Fixed duration MDT in leprosy and clinical cure
Paramjit Kaur, Gurmohan Singh
Fixed duration multi drug therapy has been found to be very effective in elimination of leprosy from public health point of view. This study was conducted to see its effectiveness so far as 'clinical cure' is concerned. One hundred consecutive patients attending a consultant's clinic were followed till a period of 6 months and 2 years in PB and MB cases of leprosy respectively. Sixty four percent of the total patients had 'clinical cure' at the end of prescribed treatment.
