Please join us to discuss an interesting paper exploring radiological and molecular correlates of TB cure. What does cure mean? Are all bacilli killed? How might the way we define treatment response influence the way we test new drugs and regimens against Mycobacterium tuberculosis?
This month, we will be discussing a paper that attempts to estimate the number of TB cases being managed in the private sector in India.
Paper: Arinaminpathy et al. The number of privately treated tuberculosis cases in India: an estimation from drug sales data. Lancet Infectious Disease, 2016: published online ahead of print.
