History of Changes


The purpose of this study is to determine if a relationship exists between the level of antituberculosis drugs (isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol, and pyrazinamide) in the blood and the outcome of HIV-positive patients with tuberculosis. This study also evaluates how these drugs are absorbed and metabolized in the body.
