Abstract

In this issue of the European Respiratory Journal, Law et al summarise, in their systematic literature review, the evidence for measures that minimise loss to follow-up during treatment of drug-resistant TB in adults. The synthesis of results suggests that supplementing standard care with psychosocial, educational or material support decreased loss to follow-up (defined as treatment interruption of two or more months). The greatest effect was seen when daily home visits were combined with directly observed therapy (DOT).
