Scientists have discovered an antibiotic used for the treatment of tuberculosis, preventing the development of resistant capacity and even a compound substance reversing it. Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the most deadly infectious diseases worldwide. The biggest obstacle in the treatment of this disease is the evolution of drug-resistant tuberculosis. About 1.5 million people died due to tuberculosis in 2017, making it the world's deadliest infectious disease.
American University of Washington and Umeå University of Sweden overturned resistance to isoniaagid. Isoniazid is the most commonly used antibiotic in TB treatment. This was done on the developing bacteria in the research lab which paved the way for people and animals to study in future. Using this substance with isoniaagid, the effect of antibiotic can be sustained in such people Which are drug resistant tuberculosis. This study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences magazine.
