Because virtually all classes of antibiotics require bacterial replication for their action, the nonreplicating state is thought. Helmuth Reuter, in Tuberculosis, TREATMENT OF PLEURAL TUBERCULOSIS.
The treatment for pleural TB is the same as for smear-positive pulmonary TB, namely directly observed treatment, short-course (DOTS) according to the WHO guidelines. 74 While 6 months of treatment may be sufficient for most patients, each patient must be individually assessed and, where relevant as for example in.

TB treatment is effective. Worldwide, nearly 90% of cases of TB and 48% of cases of drug-resistant TB are cured. However, treatment is not quick or easy.

In the study the researchers compared a nine-month regimen of treatment for to the World Health Organization standard two-year treatment.
The nine-month group had a 78% success rate compared to the 81% success rate for the longer treatment group.
These results are comparable to findings from a similar study conducted in Bangladesh a decade ago.
