Research on improvements in diagnosing and treating tuberculosis
Date:6/19/2012

y. Among infectious diseases, this is the main cause of death among young adults in developing countries, particularly among the poorest ones. It is estimated that there are five million new cases every year throughout the world and that the possibility of being cured is only 60%. The efficacy of programs to fight tuberculosis continues to be burdened by the need to keep patients in treatment for 6 to 24 months. Financing and support for trials are limited.

With its participation in this project, UC3M has joined large-scale research in the area of health science. The project, which began in May of this year and is expected to last for sixty months, is being led by the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline and includes 21 prestigious international partners. The partners who come from private industry are: GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi-Aventis, Janssen, Microsense Medtech and ZF Screens. Partners from the academic world are: the University of Liverpool, UC3M, Max Plank Institute, Erasmus University, Health Protection Agency UK, Institut Pasteur, St Georges University London, University of St Andrews, EPFL, Univ. of Leicester, University College of London, VU University, the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and Uppsala University.
