TBS1A-Role of innate and adaptive immunity in TB and evaluation of immune correlates in pre-clinical and clinical studies: plenary session
*Please scroll down for more information*
In this session recent insights into the host immune response to M. tuberculosis infection will be discussed. The results from a first tuberculosis (TB) biomarker guided clinical trial will be reported and discussed in the context of TB risk and targeted interventions. The role of innate trained immunity will next be reviewed and discussed, including in the context of BCG vaccination. The emerging role of antibodies in TB will be reviewed as well. The three keynote presentations will be followed by the selected abstract presentations and close with an open panel discussion.

TBS2A-TB infection and disease - the details: plenary session
*Please scroll down for more information*
Recent research has suggested that M. tuberculosis can present as more subtle states than just 'latent' infection and active disease. This has relevant diagnostic, preventive, therapeutic, transmission, modelling and economic analyses implications. This session is intended to discuss different implications of the spectrum of tuberculosis infection.

15:00 - 15:03: Introductory note

TBS3A-What is new in drug-resistance detection: plenary session
*Please scroll down for more information*
Multiple active anti-mycobaterial drugs are required to cure tuberculosis. Monotherapy or treatment with insufficient active drugs accelerates the development of mycobacterial resistance resulting in treatment failures and, ultimately, undermining elimination strategies. For this reason, understanding the detailed mechanisms of resistance, as well as interactions between the host and different drugs, is important as it allows in vivo activity to be predicted. This session aims to discuss recent findings with respect to our understanding of anti-mycobacterial drug resistance and the prediction of susceptibility, notably based on genome sequence data.

15:00 - 15:03: Introductory note


15:03 - 15:23: Sequencing to support DR TB treatment decisions: a new landscape of options

TBS4A-Innovations in TB therapeutics: plenary session
*Please scroll down for more information*
Tuberculosis (TB) therapeutics research is experiencing a renaissance with an increasing number of new compounds, innovative tools and strategies undergoing evaluation as part of novel regimen development. This is welcome progress as the field seeks to address the long durations of treatment, toxicities, drug–drug interactions and high costs of current therapies. This session will highlight the potential of therapeutic vaccines, innovative tools for regimen development and genomic discoveries with relevance to development of host-directed therapies for curing TB.

15:00 - 15:03: Introductory note


15:03 - 15:23: Opportunities and risks: using therapeutic TB vaccines to improve cures and shorten treatment for active disease

Gavin Churchyard
