PreDiCT-TB Partnership

To find the most rapid and reliable ways of identifying the most potent combinations of new drugs and hasten their ability to be used clinically.

PreDiCT-TB Consortium

PreDiCT-TB is a public-private partnership funded by the EU Innovative Medicines Initiative, comprising three major pharmaceutical partners (GSK, Sanofi, and Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson), two biotechnology firms (ZF Screens and Microsens Medtech) and fifteen academic partners headed by the University of Liverpool. The multidisciplinary consortium brings together experts in microbiology, pharmacology, engineering, mathematical modelling, and clinical trials to create a new integrated framework for TB drug development, making optimal use of preclinical information to design the most efficient clinical trials.

PreDiCT-TB aims to overcome disconnects in TB drug development by adopting a fully integrated multidisciplinary approach grounded in pharmacokinetic (PK) – pharmacodynamic (PD) analysis and calibrated by clinical outcomes. By effectively integrating preclinical information into the early clinical phase, the Consortium aims to provide a new framework and tools that will facilitate the transition of the best combinations of drugs to late phase development and maximise their chances of success.
