A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Leprostatic agents inhibit the growth of Mycobacterium leprae, the bacterium that causes leprosy. Different leprostatic agents work differently either by actively killing the growing mycobacteria or by inhibiting bacterial growth. Generally two to three drugs are used together in treatment to avoid emergence of resistant strains of the organism.
