NICE publishes new guideline to better tackle tuberculosis

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)of England has published guidance to better treat and prevent tuberculosis (TB).Effective management of TB is dependent on close working between hospital, community and voluntary organizations. To recognize this, the new NICE guidance combines clinical advice and public health guidance for the first time.The new NICE guideline focuses on prevention and education. It highlights the need to search out active cases in the communities most at risk. It also recommends that the treatment of latent TB be extended from people aged 35 years-and-under to 65 years-and-under. A course of medication for latent TB is shorter, easier to stick to and cheaper than the subsequent treatment required should the disease become active and infectious.
