Date:8/2/2013

Beijing, China/Rockville, MD, USAAugust 2, 2013 With the global tuberculosis epidemic becoming more deadly, costly, and difficult to treat, Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (China CDC) and Aeras today signed a memorandum of understanding to advance research and development of new tuberculosis vaccines.

"Innovation is the key to controlling and ultimately eliminating this disease," said Dr. Wang Yu, China CDC Director General. "And we have embraced innovation in our TB control efforts in China.
