A fat-soluble riminophenazine dye used for the treatment of leprosy. It has been used investigationally in combination with other antimycobacterial drugs to treat Mycobacterium avium infections in AIDS patients. Clofazimine also has a marked anti-inflammatory effect and is given to control the leprosy reaction, erythema nodosum leprosum. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1993, p1619)
Substances that suppress Mycobacterium leprae, ameliorate the clinical manifestations of leprosy, and/or reduce the incidence and severity of leprous reactions.
A sulfone active against a wide range of bacteria but mainly employed for its actions against MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE. Its mechanism of action is probably similar to that of the SULFONAMIDES which involves inhibition of folic acid synthesis in susceptible organisms. It is also used with PYRIMETHAMINE in the treatment of malaria. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p157-8)
A form of LEPROSY classified by the World Health Organization for the purpose of treatment, based on clinical manifestations and skin smear results. Patients with multibacillary leprosy have six or more lesions with or without positive skin smear results for the causative agent MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE. Multibacillary leprosy encompasses borderline lepromatous, midborderline, and lepromatous leprosy.
A nontuberculous infection when occurring in humans. It is characterized by pulmonary disease, lymphadenitis in children, and systemic disease in AIDS patients. Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare infection of birds and swine results in tuberculosis.
A complex that includes several strains of M. avium. M. intracellulare is not easily distinguished from M. avium and therefore is included in the complex. These organisms are most frequently found in pulmonary secretions from persons with a tuberculous-like mycobacteriosis. Strains of this complex have also been associated with childhood lymphadenitis and AIDS; M. avium alone causes tuberculosis in a variety of birds and other animals, including pigs.
A chronic granulomatous infection caused by MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE. The granulomatous lesions are manifested in the skin, the mucous membranes, and the peripheral nerves. Two polar or principal types are lepromatous and tuberculoid.
An antitubercular agent that inhibits the transfer of mycolic acids into the cell wall of the tubercle bacillus. It may also inhibit the synthesis of spermidine in mycobacteria. The action is usually bactericidal, and the drug can penetrate human cell membranes to exert its lethal effect. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, p863)
A broad-spectrum antibiotic that is being used as prophylaxis against disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex infection in HIV-positive patients.
A semisynthetic antibiotic produced from Streptomyces mediterranei. It has a broad antibacterial spectrum, including activity against several forms of Mycobacterium. In susceptible organisms it inhibits DNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity by forming a stable complex with the enzyme. It thus suppresses the initiation of RNA synthesis. Rifampin is bactericidal, and acts on both intracellular and extracellular organisms. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1160)
A broad-spectrum antibiotic derived from KANAMYCIN. It is reno- and oto-toxic like the other aminoglycoside antibiotics.
Drugs used in the treatment of tuberculosis. They are divided into two main classes: "first-line" agents, those with the greatest efficacy and acceptable degrees of toxicity used successfully in the great majority of cases; and "second-line" drugs used in drug-resistant cases or those in which some other patient-related condition has compromised the effectiveness of primary therapy.
Semisynthetic derivative of erythromycin. It is concentrated by human phagocytes and is bioactive intracellularly. While the drug is active against a wide spectrum of pathogens, it is particularly effective in the treatment of respiratory and genital tract infections.
An erythematous eruption commonly associated with drug reactions or infection and characterized by inflammatory nodules that are usually tender, multiple, and bilateral. These nodules are located predominantly on the shins with less common occurrence on the thighs and forearms. They undergo characteristic color changes ending in temporary bruise-like areas. This condition usually subsides in 3-6 weeks without scarring or atrophy.
Materials in intermediate state between solid and liquid.
A chronic communicable infection which is a principal or polar form of LEPROSY. This disorder is caused by MYCOBACTERIUM LEPRAE and produces diffuse granulomatous skin lesions in the form of nodules, macules, or papules.

A semisynthetic macrolide antibiotic derived from ERYTHROMYCIN that is active against a variety of microorganisms. It can inhibit PROTEIN SYNTHESIS in BACTERIA by reversibly binding to the 50S ribosomal subunits. This inhibits the translocation of aminoacyl transfer-RNA and prevents peptide chain elongation.
A bacterium causing tuberculosis in domestic fowl and other birds. In pigs, it may cause localized and sometimes disseminated disease. The organism occurs occasionally in sheep and cattle. It should be distinguished from the M. avium complex, which infects primarily humans.
Therapy with two or more separate preparations given for a combined effect.
A disorder consisting of areas of macular depigmentation, commonly on extensor aspects of extremities, on the face or neck, and in skin folds. Age of onset is often in young adulthood and the condition tends to progress gradually with lesions enlarging and extending until a quiescent state is reached.
Irradiation directly from the sun.
That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum immediately below the visible range and extending into the x-ray frequencies. The longer wavelengths (near-UV or biotic or vital rays) are necessary for the endogenous synthesis of vitamin D and are also called antirachitic rays; the shorter, ionizing wavelengths (far-UV or abiotic or extravital rays) are viricidal, bactericidal, mutagenic, and carcinogenic and are used as disinfectants.
Breast neoplasms that do not express ESTROGEN RECEPTORS; PROGESTERONE RECEPTORS; and do not overexpress the NEU RECEPTOR/HER-2 PROTO-ONCOGENE PROTEIN.
Specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, A and B. Both are induced by estrogen and have short half-lives.
Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.
A cell surface protein-tyrosine kinase receptor that is overexpressed in a variety of ADENOCARCINOMAS.

Successful short-term suppression of clarithromycin-resistant Mycobacterium avium complex bacteremia in AIDS. California Collaborative Treatment Group. (1/98)

During a randomized study of clarithromycin plus clofazimine with or without ethambutol in patients with AIDS and Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) bacteremia, eight participants received additional antimycobacterial drugs following the detection of a clarithromycin-resistant isolate (MIC, > 8 micrograms/mL). A macrolide (seven received clarithromycin, one azithromycin) and clofazimine were continued; additional treatment included various combinations of ethambutol, ciprofloxacin, amikacin, and rifabutin. After the detection of a resistant isolate and before receipt of additional antimycobacterials, the median peak MAC colony count in blood was 105 cfu/mL (range, 8-81,500 cfu/mL). After additional antimycobacterials, the median nadir MAC colony count was 5 cfu/mL (range, 0-110 cfu/mL). Five (63%) of eight patients had a > or = 1 log10 decrease, including two who achieved negative blood cultures; all of these responses occurred in patients originally assigned to clarithromycin plus clofazimine. Treatment of clarithromycin-resistant MAC bacteremia that emerges during clarithromycin-based treatment can decrease levels of bacteremia and transiently sterilize blood cultures.  (+info)

Antimycobacterial activities of riminophenazines. (2/98)

Riminophenazines were specifically developed as drugs active against Mycobacterium tuberculosis but extensive research over several decades has shown that these compounds are also active against many other mycobacterial infections, particularly those caused by Mycobacterium leprae and the Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC). Clofazimine, the lead compound in this series, is included in the regimens that are approved by the WHO for the treatment of leprosy and has contributed significantly to the control of that disease, particularly that caused by dapsone-resistant bacteria. Despite early problems, clofazimine has shown clinical efficacy in tuberculosis, in particular that caused by multiple drug resistant strains. Clofazimine does not induce resistance and also inhibits emergence of resistance to isoniazid in M. tuberculosis. The efficacy of clofazimine against MAC is more varied and the availability of better drugs has limited its use. Newer riminophenazines, such as B746 and B4157, not only showed increased anti-mycobacterial activity but also produced less skin pigmentation, which is the main drawback of this group of compounds. The most important virtues of riminophenazines, such as intracellular accumulation in mononuclear phagocytic cells, anti-inflammatory activity, a low incidence of drug resistance and slow metabolic elimination, make them attractive candidates for the treatment of mycobacterial infections. It is essential, however, to investigate the newer analogues clinically, while continuing the pursuit of alternate candidates that demonstrate higher anti-mycobacterial activity and lower rates of skin pigmentation.  (+info)

Effective treatment of acute and chronic murine tuberculosis with liposome-encapsulated clofazimine. (3/98)

The therapeutic efficacy of liposomal clofazimine (L-CLF) was studied in mice infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis Erdman. Groups of mice were treated with either free clofazimine (F-CLF), L-CLF, or empty liposomes twice a week for five treatments beginning on day 1 (acute), day 21 (established), or day 90 (chronic) postinfection. One day after the last treatment, the numbers of CFU of M. tuberculosis in the spleen, liver, and lungs were determined. F-CLF at the maximum tolerated dose of 5 mg/kg of body weight was ineffective; however, 10-fold-higher doses of L-CLF demonstrated a dose response with significant CFU reduction in all tissues without any toxic effects. In acutely infected mice, 50 mg of L-CLF/kg reduced CFU 2 to 3 log units in all three organs. In established or chronic infection, treated mice showed no detectable CFU in the spleen or liver and 1- to 2-log-unit reduction in the lungs. A second series of L-CLF treatments cleared M. tuberculosis in all three tissues. L-CLF appears to be bactericidal in the liver and spleen, which remained negative for M. tuberculosis growth for 2 months. Thus, L-CLF could be useful in the treatment of tuberculosis.  (+info)

A prospective randomized trial of four three-drug regimens in the treatment of disseminated Mycobacterium avium complex disease in AIDS patients: excess mortality associated with high-dose clarithromycin. Terry Beirn Community Programs for Clinical Research on AIDS. (4/98)

The optimal regimen for treatment of Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC) disease has not been established. Eighty-five AIDS patients with disseminated MAC disease were randomized to receive a three-drug regimen of clarithromycin, rifabutin or clofazimine, and ethambutol. Two dosages of clarithromycin, 500 or 1,000 mg twice daily (b.i.d.), were compared. The Data and Safety Monitoring Board recommended discontinuation of the clarithromycin dosage comparison and continuation of the rifabutin vs. clofazimine comparison. After a mean follow-up of 4.5 months, 10 (22%) of 45 patients receiving clarithromycin at 500 mg b.i.d. had died (70 deaths per 100 person-years) compared with 17 (43%) of 40 patients receiving clarithromycin at 1,000 mg b.i.d. (158 deaths per 100 person-years) (relative risk, 2.43; 95% confidence interval, 1.11-5.34; P = .02). After 10.4 months, 20 (49%) of 41 patients receiving rifabutin had died (81 deaths per 100 person-years) compared with 23 (52%) of 44 patients receiving clofazimine (94 deaths per 100 person-years) (relative risk, 1.20; 95% confidence interval, 0.65-2.19; P = .56). Bacteriologic outcomes were similar among treatment groups. In treating MAC disease in AIDS patients, the maximum dose of clarithromycin should be 500 mg b.i.d.  (+info)

Inhibition of potassium transport and growth of mycobacteria exposed to clofazimine and B669 is associated with a calcium-independent increase in microbial phospholipase A2 activity. (5/98)

Altered phospholipase A2 (PLA2) activity and its relationship to cation (K+, Ca2+) uptake and growth were investigated in mycobacteria exposed to the riminophenazine antimicrobial agents, clofazimine and B669 (0.15-2.5 mg/L). Microbial PLA2 activity was measured using a radiometric thin-layer chromatography procedure, whereas K+ and Ca2+ transport were measured using 86Rb+ or 42K+ and 45Ca2+, respectively. Short-term exposure (15-30 min) of Mycobacterium aurum A+ or the virulent and avirulent isolates of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37R to the riminophenazines resulted in dose-related enhancement of microbial PLA2 activity, which was associated with inhibition of K+ influx and growth. Uptake of Ca2+ by mycobacteria was unaffected, or minimally affected, by the riminophenazines at concentrations of < or = 0.6 mg/L, whereas higher concentrations resulted in increased uptake of the cation in the setting of decreased microbial ATP concentrations. The results of kinetic studies using a fixed concentration (2.5 mg/L) of B669 demonstrated that riminophenazine-mediated enhancement of PLA2 activity and inhibition of K+ uptake in mycobacteria are rapid and probably related events that precede, by several minutes, any detectable effects on microbial ATP concentrations and uptake of Ca2+. Inclusion of the extracellular and intracellular Ca2+-chelating agents EGTA (0.2-7.2 g/L) and BAPTA/FURA-2 (0.2-9.5 mg/L), individually or in combination, did not prevent the effects of B669 on mycobacterial PLA2 activity or K+ transport, whereas alpha-tocopherol, which neutralizes PLA2 primary hydrolysis products, antagonized the inhibitory effects of the riminophenazines on microbial K+ uptake and growth. These results demonstrate that the antimycobacterial activities of clofazimine and B669 are related to a Ca2+-independent increase in mycobacterial PLA2, leading to interference with microbial K+ transport.  (+info)

Preparation of a clofazimine nanosuspension for intravenous use and evaluation of its therapeutic efficacy in murine Mycobacterium avium infection. (6/98)

Clofazimine nanosuspensions were produced by high pressure homogenization and the formulation was optimized for lyophilization. Characterization of the product by photon correlation spectroscopy, laser diffraction and Coulter counter analysis showed that the clofazimine nanosuspensions were suitable for iv injection with a particle size permitting passive targeting to the reticuloendothelial system. Following iv administration to mice of either the nanocrystalline or a control liposomal formulation at a dose of 20 mg clofazimine/kg bodyweight, drug concentrations in livers, spleens and lungs reached comparably high concentrations, well in excess of the MIC for most Mycobacterium avium strains. When C57BL/6 mice were experimentally infected with M. avium strain TMC 724, nanocrystalline clofazimine was as effective as liposomal clofazimine in reducing bacterial loads in the liver, spleen and lungs of infected mice. Nanocrystalline suspensions of poorly soluble drugs such as riminophenazines are easy to prepare and to lyophilize for extended storage and represent a promising new drug formulation for intravenous therapy of mycobacterial infections.  (+info)

Activity of a new class of isonicotinoylhydrazones used alone and in combination with isoniazid, rifampicin, ethambutol, para-aminosalicylic acid and clofazimine against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. (7/98)

The activities of six derivatives of a new class of isonicotinoylhydrazones were investigated in vitro against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv ATCC 27294, isoniazid-resistant M. tuberculosis ATCC 35822, rifampicin-resistant ATCC 35838, pyrazinamide-resistant ATCC 35828, streptomycin-resistant ATCC 35820 and 16 clinical isolates of M. tuberculosis. Several compounds showed interesting antimycobacterial activity against both ATCC strains and clinical isolates, but were less active against isoniazid-resistant M. tuberculosis. Combinations of five isonicotinoylhydrazone derivatives and rifampicin, ethambutol, para-aminosalicylic acid, isoniazid and clofazimine were also investigated against M. tuberculosis H37Rv ATCC 27294 and against ATCC drug-resistant strains. Addition of sub-MICs of some isonicotinoylhydrazone derivatives resulted in a four- to 16-fold reduction in MICs of ethambutol, para-aminosalicylic acid and rifampicin with fractional inhibitory concentrations (FICs) ranging between 0.17 and 0.37, suggesting a synergic interaction against M. tuberculosis H37Rv. Increased activity was also observed with other combinations (FICs 0.53-0.75), including isoniazid, and a synergic interaction between one of the isonicotinoylhydrazone derivatives and isoniazid (FIC 0.26) was shown against isoniazid-resistant M. tuberculosis ATCC 35822, whereas no effects were observed on combining the isonicotinoylhydrazones with clofazimine. The ability of isonicotinoylhydrazones to inhibit specifically the growth of M. tuberculosis, the high selectivity index and their ability to enhance the activity of standard antituberculous drugs in vitro indicate that they may serve as promising lead compounds for future drug development for the treatment of M. tuberculosis infections.  (+info)

Oxidative stress increases susceptibility of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to isoniazid. (8/98)

Isoniazid is a first-line antibiotic used in the treatment of infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Isoniazid is a prodrug requiring oxidative activation by the catalase-peroxidase hemoprotein, KatG. Resistance to isoniazid can be obtained by point mutations in the katG gene, with one of the most common being a threonine-for-serine substitution at position 315 (S315T). The S315T mutation is found in more than 50% of isoniazid-resistant clinical isolates and results in an approximately 200-fold increase in the MIC of isoniazid compared to that for M. tuberculosis H37Rv. In the present study we investigated the hypothesis that superoxide plays a role in KatG-mediated isoniazid activation. Plumbagin and clofazimine, compounds capable of generating superoxide anion, resulted in a lower MIC of isoniazid for M. tuberculosis H37Rv and a strain carrying the S315T mutation. These agents did not cause as great of an increase in isoniazid susceptibility in the mutant strain when the susceptibilities were assessed by using the inhibitory concentration that causes a 50% decrease in growth. These results provide evidence that superoxide can play a role in isoniazid activation. Since clofazimine alone has antitubercular activity, the observation of synergism between clofazimine and isoniazid raises the interesting possibility of using both drugs in combination to treat M. tuberculosis infections.  (+info)

Wnt signaling is overactivated in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and several other cancers, and its suppression emerges as an effective anticancer treatment. However, no drugs targeting the Wnt pathway exist on the market nor in advanced clinical trials. Here we provide a comprehensive body of preclinical evidence that an anti-leprotic drug clofazimine is effective against TNBC. Clofazimine specifically inhibits canonical Wnt signaling in a panel of TNBC cells in vitro. In several mouse xenograft models of TNBC, clofazimine efficiently suppresses tumor growth, correlating with in vivo inhibition of the Wnt pathway in the tumors. Clofazimine is well compatible with doxorubicin, exerting additive effects on tumor growth suppression, producing no adverse effects. Its excellent and well-characterized pharmacokinetics profile, lack of serious adverse effects at moderate (yet therapeutically effective) doses, its combinability with cytotoxic therapeutics, and the novel mechanistic mode
Background & Aims: Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis has been proposed as a cause of Crohns disease. We report a prospective, parallel, placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized trial of 2 years of clarithromycin, rifabutin, and clofazimine in active Crohns disease, with a further year of follow-up. Methods: Two hundred thirteen patients were randomized to clarithromycin 750 mg/day, rifabutin 450 mg/day, clofazimine 50 mg/day or placebo, in addition to a 16-week tapering course of prednisolone. Those in remission (Crohns Disease Activity Index ≤150) at week 16 continued their study medications in the maintenance phase of the trial. Primary end points were the proportion of patients experiencing at least 1 relapse at 12, 24, and 36 months. Results: At week 16, there were significantly more subjects in remission in the antibiotic arm (66%) than the placebo arm (50%; P = .02). Of 122 subjects entering the maintenance phase, 39% taking antibiotics experienced at least 1 relapse ...

Abstract A pharmacologic study of clofazimine (B663) was carried out in mice and human subjects to provide information needed for interpretation of data from studies of drug action in the two species. The quantities of B663 in mouse carcasses were measured to determine the half-time of disappearance (t ½) of the drug and the absorption of the drug after oral administration. The antimicrobial activity of orally-administered B663 was studied in mice infected with Mycobacterium leprae and correlated with the quantity of B663 in the carcass. Published studies of the effect of the drug in murine infections with M. leprae and M. tuberculosis were reinterpreted. The t ½ of B663 is about 1 week in male BALB/c mice. The antimicrobial effect of the drug appears to require a concentration in the mouse carcass smaller than 1 mg/kg for M. leprae and greater than 5 to 10 mg/kg for M. tuberculosis. The concentration of B663 was also measured in the plasma, urine and feces of volunteers and leprosy patients. The t ½

Considerable re-pigmentation of vitiliginous skin occurred in 8 White female patients who were treated with clofazimine and exposed to natural sunlight.
A controlled clinical trial of two multidrug regimens in multibacillary lepromatous and near-lepromatous patients with a bacterial index (BI) of 2.5 or more was conducted. Patients were randomly allocated to either a two-drug regimen of dapsone plus clofazimine for 60 months or a four-drug regimen of rifampin, isoniazid, dapsone, and clofazimine for the first 3 months and clofazimine plus dapsone for the next 57 months. There was no difference between the rifampin and nonrifampin regimens with respect to the clinical improvement or bacteriological status of the patients at 60 months. Reactive states and neuritis were observed to be equal in the two patient groups.
Prof Harvey Rubin in his plenary address on Wednesday morning 4 July discussed new findings about the action of clofazimine. This is a standard treatment for leprosy, but through its selective action of starving bacterial cells of energy, it is effective in vitro against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and some other bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus.

Scientists wanted BDQ to work more efficiently against TB, so they looked for a way to fix the problem caused by the efflux pump. They found that when BDQ was given in combination with specific drugs, like efflux pump inhibitors, the amount of the drug needed to fight the bacteria decreased. This is a good thing because you would like to treat the infection with the lowest concentration of drugs possible.. It turns out that the pump mutation worked against the treatment because it caused the pump to move BDQ out of the cell. Efflux inhibitor drugs slow down the efflux of antibiotics like BDQ. As the efflux pump inhibitors slow down the pumps, BDQ is able to finally do its job - to kill the TB cells. Finding out what mutation was affecting BDQ and identifying drugs that solved the problem helped scientists move on to the next step of testing.. The scientists tested a few other drugs to see if they could be used with BDQ to improve its effect on TB. They found that a drug called clofazimine (CFZ) ...

This years Big Schools Birdwatch was the best yet: we had a record number of species but also an amazing amount of enthusiasm amongst the pupils! It was an icy cold day, but the children turned up with coats, hats, scarves and gloves and even binoculars, ready to see what we could find. Once the birdwatch was over we used the results for making graphs in maths, making an information book about the birds we found and presented an assembly to spread the good news!

At this stage the treating physician requested the inclusion of the patient in the delamanid compassionate use programme via the TB Consilium platform; based on DST, the patient had XDR-TB with a single certified active drug, clofazimine. DSTs for ethambutol, pyrazinamide, streptomycin, cycloserine/terizidone and meropenem/clavulanic acid were not available, while all other drugs tested showed resistance. The patient had bilateral upper zone fibrocavitary lesions on chest radiography and poor lung reserve ruling out the possible benefit of surgical resection.. In such a setting, the combination of clofazimine and delamanid without a third (and fourth) active drug may potentially have resulted in delamanid resistance. Given there were no other available drugs to design an effective regimen for this patient, the TB Consilium experts recommended the simultaneous introduction of delamanid and bedaquiline in combination with an optimised background regimen. Therefore, both new drugs were requested ...
Background/Purpose: Primary Sjogrens syndrome (pSS) is a systemic, progressive autoimmune disease characterized by formation of ectopic germinal centers in exocrine glands and secretory gland dysfunction. A subset of patients also develops extraglandular manifestations. CFZ533 is a novel monoclonal antibody that potently and selectively blocks CD40, a co-stimulatory pathway receptor essential for germinal center reactions and other immune mediated functions implicated in pSS pathogenesis. We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multi-centric, partial cross-over Phase IIa Proof of Concept (PoC) study to evaluate the safety, tolerability and efficacy of CFZ533 in patients with pSS.. Methods: Clinically active (EULAR Sjögrens Syndrome Disease Activity Index [ESSDAI]≥6) pSS patients were randomized to receive four doses of 3 mg/kg s.c. CFZ533 or placebo (2:1, Cohort 1) or 10 mg/kg i.v. CFZ533 or placebo (2:1, Cohort 2) over 12 weeks in Period 1. Four additional doses of 3 ...
Leprosy disease remains an important public health issue as it is still endemic in several countries. Mycobacterium leprae, the causative agent of leprosy, presents tropism for cells of the reticuloendothelial and peripheral nervous system. Current multidrug therapy consists of clofazimine, dapsone and rifampicin. Despite significant improvements in leprosy treatment, in most programs, successful completion of the therapy is still sub-optimal. Drug resistance has emerged in some countries. This review discusses the status of leprosy disease worldwide, providing information regarding infectious agents, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, actual treatment and future perspectives and strategies on targets for an efficient targeted delivery therapy.

In an effort to improve treatment outcomes and shorten treatment duration, TB drug research has been aiming at redevelopment of existing first-line TB drugs (high dose rifamycins and pyrazinamide) and repurposing of available antibiotics (e.g. moxifloxacin, linezolid and clofazimine), alongside the development of new compounds (e.g. bedaquiline, delamanid, SQ109).

For bathrooms less than 100 square feet, determine the rooms CFM requirements by measuring and multiplying the length, width and ceiling height of the room, then use the multiplication factor of .13 and round up to the next ten. For example: 10 long x 8 wide x 9 height x .13 = 93.6, select a bath fan with at least 100 CFM. If the bathroom is larger than 100 square feet, www.HVI.org recommends that you add the CFM requirement for each fixture present - a toilet is 50 CFM, a shower is 50 CFM, a bathtub is 50 CFM and a jetted tub is 100 CFM.

Rotoroa Island, off the coast of New Zealand is tiny, at just 82 hectares (200 acres), but dont let its diminutiveness fool you: big things are happening here.

What would happen if you populated an island with a whole suite of endangered species, some of which were never found there to begin with? And what would happen if you didnt fence the island off and keep pesky humans out, but let people - school groups even - tramp through the grounds? ...
