Treatment Challenges

A new paradigm for TB drug development is needed—one that focuses on developing not just drugs but entire drug regimens.

The Critical Path to TB Drug Regimens (CPTR) works to tackle the challenges facing TB drug development. This includes gaining support for a paradigm of drug development that enables promising combinations of drugs to be tested and developed together to create entirely new multi-drug treatments.

CPTR is made possible by unprecedented collaboration among pharma companies and strong commitments from public and private partners around the world. More >
