Dramatic increase of newly developed cases of TB worldwide that are caused by HIV co-infection and resistance to antituberculotic drugs have led the World Health Organization (WHO) declare TB a global threat.

The pharmacological achievements of the century in treatment of tuberculosis were streptomycin and other antituberculotic drugs.
Both strains were chosen due to their resistance to standard antimycobacterial therapy; therefore, isoniazid, pyrazinamide and rifampicin (as first-line antituberculotic drugs), and ciprofloxacin (as an alternative antituberculotic/antimycobacterial drug) [42, 43] were used as standards.
In contrast, as noted above there is a good correlation between the [IC.sub.50] values for the inhibition of MtFabI and the antimycobacterial activity of 1-3, suggesting that these compounds may represent a profitable starting point for the development of novel antituberculotic chemotherapeutics.
