Sputum culture conversion among patients with tuberculosis (TB) is the most important indicator for the effectiveness of treatment and the infectivity of the disease. We sought to investigate predictors for documented sputum culture conversion among TB cases reported in the surveillance system. Methods: This study included 780 patients with pulmonary TB who were initially sputum culture positive in New Jersey in 1994-1995. These patients were followed up for at least 1 week and up to 1 year.doi:10.1001/archinte.159.10.1110 pmid:10335689 fatcat:qvu6wgivdjhnbhhrs4v5wwwybu
