TRIAL DESCRIPTION
Public title PREDINAM
Official scientific title TBscore (and suPAR) used to PREDict and INtervene Against high Mortality (PREDINAM) - a randomised trial
Brief summary describing the background
and objectives of the trial
It is hypothesised that food supplementation for pulmonary TB will lower mortality although the evidence hitherto is inconclusive. Thus further, well powered studies are needed to collect evidence that food supplementation is beneficial for patients suspected of having TB. We aim to identify the prevalence of malnutrition in pulmonary TB suspects, pulmonary TB patients, and healthy controls and to evaluate the use of a standardized nutritional support to lower mortality in PTB suspects.
