The Union/CDC late-breaker session on TB - Saturday 29 October, 10:30-12:00

The 47th Union World Conference on Lung Health and the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are pleased to announce a late-breaker session related to tuberculosis.

The deadline for submissions has now passed and applicants are being notified of the acceptance or rejection of their abstracts.

The late-breaker session will take place on Saturday 29 October, 10:30-12:00. It will consist of six oral presentations of ten minutes each, followed by five minutes of questions. The presentations are selected from abstracts submitted that focus on new, innovative, and significant findings of broad interest which have occurred after 1 April 2016, or for which information has just become available.

The presentations will be drawn from abstracts received on all aspects of TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment research (including basic and clinical science, epidemiology, social, behavioral, and health care delivery).
