Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a significant global health and socioeconomic challenge. The duration of current anti-TB therapies, the adverse effects of certain anti-TB drugs and the growing problem of drug-resistant TB on an international scale mean that it is imperative for new, effective and safe treatment regimens to be developed. Fluoroquinolones are a class of drugs that have been used in the treatment of TB for several decades. This article provides an overview of the current treatment regimens for drug-sensitive and drug-resistant TB; discusses the history, effectiveness and challenges of using fluoroquinolones in TB treatment; and considers future research priorities.
