15:00 - 15:05: Introduction

15:05 - 15:13: OA-40-742-24-Comorbidities and all-cause mortality post-TB treatment: a retrospective cohort study of patients previously treated with second line TB drugs in Georgia Emerging evidence suggests that patients formerly treated for tuberculosis (TB) are likely to be at increased risk of morbidity and mortality post-TB. Our study found that post-TB mortality rates were higher among TB survivors with pre-existing comorbidities, including hyperglycemia (i.e.diabetes/pre-diabetes), hepatitis C virus, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infection.

15:13 - 15:21: OA-40-743-24-TB Sequel project: characteristics of a TB cohort at treatment initiation in four African countries Tuberculosis (TB) is a global health emergency with little known about the long-term sequelae. The TB Sequel cohort aims to describe lung outcomes in African patients. This abstract presents the description of the characteristics of TB patients enroled into the study.

15:21 - 15:29: OA-40-744-24-Lung function post-TB in Malawian adults: a three-year cohort study We followed-up patients three years from complication of tuberculosis (TB) treatment and reviewed patient outcomes including lung function, healthcare-seeking, symptoms and clinical observation. We concluded that, for a subset of the population, post-TB lung disease is a significant consequence of pulmonary TB.

Rebecca Nightingale

15:29 - 15:37: OA-40-745-24-Risk factors associated with recurrent TB: a systematic review and meta-analysis Recurrent tuberculosis (TB) frequency and proportion of re-infections and relapses, vary in different settings. We performed a systematic review and meta-analysis of risk factors associated to recurrent TB, relapses and reinfections among literature since 1980. 

Victor Vega

15:37 - 15:45: OA-40-746-24-Systematic review and meta-analysis of the association between recurrent TB and HIV infection Tuberculosis (TB) patients with HIV infection may be at a higher risk of recurrent TB than HIV-negative ones. We aimed to review the frequency of recurrent TB and the risk of developing recurrent TB, exogenous reinfection and relapse, according to HIV status among literature since 1980.
