The purpose of these contracts is to support ongoing clinical research activities for TBTC studies 31 and 37 in the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of tuberculosis (TB) throughout the one-year performance period 2019 -2020. TBTC Study 31 titled, "Rifapentine-containing treatment shortening regimens for pulmonary tuberculosis: A randomized, open-label, controlled phase 3 clinical trial". The primary objectives of this study are to evaluate the efficacy of a rifapentine-containing regimen 1) to determine whether the single substitution of rifapentine for rifampin makes it possible to reduce to seventeen weeks the duration of treatment for drug-susceptible pulmonary tuberculosis, 2) that in addition substitutes moxifloxacin for ethambutol and continues moxifloxacin during the continuation phase to determine whether it is possible to reduce to seventeen weeks the duration of treatment for drug-susceptible pulmonary tuberculosis. TBTC Study 37 titled, "Six weeks of daily rifapentine vs. a comparator arm of 12-16 week rifamycin-based treatment of latent M. tuberculosis infection: assessment of safety, tolerability and effectiveness (ASTERoiD)." The primary objectives of this open-label Phase III clinical trial are to compare the safety and effectiveness of a six week regimen of daily rifapentine (6wP, the experimental arm) with a comparator arm of 12-16 weeks of rifamycin-based treatment of latent M. tuberculosis infection (LTBI). The latter will be the local standard of care rifamycin-based regimen. This trial will be conducted among persons with LTBI living in low to moderate tuberculosis (TB) incidence settings who are at increased risk of progression to TB and require treatment of LTBI.
