Mode of Treatment Administration in Persons
Reported with TB
United States, 1993–2003
| Slide 25. Mode of Treatment Administration
in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993–2003.
In 1993, the reporting areas began providing information about
mode of treatment administration on the individual TB case
report form. Treatment administered as only directly observed
therapy (DOT) increased from 22% in 1993 to 57% in 2003, the
latest year with available data. There was also an increase
in 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). In 2003, 85% of patients
received at least some portion of their treatment as DOT.
