Tuberculosis Cycloserine Samserin

Uses
Samserin (Cycloserine) is an antibiotic used for tuberculosis. It exhibits a broad spectrum of activity and works by weakening and destroying the bacteria responsible for causing tuberculosis (known as mycobacterium tuberculosis). This is achieved by working against 2 enzymes (alanine racemase and d-alanine-d-alanine ligase) which are needed for the synthesis of cell walls. This blocks the bacteria from synthesizing cell walls, which they need to survive. As a result of this, the bacteria are destroyed. Generally, doctors advise the use of this medication in cases of bacterial resistance to other antibiotics. It is possible that it will be given in combination with other medications, so as to target the bacteria in different ways.

Dosage and Administration
Samserin (Cycloserine) comes in the form of 250mg strength film coated tablets for oral administration. Adults affected by active or extrapulmonary tuberculosis may be instructed to administer a daily dosage ranging from 500mg to 1g per day, as 1 or 2 doses. The length of time for which the medicine is to be taken can vary, usually until the maximum improvement in symptoms has been noticed. Normally, this means taking it for 18 to 24 months. However, in all cases, it will be necessary to comply with all instructions given by the doctor in charge of treatment.
