Monitoring Treatment of Childhood Tuberculosis and the Role of Therapeutic Drug Monitoring.

Andrea T Cruz, Jeffrey R Starke,

Most children tolerate the first-line antibiotics used to treat Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) very well. The most common adverse effect is gastrointestinal distress unrelated to hepatotoxicity; the latter is seen in less than 1% of children. Despite the infrequency of hepatotoxicity, the potential long-term impact of hepatic insufficiency dictates that all ... Read more >>
