Abstract

C57BL/6 mice were pretreated with rifabutin or clarithromycin alone or combined with minocycline 3 days before intravenous challenge (day 0) with Mycobacterium avium. Treatment was continued until sacrifice at days 1, 8, 15, and 21. Rifabutin or clarithromycin decreased the level of infection in both the lungs and the spleen. Rifabutin was as effective as clarithromycin in the lungs but was more effective in the spleen. The clarithromycin- minocycline combination was as effective as clarithromycin alone.
