TB treatment consortium PanACEA2 held second annual meeting
The EDCTP-funded PanACEA2 consortium held its second annual meeting in Cape Town, South Africa from 28 February to 1 March 2018. Over the next five years, the consortium plans to use novel trial designs to accelerate the development of new anti-tuberculosis drug regimens. Three clinical trials will be conducted to optimise existing drugs and evaluate novel agents, with the aim of testing combination regimens that will shorten and simplify TB treatment. EDCTP Senior Project Officer Dr Monique Rijks-Surette participated in the programme.
