TBnet webinar January 2024

Dear Colleagues,
Join us on 25 January at 17:00 (CET)* for the first of our 2024 webinars.

This webinar will focus on primary efficacy and safety results of the MSF-sponsored endTB trial: a Phase III, open-label, randomized controlled trial comparing five nine-months regimen to a concurrent, evolving standard of care arm for rifampicin-resistant tuberculosis. These results have recently been presented at the Union World Conference on Lung Health in Paris, France (November 2023).

*Please note that from 2024 webinars will be held every last Thursday of the month at 17:00 CET (instead of 16:00 CET).
