Factors associated with death among HIV‐uninfected TB patients in Thailand, 2004–2006
Abstract:Objectives In countries with both TB and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemics, HIV is known to be the most powerful risk factor for death during tuberculosis (TB) treatment. Few recent studies have evaluated risk factors for death among HIV‐uninfected TB patients in these countries. We analysed data from a multi‐province demonstration project in Thailand to answer this question.
