This book is comprised of reviews on the chemotherapy of mycobacterial infections, as well as descriptions of established methods and new techniques for drug susceptibility testing. Some of the fascinating topics examined include the activity of conventional and experimental antimicrobial agents, the rationale of drug combinations in chemotherapy, pharmacokinetics, and the problems of drug susceptibility of mycobacteria analyzed using standards established in other fields of clinical microbiology. Any physician or researcher involved with the therapy of tuberculosis, leprosy, M. avium in AIDS patients and other mycobacterial infections, and drug susceptibility testing will discover a wealth of information in this comprehensive volume.Thornsberry, C. and Sherris, J.
