Summary Chlorpromazine inhibits growth of E. coli 9723. Various compounds, either metabolites similar in structure, neurohumoral agents or substituents of coenzymes, do not reverse inhibitory activity of this “tranquilizer.” Calcium in the form of calcium-d-pantothenate, calcium chloride or calcium acetate reverses the inhibitory activity of chlorpromazine.

Characterization of mixtures of compounds produced in chlorpromazine aqueous solutions by ultraviolet laser irradiation: their applications in antimicrobial assays

An investigation of the photoproducts obtained by exposure of chlorpromazine hydrochloride in ultrapure water to a 266-nm laser beam obtained by fourth harmonic generation from a Nd:YAG laser found fluorescence quantum yield of CPZ was determined relative to standard Zn-phthalocyanine in dimethyl sulfoxide.

Phenothiazines, bacterial efflux pumps and targeting the macrophage for enhanced killing of intracellular XDRTB.

The information collated suggests that this phenothiazine has the potential to cure XDR and MDR tuberculosis infections, a potential that has been recently demonstrated by its ability to cure 10 patients who presented with XDR TB infections.
