Early detection of elevated liver function test in drug-resistant tuberculosis with short term therapy and individual therapy

Abstract

Introduction: Tuberculosis (TB) treatment consists of more than one drug to achieve goal treatment. Hepatotoxicity is a form of side effect that causes the termination of TB treatment or regimen changes due to treatment failure, relapse, and drug resistance. Hepatotoxicity may increase the problem, covering more than 7% of all side effects. DILI is also one of the concerns in the treatment of TB. The objective of this study to assess the role of risk factor in the hepatotoxicity during drug-resistant TB treatment and investigate the time of onset hepatotoxicity during drug-resistant TB treatment.

Methods: The research method was retrospective study. Comprehensive demographic and clinical data, management, and outcome were recorded. Patients who were treated with drug-resistant treatment in Dr. Soetomo General Hospital between January 2018 and January 2020 were enrolled. The statistical method used SPSS ver 16.0. A total sample of 129 patients met the inclusion and exclusion criteria.

Results: Prevalence of hepatotoxic side effects was 54 cases. A total of 2 patients occurred hepatotoxicity in the first 2 weeks, and 52 patients developed hepatotoxicity in the late 2 weeks. There was one risk factor influencing the hepatotoxic side effects of drug-resistant Tuberculosis treatment. The history of alcohol consumption the only one risk factor (OR=3,182; 95% Cl=0,120-9,927.

Conclusion: Hepatotoxicity is a common problem among patients during Antituberculosis Treatment, especially on drug-resistant Tuberculosis in our population. Early detection not only reduces the risk of developing hepatic injury but also prevents mortality.
