a new WEEKLY regimen for latent tuberculosis

You'll hear about a new WEEKLY regimen for latent tuberculosis.

Patients with a recent positive TB test usually get isoniazid (INH) DAILY for 9 months to prevent an active infection.

A new alternative is INH plus rifapentine (Priftin) once a WEEK for only 12 weeks. This works as well as daily INH and causes less hepatoxicity...BUT stopping drugs early can lead to resistant TB.
