| Slide 24: Mode of Treatment Administration
in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-2000.
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 2003. Treatment administered as only directly
observed therapy (DOT) increased from approximately 22% in
1993 to 52% in 2000, 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 2000,
the proportion of patients who received at least some portion
of their treatment as DOT was 78%.
