Tuberculosis and Hepatitis

Most healthy people’s immune systems kill or contain TB infection without developing symptoms. Latent TB infection is an asymptomatic and non-transmissible form of TB. Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver. There are 5 main hepatitis viruses, referred to as types A, B, C, D and E. Twin studies of tuberculosis (TB) and chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection identified a strong host genetic component to individual variability in disease susceptibility. Short-course chemotherapy containing rifampicin and isoniazid in combination has proved to be highly effective in the treatment of tuberculosis, but one of its adverse effects is hepatotoxicity. An estimated 49 million lives were saved through TB diagnosis and treatment between 2000 and 2015.
