Watch for Latent Tuberculosis Meds During Transitions of Care

Latent tuberculosis (TB) meds require close scrutiny during care transitions...due to extended treatment durations and side effects.

Expect more use of shorter regimens, such as rifampin daily for 4 months...or isoniazid plus rifapentine (Priftin) once weekly for 12 doses.

These regimens have higher completion rates and are as effective as isoniazid daily or twice weekly for 6 or 9 months.
