Improving Diagnosis of Tuberculosis in HIV Infected Children in Asia (Cambodia, Vietnam)and Africa (Burkina Faso, Cameroon)
Improving Diagnosis of Tuberculosis in HIV Infected Children in Asia (Cambodia, Vietnam) and Africa (Burkina Faso, Cameroon) ANRS 12229 PAANTHER 01 (Pediatric Asian African Network for Tuberculosis and HIV Research)

Childhood tuberculosis (TB) accounts for 11% of the total 9 million annual TB cases and the difficulty of its diagnosis is increased in case of HIV infection in children.

The aim of this study is to improve the TB diagnosis in HIV-infected children by developing a new diagnostic algorithm incorporating new tools available such as:

  • interferon gamma release assays (IGRAs), as alternative to the tuberculin skin test. The IGRAs are immunology test measuring the secretion of interferon-gamma by lymphocytes activated by specific Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex antigens
  • alternative specimen collection methods such as string test (or Enterotest (R)), nasopharyngeal aspirates and stools samples, as alternatives to gastric aspirate

Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Diagnostic
  • HIV
  • Tuberculosis
  • Pediatric
Other: Development of a diagnosis algorithm

At entry in the study, HIV infected children with suspected tuberculosis will undergo a complete evaluation including:

  • interview on anamnesis
  • clinical examination
  • evaluation of HIV infection stage

    -Laboratory analysis:

  • hematology and biochemistry tests
  • CD4 cells count
  • HIV viral load
  • Interferon Gamma Release Assay

    -Radiology:

  • chest radiograph
  • Abdominal ultrasonograph to detect abdominal lymphadenopathy

    • Tuberculin skin test
    • Bacteriological specimen collection:
  • gastric aspirates, sputum and string tests according to the age of children
  • nasopharyngeal aspirate
  • stool sample
  • lymph node fine needle aspirate or other specimen collection if applicable

Diagnosis and treatment will be done according to national guidelines. The children will be followed-up for 6 months until the end of their anti-tuberculosis treatment.
