TB Alliance in 2017


How do you solve a problem that’s
thousands of years old? To treat the most extreme cases of drug
resistance, you need a totally novel regiment. The vast majority of drugs most
patients are given are probably not helping at all, but they are producing
side-effects. You can go through a whole two-year treatment and still not be cured of XDR-TB. So we tried something new with a better experience for patients. For the vast majority of people you need
to shorten and simplify treatment Looking ahead, you also have to prepare
for future drug resistance. We’ve advanced multiple candidates, each tackles TB in a unique way. And when a new treatment is successful, we work to ensure it gets to the people
who need it most. TV Alliance began with a vision to end
the TB pandemic with improved, faster acting, and affordable treatment because
thousands of years is long enough to wait.
