Updated guidelines target co-infected HIV, TB patients

March 8, 2004

Previously published reports provided clinicians with guidelines for managing pharmacologic interactions that can result from concomitant protease inhibitor (PI) or nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) and rifamycin therapy. A group of CDC scientists and outside expert consultants recently updated the guidelines. The revised guidelines are available at http://www.cdc.gov/nchstp/tb/tb_hiv_drugs/toc.htm.
