Abstract

In Reply.—  We appreciate the comments of Dr Reichman supporting the conclusions of our article. If prevention of tuberculosis with isoniazid becomes accepted practice again, clinicians will face additional questions: Who should be screened with tuberculin tests? How often? Using which methods? We are currently carrying out further research in these areas and encourage others to do the same.
