HIV and Tuberculosis Co-infection: Treat Early

Tuberculosis (TB) and HIV are 2 of the deadliest diseases worldwide, with TB recently reaching the top of the list in 2014. HIV increases the risk of contracting TB, whereas TB slows CD4 count recovery and hastens HIV progression to AIDS. Approximately 1/3 of the 1.5 million people who died of TB in 2014 were also infected with HIV.
Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine published a clinical review of HIV-related TB in the February 2017 issue of Microbiology Spectrum. They compiled current evidence and summarized recommendations for disease diagnosis, prevention, and treatment.
To decrease TB-related death among patients with HIV, the authors recommend using proper prevention and treatment techniques in practice. To control the growth of the disease, providers must also make an effort to extend resources to impoverished populations with little access to care.
