Vanderbilt Tuberculosis Center
Findings from the Caribbean, Central and South America Network for HIV Epidemiology (CCASAnet) were presented this week at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI) in Seattle. Among people with HIV in Latin America, those diagnosed with tuberculosis (TB) at an initial clinic visit were about twice as likely to die within 10 years as people not initially diagnosed with TB. This increased risk persisted despite the availability of TB treatment and mirrored patterns seen previously in HIV-negative populations. VUMC investigators Timothy Sterling, Bryan Shepherd, Catherine McGowan, and Ahra Kim were co-authors on this abstract. VUMC is the coordinating center for CCASAnet.
