Project: Molecular Epidemiology, Host Immune Responses and Genome Based Prediction and Early Identification of MDRTBin High Tuberculosis Burden Settings

Acronym MDR-TBNet (Reference Number: ELAC2015/T08-0940)
Duration 01/01/2017 - 01/01/2020
Project Topic The aim of this proposal is to study hostpathogenfactors in multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDRTB) with theultimate goal of MDRTB prevention and early detection. We will conduct genotypic characterization of MDRTBclinical isolates and study host immune responses in MDRTB compared with drug-susceptible tuberculosispatients (DSTB) from two TB endemic areas.
