Tests for the presence of orally administered antituberculous drugs in the urine of patients undergoing chemotherapy as out-patients are necessary for three reasons. If they are negative, the clinician has good evidence that the patient has been taking his drug irregularly and can encourage him to mend his ways. Thev also make it possible to assess the regularity with which patients take their drugs so that subsequent analyses of their progress can be related to this important factor.
