The development of drug-resistant tuberculosis is causing <br />worldwide concern. Globally in 2019, almost half a million TB sufferers of which 78% had MDR-TB. In recent years, <br />MDR-TB patients increased by 10% from 186,883 patients in 2018 to 206,030 in 2019. Bedaquiline has been <br />recommended by WHO guidelines. Studies related to the effectiveness and safety of Bedaquiline are still few so that <br />there is a need for qualified information to prepare a country, especially Indonesia, for the use of Bedaquiline therapy, <br />especially since Indonesia is ranked second out of two-thirds of the total global TB. Objective: to describe the <br />effectiveness and safety of Bedaquiline in combination therapy for the treatment of MDR-TB. Methods: The literature <br />search was carried out independently by researchers using the online databases of Science Direct, Pubmed, and <br />Cochrane without restrictions on the type of research and year of publication. The keywords used in this study were <br />combined with Boolean operators, namely “bedaquiline” AND “tuberculosis” AND “multi-drug resistant”. Results: <br />Seven studies met the inclusion criteria, the intervention of giving Bedaquiline for 24 weeks can reduce the average <br />time of culture conversion by about 60-85 days. The percentage of culture conversion rate was higher with Bedaquiline <br />(range 70-85%) than placebo (58%). The most common side effects are nausea and hyperuricemia. The majority of <br />studies report a prolongation of the QT interval in patients treated with Bedaquiline. Conclusion: This systematic <br />review showed that Bedaquiline is effective and safe to use in the treatment of MDR-TB. However, serious side effects <br />of QT prolongation occurred in some respondents treated with Bedaquiline. Further studies need to be conducted to <br />monitor the side effects of QT prolongation associated with the administration of Bedaquiline in the treatment of <br />MDR-TB.</p> I Gusti Agung Ari Kusuma Yana Copyright (c) 2022 Pharmaceutical Journal of Indonesia;jurisdiction=&amp;version=4.0&amp;lang=en Thu, 30 Jun 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Analisis Kinerja Instalasi Farmasi RSU Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang dengan Pendekatan Balanced Scorecard <p>The Pharmacy Installation of the University of Muhammadiyah Malang Hospital has never conducted a performance <br />measurement so it is not known how far the management has succeeded in achieving the organization's vision and goals.
