Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To assess the impact of iron loading on the activity of isoniazid and ethambutol in the treatment of murine tuberculosis. DESIGN: Iron-loaded and iron-normal female Balb/C mice infected with 1.5 × 107 colony forming units of Mycobacterium tuberculosis were treated with either isoniazid or ethambutol for 28 days. RESULTS: For both treatments, the outcome was impaired by the iron loading: bactericidal activity of isoniazid was partially but significantly reduced and ethambutol bactericidal activity was totally inhibited. CONCLUSION: The treatment of tuberculosis in patients with iron loading should be longer than for normal patients or should contain an additional drug.
