The third episode will focus on the challenges of shortening DS-TB treatment and the results from the U.S. CDC TBTC Study 31 / A5449. In this episode, we address the obstacles that have previously prevented successful identification of shorter treatments for DS-TB and what the results from TBTC Study 31 could mean for future TB treatment.
