Established in 1980, the MIC has answered over 200 000 queries from health care workers and we’ve done it well. During this time, the centre has been funded by a range of generous funders. Our current funding, kind favour of the Global Fund and Western Cape Department of Health ends in March 2019, so we’re on the hunt for more generous funders. Please, if you are one of those, or you know of anyone/any organisation that is, let us know.
We’re proud to announce our latest publication.
Molloy and colleagues in the ACTA trial study team published their results in the New England Journal of Medicine recently. They report that induction therapy for cryptococcal meningitis in the form of amphotericin B and flucytosine for one week, followed by fluconazole plus flucytosine for two weeks was effective in resource-limited settings.
Ning and colleagues recently published their research in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. Their study looked at reducing the dose of olanzapine or risperidone in stable schizophrenic patients and the effect on cognitive function and symptoms.
