Shorter treatment duration a possibility for pulmonary TB

New data analysis has suggested that a precision medicine approach could lead to significantly shorter treatment periods for some patients with pulmonary tuberculosis.

The study, published recently in Nature Medicine, re-analyzed data from three pivotal TB trials that had failed to show the efficacy of 4-month treatments over the 6-month standard-of-care. The team suggested the failure of the earlier trials was due to all patients being treated the same, regardless of the severity of their infection.
