Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is a form of tuberculosis that occurs due to a strain of Mycobacterium tuberculosis that is resistant to at least isoniazid and rifampicin with or without any other first-line antitubercular
2 mL was inoculated into four tubes of Lowenstein-Jensen (LJ) medium each, containing potassium nitrate (1000 [micro]g/mL) & antitubercular
drugs of specific concentration.
Sputum smear-negative tuberculosis was diagnosed on the basis of clinical symptomatology, chest X-ray findings, raised ESR and response to antitubercular
Common drugs associated are cotrimoxazole, nevirapine and antitubercular
As per the RNTCP guidelines, category I antitubercular
treatment was started.
Treatment: Patients with TB pleural effusion were treated with Antitubercular
Definite clinical and radiological improvement in 6 to 8 weeks after administration of antitubercular
This study included adults diagnosed and referred by collaborating department of treated pulmonary TB patients having completed Category I full course of antitubercular
In these cases, MDR-TB shows additional resistance to the second-line antitubercular
She has been diagnosed with pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and been on antitubercular
treatment for over a month.

therapy on nevirapine plasma concentrations in South African adults with HIV-associated tuberculosis.
Biochemical studies on the plant methanolic, hexane and aqueous extracts show the presence of the quinoline alkaloid lunacridine to be effective against tropical ulcers , antitubercular
 and antibacterial activity [17,18], graveolinine, 4-methoxy-2-phenylquinoline and kokusagine for antituberculosis activity , lunacridine and its trifluoroacetyl derivative for DNA intercalation, topoisomerase II decatenation, cytotoxicity and caspase activation activities  and Cytochrome P450 2D6 inhibitory effect .
