For World TB Day, this episode explores the global burden of tuberculosis (TB) and how growing antibiotic resistance can complicate treatment options. Andrew Nunn, a Professor of Epidemiology, discusses his work on the STREAM2 trial, which investigated how treatment for multi-drug resistant TB could be shortened and made more acceptable for patients. Further information is available on the STREAM Stage 2 study page at www.mrcctu.ac.uk and results from STREAM2 are published open access in The Lancet.
