Abstract:

It is possible to cure tuberculosis, but it is extremely difficult. The only drugs that can kill the TB bacteria are toxic, can damage the liver and cause deafness. A new drug is being developed which employs a new mode of action to kill the TB bacteria, by targeting an energy- producing enzyme. It is the first drug in 50 years to be able to do this. The TMC 207 drug, developed in Belgium, is effective against all the current strains of TB including the drug-resistant ones and reduces treatment times.
