What is IMPAACT 2020?

IMPAACT 2020 is a Phase III, two-arm, partially randomized, open-label study of HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected children less than 15 years of age with confirmed or probable multidrug-resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) or rifampin mono-resistant (RMR)-TB. The study is designed to compare the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of an all-oral, six-month regimen to an injectable/oral, nine- to twelve-month World Health Organization (WHO) recommended regimen for MDR-TB or RMR-TB-infected children less than 15 years of age.
