  • Objective: The resurgence of tuberculosis (TB) caused by Mycobacterium TB (MTB) is associated with the rapid spread of multidrug-resistant, therefore, the development of new antimycobacterial agents is necessary. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimycobacterial activity of ursolic acid (UA) when it using alone and combination with TB drugs. Methods: MTB H37Rv strain, streptomycin-rifampicin resistant strain, and isoniazid-ethambutol resistant strain were evaluated by susceptibility… CONTINUE READING
