“The @who, their goal for TB is to reduce the incidents by 90% by the year 2035. Right now, rates are dropping at minus 2% a year. They need to be dropping at minus 17% a year in order to reach that goal.
So is there more that can be done Well, in 2012, there was a groundbreaking new partnership that was developed, once again, to try and accelerate a development of even more new TB drugs. This collaboration is called the TB Drug Accelerator. It was started by the Bill and Melinda @gatesfoundation and it includes eight pharmaceutical companies, five universities, and four research institutes and nonprofits. What they are doing, they are screening their libraries to look for compounds that have activity against TB. It’s kind of like having multiple biotechs at multiple sites looking at the problem from many, many different angles.
I really think that that partnership is critical for success. What is the likelihood that if you need a three or four drug regimen that all of those drugs would come from one company So, these companies and these institutes that are participating, they are really putting the patient first. They’re thinking about what is needed to find a solution for these patients in low income countries, and they’re collaborating and they’re sharing research and data at an unprecedented level.”
Dr. Penny Heaton, CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Medical Research Institute, spoke at HUBweek 2018 about the future of science and medicine. She discussed the importance of the TB Drug Accelerator and the level of unprecedented collaboration between the companies and institutes involved in the accelerator. If we are to make a positive impact on the world and the future, we must work together.
