U.S. Government funded research brings shorter TB treatment regimens to New York City

May 16, 2022 – We applaud the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DoHMH) for its leadership as one of the first TB programs in the U.S. and globally to introduce a new four-month regimen for the treatment of drug-susceptible tuberculosis (TB). This new regimen represents a long-awaited breakthrough, offering a shorter alternative to the six-to-nine-month treatment in use since the 1980s. That the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is moving forward to make this regimen available to patients will make treatment more tolerable for people living with TB. As TB survivor and activist Kate O’Brien of We Are TB and co-chair of the TB Roundtable put it, “TB treatment can be such a miserable experience, with all sorts of side effects and logistical complications. Shorter regimens offer patients welcome relief and I’m thrilled to see important government investments delivering better cures for TB.”
