Isoniazid, ever since its introduction in 1952, continues to be the most widely used chemotherapeutic agent for the treatment of tuberculosis. It has all the essential properties of an ideal chemotherapeutic agent – it is highly effective, it is specific in its action against the tubercle bacilli, its toxicity is minimal and it is inexpensive. We, at the Tuberculosis Research Centre, Madras, have carried out extensive clinical, pharmacological and biochemical investigations with isoniazid and I may be pardoned if my presentation is confined mostly to the findings of our studies.
