Doctors Without Borders India (DWBI) and the endTB project

Doctors Without Borders India and its partners i.e. Partners In Health (PIH), Interactive Research and Development (IRD), Epicentre, France, Institute of Tropical Medicine, Belgium and the Harvard Medical School have launched two major clinical trials, endTB and endTB-Q which seek to revolutionize treatment for the toughest strains of tuberculosis (TB), the world’s leading infectious disease killer. The goal of these studies is to generate high quality evidence from a highly heterogeneous population that could lead to a change in the global recommendations for the management of MDR-TB.

The endTB trials are multi-country, randomized, controlled, Phase III clinical trial testing five new, all oral, shorter duration regimens compared to the current standard of care. The aim of the trials is to find shorter, less toxic and injection-free treatments for ‘multidrug-resistant TB’ (MDR-TB). The experimental regimens mainly rely on newly approved or repurposed drugs and avoid drugs to which high rates of resistance have been reported in MDR-TB patient populations.

These multi-country trials are being conducted in Georgia, India, Kazakhstan, Lesotho, Pakistan, Peru, South Africa and Vietnam. In India the trials are conducted at Mumbai and Pune sites by Doctors Without Borders India (DWBI) in Partnership with ICMR- National AIDS Research Institute (NARI) and in support with National Tuberculosis Elimination Program (NTEP).
