As TB grows more difficult to control, vaccine candidate to prevent disease enters clinical testing


, : As TB grows more difficult to control, vaccine candidate to prevent disease enters clinical testing.

Aeras and the Infectious Disease Research Institute (IDRI) announce today the start of the first clinical trial of IDRI's novel tuberculosis vaccine candidate. The Phase I clinical trial will assess the safety, tolerability and immunogenicity of the vaccine candidate. The study will be conducted by Johnson County Clin-Trials in Lenexa, Kansas. Tuberculosis, which kills more people than any other infectious disease except HIV, has orphaned 10 million children, and costs the global economy an estimated one billion dollars every day.
