About This Event

In her talk, Christina Maier presents her evaluation of the follow-up of MDR-TB patients at the Research Center Borstel as a national referral center : Multidrug-resistant TB is on the rise worldwide, the therapy is lenghty, expensive, and has many side effects. However, long-term therapy results are not available in Germany. In her evaluation, Christina Maier collected demographic data, factors influencing therapy outcome, epidemiological ,microbiological, and molecular biology data of MDR-TB patients, to evaluate long-termtherapy outcomes and to find out which factors have a favorable or unfavorable impact on therapy outcome.
