Case Western Reserve to receive $19.7m to study tuberculosis treatment drugs
Date:12/8/2009

ents," says Dr. Johnson, who is also a Professor of International Health. "This CDC contract funds TB researchers at Case Western Reserve to continue our work in conducting clinical trials to improve treatment."

According to the World Health Organization, more than nine million people around the world become sick with TB, and almost one million to two million die each year. In some areas, the disease is epidemic, with hundreds of thousands affected in nations such as China, India, and Vietnam, and in many countries of sub-Saharan Africa.

Tuberculosis is a communicable disease that can be fatal if not treated. TB usually affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body, such as the brain, kidneys, or spine. New, more effective drugs and regimens for persons afflicted with TB are needed since treatment with currently available drugs requires at least six months of therapy. In addition, new drugs are urgently needed to treat patients with multi-(MDR) and extensively drug resistant (XDR)-TB, where TB germs are resistant to two or more of the best drugs currently used to treat the disease.
