Pharmacokinetic Interaction Study in Indonesian Tuberculosis Patients Indonesia

Summary

Pharmacokinetic study in TB patients to determine the effect of rifampicin on the pharmacokinetic profile of moxifloxacin.

Description

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that still causes many victims in the developing world, especially in Indonesia. Rifampicin, isoniazid and ethambutol are the cornerstone of the current treatment. The disadvantage of the current treatment is the long, six-months, duration of the treatment. This long duration contributes to suboptimal adherence to the TB drugs.Thus, there is a very urgent need to evaluate drugs that may help shortening TB treatment. The fluoroquinolone moxifloxacin has shown early bactericidal activity (EBA) in patients with pulmonary TB, and has shown rapid and reliable sterilization. Rifampicin is a strong inducer of the CYP enzymes, but it also induces phase II metabolism. As moxifloxacin is metabolized by phase II metabolism, rifampicin could cause a decrease in the plasma concentrations of moxifloxacin. Therefore, a pharmacokinetic interaction study is warranted.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The dormant form of TUBERCULOSIS where the person shows no obvious symptoms and no sign of the causative agent (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) in the SPUTUM despite being positive for tuberculosis infection skin test.

Tuberculosis of the brain, spinal cord, or meninges (TUBERCULOSIS, MENINGEAL), most often caused by MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS and rarely by MYCOBACTERIUM BOVIS. The infection may be limited to the nervous system or coexist in other organs (e.g., TUBERCULOSIS, PULMONARY). The organism tends to seed the meninges causing a diffuse meningitis and leads to the formation of TUBERCULOMA, which may occur within the brain, spinal cord, or perimeningeal spaces. Tuberculous involvement of the vertebral column (TUBERCULOSIS, SPINAL) may result in nerve root or spinal cord compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp717-20)

Pathological conditions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM caused by infection of MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS. Tuberculosis involvement may include the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.

TUBERCULOSIS that involves any region of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT, mostly in the distal ILEUM and the CECUM. In most cases, MYCOBACTERIUM TUBERCULOSIS is the pathogen. Clinical features include ABDOMINAL PAIN; FEVER; and palpable mass in the ileocecal area.

Tuberculosis of the mouth, tongue, and salivary glands.
