Sentinel Project, (2013)


Therapy for MDR-TB is extremely long, complex and burdensome to both patients and health care systems. A single diagnosis can require two years of treatment, or longer. When treating children, there are significant additional barriers treating children with MDR-TB. There is limited data on the pharmacokinetics of second-line TB drugs in children, and almost none are in child-friendly formulations. Nonetheless, there is continued work on second-line drugs to fight MDR-TB. The Sentinel Project has created a complex set of dosing recommendations for administering second-line drugs to children
