Nicotinic acid derivatives

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.

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.
