Abstract

We recently reported that in lung tissue, thioridazine accumulates at high concentrations relative to serum levels, displaying modest synergy with isoniazid and reducing the emergence of isoniazid-resistant mutants in mouse lungs. In this study, we sought to investigate the sterilizing activity of human-equivalent doses of thioridazine when given in combination with the "Denver regimen" against acute murine tuberculosis. We found a trend toward a positive impact of thioridazine on the bacterial clearance and lowering relapse rates of the combined standard TB chemotherapy.
