Dr MS Kanwar, senior consultant, respiratory medicine at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, joined IBNLive readers for an interaction on why India is not being able to curb the incidence of TB cases.
Q. How bad is the situation MDR-TB and is there any possible cure coming in the near future? Asked by: ketan72
A. MDR-TB situation is getting worse in India. It is difficult to treat because of increased number of drugs and the relatively high toxicity of those combinations. We still cure them with fairly good success if the patient is able to tolerate the drugs for long enough time.
