Denver Public Health receives grant to study TBPublished 11/18/2009

Denver Public Health (DPH) recently received an $8 million, 10-year grant from the Tuberculosis Trials Consortium (TBTC) to continue work on evaluating new treatments for tuberculosis. DPH has been a site in the Consortium for 15 years.
“After nearly 40 years of dormancy, new drug development for TB treatment is reenergized to combat the problems caused by HIV-related TB, and the widespread emergent of drug-resistant TB,” said Bill Burman, M.D., medical director, Denver Public Health Infectious Disease Clinic.
“The new drugs in development promise to revolutionize TB treatment, reducing the time needed to treat drug-susceptible disease to three months or less and improve the treatment of multi-drug resistant disease,” Burman explained.
The Centers for Disease Control established the TBTC for the purpose of conducting clinical trails of new drugs and regimens to treat and prevent TB.  The TBTC is comprised of clinical investigators from academic medical centers, health departments, and the Veterans Administration medical centers.
