BioBank for Surrogate Marker Research for TB (B-SMART)

Project no.: A5302

This protocol serves two purposes:

  1. To collect and store relevant biological specimens for repository biobanking to be used to characterize and evaluate candidate biomarkers of tuberculosis (TB) treatment response
  2. To outline the initial laboratory pilot projects, as described in the appended New Work Concept Sheet (NWCS), that will use the specimens to further characterize the candidate biomarkers to be evaluated
