So there currently isn't a treatment for it??
...Chris - What’s the long-term prognosis here with TB? The numbers look pretty scary. About a third of the world’s population are now carrying it. Clifford - True but in terms of the most cases of TB treatment is very effective if you can make sure that he patient is taking the therapy regularly. The places where you can’t trust patients to keep therapy will get what you call DOTS which stands for directly observed therapy. That’s a good way of ensuring that the patient is taking therapy because somebody watches the patient swallow the medication. MDR TB is treatable if we catch it early. XDR TB has a very poor prognosis, unfortunately.http://www.thenakedscientists.com/HTML/content/interviews/interview/893/
