therapy (DOT) increased from approximately 22% in 1993 to 50% in 1999, the latest year with available data. The proportion of patients who received at least some portion of their treatment as DOT (based on combining the percentage of patients who received only DOT and the percentage for whom some portion was self-administered), also increased. In 1999, the proportion of patients who received at least some portion of their treatment as DOT was 77%.
