Tuberculosis (TB) is a terrible disease. Although there are first line and second line TB drugs, new medicines are urgently needed given both constantly emerging resistance, as well as the lengthy half-year regimens required for treatment.
An innovative collaboration going by the acronym TBDA (TB Drug Accelerator) is presented by AbbVie Distinguished Research Fellow Dr. Dale Kempf and Weill Cornell Medicine Associate Professor Dr. Ben Gold, moderated by the Gates Foundation Senior Program Officer Dr. Peter Warner. The TBDA brings together 7 major biopharmaceutical companies with leading academic, non-profit and government researchers to “identify new ways to target bacteria that are resistant to current drug regimens, develop new tools for drug discovery, and discover new drugs that can lead to accelerated treatments.”
