PanACEA has a strong history of well conducted clinical trials to evaluate new regimens for the treatment of drug sensitive TB. Our studies range from small two-center early Phase IIA studies through to large-scale Phase III studies in a multitude of sites and countries. At the start of the consortium, separate development programmes were conducted for each of the drugs in our portfolio (at the time moxifloxacin, rifampicin and SQ109). These programmes have since come together with a particular emphasis on regimen development and, introducing the Multi-Arm Multi-Stage (MAMS) study design, has set a new standard in TB combination therapy research, investigating all three drugs in different regimes in one trial. We continue to employ innovative methodology and biomarkers to design more efficient trials and speed the development of new regimens.
