Research Project:
1. Time to negative culture in pulmonary tuberculosis, Hennepin County Public Health Clinic, Minneapolis, Minnesota: Culture conversion at two months after starting treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis indicates that short course treatment can be given and has been proposed as an indicator for consideration to decrease further the duration of standard therapy. Some studies of novel treatment regimens indicate that 30% or more of patients do not convert for their sputum cultures to negative after two months of therapy. We examined our experience with pulmonary tuberculosis in 89 consecutive patients over a four year period to see what our culture negativity rate was after two months of treatment. In our study we found that the mean time to negative culture was 29.1 days (SD=26.6),patients that had positive sputum smear tests had significantly longer times to negative culture vs. those with negative smear tests (37.9 days vs. 18.3 days, p=0.001),patients that presented with a cough had significantly longer times to culture than those without a cough (34.3 days vs. 20.2 days, p=0.026),no significant differences were observed by foreign-born status, sex, age or gender and culture negativity at 60 days was achieved in 82% of patients and within 75 days in 96%.
