Scientists Working to Reduce Duration of TB Treatment

Researchers at Epicentre Mbarara in collaboration with St George’s University of London and the INTER-TB Consortium are working to reduce the length of TB treatment from the current six months, to four months under an international study called RIFASHORT Trial.

Dr. Daniel Atwine, the Principal Investigator (PI) of the study at the Ugandan site in Mbarara, said that the study aims at achieving this goal by increasing the dose of Rifampicin, which is the major of the four TB drugs.
