Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Patients were enrolled on the KDHTB study from 2013-2016. UCT FHS Human Research Ethics Committee reference number: 057/2013. We followed patients for 12 weeks to ascertain vital status and compared patients who died to those who survived. We included n=576 patients with tuberculosis in the main analysis. We performed 27-plex luminex analysis on a randomly selected subset of n=507 patients and tgfb-1 ELISA testing. This dataset contains the luminex fluorescence index values and the tgfb-1 values and 12 week outcome status. Each row represents a patient, except the first row which is variable names.
