  Purpose

During the Study:

  • Subject is required to visit every week for the first 2 months and then every month till completion of study or as and when required
  • The usual symptomatic and supportive treatment of Chronic Liver Disease, including use of antiviral, will be given to all patients.
  • Effort will be made to avoid use of other hepatotoxic drug(s) during Anti-Tubercular Treatment.
  • Liver function tests (LFT) will be done weekly during first 2 months then at one month interval or as when required.
  • The treatment efficacy of Anti-Tubercular Treatment (ATT) will be made on the basis of clinical, biochemical, microbiological and imaging parameters at months 2, 4, 7 and 9. Patients not improving at 4 weeks after initiation of treatment will be shifted to alternative regimens and will be excluded from the study.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Successful completion of modified ATT (ANTI TUBERCULAR TREATMENT) regimen. [ Time Frame: 6 and 9 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
