From the desk of Dr. Barry A. Bunin – CEO, Collaborative Drug Discovery (CDD):
Raise awareness, overcome resistance, shorten treatment, optimize drugs to minimize the future human toll from Tuberculosis this World TB Day 2012. I wish it were not true, but unfortunately, last year’s blog on World TB Day 2011 by Dr. Sean Ekins is still relevant today: https://www.collaborativedrug.com/buzz/2011/03/24/world-tb-day-2011/
1 in 3 people still have TB, the treatment is still 6 months, and better treatments are desperately needed. Hopefully by next year, we will have evolved faster than the bacteria.
Collaboration is the key!

P.P.S. And since an image is worth 1000 words, especially with an image of lungs infected with TB: https://www.collaborativedrug.com/buzz/2009/03/20/we-must-stop-tuberculosis-at-all-costs-acknowledge-the-efforts-on-tb-day/
Please advocate for greater funding and collaborate on new ideas in this space.
