Illustration of Mycobacterium tuberculosis

This line graph shows the TB rates in the United States between 1982 and 2017. There was a resurgence of TB in the mid-1980s with several years of increasing case counts until its peak in 1992. In 1993, case counts began decreasing again. While overall rates have declined since the peak, the decline has slowed significantly from 2012-2017. This slow progress threatens the realization of TB elimination in this century.

TB Rates in the United States, 1982-2017

This bar chart shows trends in the number of reported TB cases in the US from 1992 to 2017. Starting with the peak of a resurgence of the disease in 1992, the chart shows a decline in the number of TB cases reported every year from 1992 to 2014, with a slight uptick in cases in 2015 (9,547). Preliminary 2017 data and analysis of trends indicate slight declines in TB cases. A magnified view of 2012 to 2017 shows the slow progress of declines.

CDC Releases Updated Recommendations for Treatment of Latent TB Infection – June 28, 2018

CDC released updated recommendations for use of once-weekly isoniazid-rifapentine for 12 weeks (3HP) for treatment of latent TB infection. The updated recommendations support expanded use of an effective, shorter, treatment regimen to reach even more people with latent TB infection.

This graphic is summarizes CDC’s updated recommendations for the use of the short-course combination regimen of once-weekly isoniazid-rifapentine for 12 weeks (3HP) for treatment of latent tuberculosis (TB) infection. The updated recommendations include the use of 3HP: 1)In children and adolescents, 2-11 years old 2) In persons with latent TB infection who are living with HIV/AIDS and taking antiretroviral medications with acceptable drug interactions with rifapentine, and 3) by directly observed therapy or self-administered therapy in persons over 2 years of age.

Tuberculosis Continues to Decline in the U.S. but Progress Towards Elimination Is Slowing – March 22, 2018

Preliminary data show that while TB case counts reached a record low in 2017, the rate of decline is too slow to eliminate TB during this century.

This bar chart shows trends in the number of reported TB cases in the US from 1992 to 2017. Starting with the peak of a resurgence of the disease in 1992, the chart shows a decline in the number of TB cases reported every year from 1992 to 2014, with a slight uptick in cases in 2015 (9,547). Preliminary 2017 data and analysis of trends indicate slight declines in TB cases. A magnified view of 2012 to 2017 shows the slow progress of declines.

Latest Analysis of TB Trends in the U.S. Indicates Progress Is Slow – March 23, 2017

Preliminary 2016 data of tuberculosis cases in the United States indicates progress is too slow to eliminate TB in this century.

This line graph shows the rates of TB in the United States between 1982 and 2016. Preliminary data for 2016 indicate a slightly decreased TB rate (2.9) compared to 2015 (3.0). There was a resurgence of TB in the mid-1980s with several years of increasing rates until its peak in 1992. While overall rates have declined since the peak, the decline has slowed significantly in recent years. This slow progress threatens the realization of TB elimination during this century.

The Costly Burden of Drug-Resistant TB in the U.S. - November 2017

Multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis is a major health threat globally. Nearly half a million MDR TB cases are estimated to occur worldwide annually, including cases that are extensively drug-resistant (XDR).

Preventing and Controlling MDR and XDR TB in the U.S.

There is a major human cost for those treated for drug-resistant TB. 9 percent of those treated for drug-resistant TB die during treatment, 27 percent stop working, 73 percent are hospitalized, and 37 percent require home isolation.

A Major Human Cost

Severe side effects are associated with treatment for drug-resistant TB. 19 percent report depression/psychosis, 13 percent report hearing impairment, 13 percent report hepatitis, 11 percent report kidney impairment, 8% report loss of mobility, 7 percent report vision impairment, and 1 percent report seizures.
