AbstractMouse footpad studies indicate the strong, I bactericidal property of prothionamide against M. leprae supported with limited clinical experience. Based on the recommendation made by the Expert Committee on Experimental Chemotherapy, Mexico as well as by Ellard, 6 L L and 2 BL cases were administered prothionamide alone 500 mg and 250-375 mg daily for a period of 3 -6 months.
