Repository of Publications
Curated Compilation of All Medical Publications related to the field of Ocular Tuberculosis. The researchers can review and comment on the publications and start a dialogue on this interactive research platform.
COTS Repository (Restricted)
Centralized encrypted Database of Ocular TB Patients to track and record Treatment provided and patient progress over the course of treatment. The repository will allow to upload deidentified data and images and will also allow researchers to update the real time progress and the panelist can be selectively allowed access to discuss the treatment strategy based on request of primary physician
Ocular Tuberculosis Study (COTS)-1 addressed the knowledge deficits through collaboration amongst uveitis specialists across the globe by sharing the data of patients with ocular TB
COTS Con was an international, expert-led consensus initiative by COTS to develop systematic, evidence and experience based recommendations for the treatment of ocular tuberculosis based on the conundrum in diagnosis and management of ocular TB using smart online survey questionnaire.
To standardize a nomenclature system for defining clinical phenotypes, and outcome measures for reporting clinical and research data in patients with ocular tuberculosis.
AI & ML
A clinical decision support system will be developed based on results obtained using COTS-1, COTS Con and COTS repository for better patient care and predicting outcome in patients with ocular tuberculosis
