Pharmacokinetic Interaction Study in Indonesian Tuberculosis Patients Indonesia
Pharmacokinetic Interaction Study of Rifampicin, Isoniazid and Moxifloxacin in Tuberculosis Patients in Bandung, Indonesia
Pharmacokinetic study in TB patients to determine the effect of rifampicin on the pharmacokinetic profile of moxifloxacin.
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.
