About this Item

Paperback. 96 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.2in.A major obstacle in Tuberculosis (TB) control is the long duration of treatment. Therefore, treatment shortening is one of the highest priorities for TB control programs worldwide. Fluoroquinolones (FQ) have been found to be highly active against Mycobacterium Tuberculosis and recommended as second line agents for TB treatment. Recent evidences have shown that the newer generation FQ add to the effects of existing anti-TB drugs and perhaps allow TB treatment to be shortened.

It included 10 studies from comprehensive search of electronic databases. The review will help highlight the challenges around the use of FQ in tuberculosis which will be of great importance in justifying shortening TB treatment duration.
