The purpose of this study is to determine of once identified to the subjects infected with human immunodeficiency virus (positive VIH), to diagnose latent Tuberculosis, and to treat her with isoniazid for six months, measuring the production of Interferon range pre and posttreatment, to evaluate this way the result of the treatment on the immune response
A descriptive analysis of the data will be made. Means and standard deviations for continuous data frequencies for categorical data will be performed. Wilcoxon test Mann-Whitney U test Chi square will be used for frequency analysis of responders Data Analysis and Statistical Software(STATA).
