It is a second-line antitubercular agent that inhibits mycolic acid synthesis. It also may be used for treatment of leprosy. We have reached the pinnacle of success and earned a name as an eminent organization engaged in offering Ethionamide. This drug is used in the treatment of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis when other antitubercular drugs have failed. The drug decreases the number of culturable Mycobacterium tuberculosis organisms from the lungs. Ethionamide inhibits the synthesis of mycoloic acids, an essential component of the bacterial cell wall.
