Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons Reported
United States, 1993-1999
| 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%.
