This topic page summarizes the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommendations on screening for latent tuberculosis infection in adults.
Release Date: 1996
The previous evidence review and recommendation is outdated.
Update in Progress
In an effort to make the USPSTF recommendations clearer and its processes more transparent, the Task Force is sharing drafts of many of its documents for public comment, including draft Research Plans and draft Recommendation Statements. As a result, the final Recommendation Statement is not yet available.
USPSTF members work with researchers from an independent Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC) to create a Research Plan that guides the systematic review of the evidence. The Research Plan consists of an analytic framework, key questions, and a literature search strategy or research approach.
