Anti-mycobacterial compositions and their use for the treatment of tuberculosis and related diseases (1)
This invention comprises a number of novel anti-mycobacterial compositions, which offer to significantly improve the treatment of mycobacterial infection such as tuberculosis. These newly discovered anti-mycobacterial compounds, which are analogs of thiatetracosanoate, have been shown effective in the treatment of mycobacterial infections and are relatively nontoxic. They may be given alone or in combination with standard anti-mycobacterial drugs and are valuable as antiseptics as well as therapeutics.
