Tuberculosis (also known as TB) is a common infection and a major cause of death in children. Effective treatment using a combination of anti-tuberculosis (anti-TB) medications saves lives, but dosages of these medications are not well established in children. Several research studies have shown that the recommended dosages of the anti-TB medications in children do not lead to adequate blood levels to kill the bacteria in some children. This situation may lead to treatment failure and emergence of drug resistance. As a result, the world Health Organization (WHO) recently recommended increased dosages for all the TB medications in children. This study is being conducted to find out if the increased dosages of the anti-TB drugs are safe and lead to adequate drug levels in the blood of children with TB with or without HIV infection.
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
||Pharmacokinetics and Safety of the WHO Recommended Increased Dosages of the First-line Anti-TB Medications in Children With TB and HIV/TB Coinfection
Primary Outcome Measures:
- Descriptive statistics of PK parameters (Cmax, Tmax, AUC0-8h) of rifampin, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and ethambutol in children with TB with and without HIV coinfection [ Time Frame: Week 4 of therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- Frequency of liver enzymes elevations compare to baseline, skin rashes, nausea, vomiting and treatment discontinuation or modifications due to drug side effects in children with TB with and without HIV coinfection [ Time Frame: up to week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
The frequency of each drug side effects between children with TB and children with with HIV/TB confection on standard anti-TB therapy will be compared by chi-square test
- Relationship between genetic polymorphisms of N-acetyltransferase type 2 (NAT2) enzyme and isoniazid plasma Cmax and AUC in Ghanaian children with TB with and without HIV [ Time Frame: Week 4 of therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Genetic effect of each genetic variant on PK parameter will be estimated as odds ratio between carrier and non-carrier for each variant
- Relationship between genetic polymorphisms of SLCO1B1 transporter and rifampin plasma Cmax and AUC in Ghanaian children with TB with and without HIV [ Time Frame: week 4 of therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Genetic effect of each genetic variant on PK parameter will be estimated as odds ratio between carrier and non-carrier for each genetic variant
- Relationship between plasma Cmax and AUC of isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol and pyrazinamide at week 4 of therapy and frequency of anti-TB treatment discontinuation or modification [ Time Frame: up to week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Differences in mean Cmax and AUC of each drug between children who complete 6 months anti-TB therapy and those who require treatment modification due to drug side effects will be compared by t-test or non-parametric test. Note that treatment modification due to drug side effects is as per national TB treatment guidelines but no new interventions are prescribed in this observation study.
- Relationship between NAT2 acelator status, SLCO1B1 genotype status and anti-TB treatment completion, discontinuation or modification [ Time Frame: up to week 24 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Genetic effect of each genetic variant on treatment discontinuation or modification rates will be estimated as odds ratio between carrier and non-carrier for each variant. Note that treatment modification due to drug side effects is as per national TB treatment guidelines but no new interventions are prescribed in this observation study.
- Relationship between body weight, gender, nutritional status and plasma Cmax and AUC of isoniazid, rifampin, ethambutol and pyrazinamide in Ghanaian children with TB with and without HIV [ Time Frame: up to week 4 of therapy ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Appropriate regression model will be used to test correlation between clinical factors and anti-TB drugs PK parameters
