Pilot Randomized Study of Paromomycin (Aminosidine) vs Streptomycin for Uncomplicated Pulmonary Tuberculosis
OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the pharmacokinetics and early bactericidal activity of paromomycin (aminosidine) vs streptomycin for the treatment of uncomplicated pulmonary tuberculosis.
II. Compare the tolerability of these two drugs in these patients. III. Establish the relationships between achieved serum concentration, minimal inhibitory concentration, and early bactericidal activity of paromomycin and streptomycin.
