20 tuberculosis (12 slow-responders and 8 fast responders) patients were treated with directly observed short course anti-tuberculosis chemotherapy. Chest X-ray was performed. sICAM-1 and suPAR were measured in serum by ELISA, TNFRs using the luminex technology. General discrimination analysis on selected analytes gave, 91.66% and 87,50% correctly classify fast responders and slow responder respectively. The support vector machine analysis gave 100% correct classification.
