Abstract

To investigate whether pyrazinamide deamidase activity is suppressed in tuberculosls, serial serum concentrations of pyrazinamide, following 40 mg of pyrazinamide per kg, were determined in 10 patients with-sputum positive pulmonary tuberculosis and in 10 control subjects without disease. The concentrations and the half-lives of pyrazinamide were similar in the 2 groups, suggesting no suppression of the deamidase activity in tuberculous patients.
