What are Leprostatics?

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.
