New Initiative Seeks to Expand Clinical Research on Drug-Resistant TB

By on .

One of the biggest problems in combating TB is the lack of new tools–especially new medicines to cure drug-resistant TB.

A new reserach group seeks to help fill that void–it’s called RESIST-TB, for Research Excellence to Stop TB Resistance

Dr.  Robert Horsburgh Jr.,  a professor of epidemiology, biostatistics and medicine at Boston University’s School of Health is on the steering committee.

The group will focus on for drug-resistant tuberculosis and increasing awareness of the drug-resistant TB threat.  You can find a little more info at the group’s temporary website,  at http://resisttb.org. The site is currently under construction, but it should be up May 1st.
