Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants with Adverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    In China TB is the main co-infected disease of AIDS patients. This study will give the evidence for make the HIV and TB Co-infected Patients therapy tactics of China. At first, the study will prove what is the best time for begin HAART after anti-TB therapy 2 weeks or 8 weeks. And anti-TB and HAART program will also be confirmed in this study. Overall this research will measure the HIV and TB co-infected patients clinical treatment safety and tolerability of China.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Patients long-term survival. [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

The first cohort study is the patients begin HAART after anti-TB therapy 2 weeks,and the second cohort is after 8 weeks begin HAART. Anti-TB therapy program is 2HREZ-4HRifb. And the first line of HAART plan is AZT+3TC+EFV and the second line plan is D4T+3TC+EFV.If begin with HAART and the RIF will change to Rifb.

Detailed Description:
Anti-Tb Therapy: 2HREZ-4HRifb(H:Isoniazid,R:Rifampicin,E:Ethambutol,Z:pyrazinamide,Rifb:Rifabutin) HAART: The first line was Zidovudine(AZT)+Lamivudine(3TC)+Efavirenz(EFV) and the second line is Stavudine(D4T)+3TC+EFV Study group one: after anti-TB therapy 2 weeks begin with High Active Antiretroviral Therapy(HAART); study group two: after anti-TB therapy 8 weeks begin with HAART. If begin with HAART and the H change with Rifb.
