Nicotinic acid derivatives

What are Nicotinic acid derivatives?

Nicotinic acid derivatives are highly specific antibacterial agents, active only against Mycobacterium. They appear to work by inhibiting peptide synthesis in susceptible organisms. Nicotinic acid derivatives are used for the treatment of tuberculosis infections, in combination with other medicines, as use alone results in the rapid development of resistance.
