HIV coinfection, weakening the immune system, increases the chances of progression to active TB dramatically, resulting in catastrophic situations such as seen, for instance, in Africa (Donald and van Helden, 2009). The increase of drug-resistant TB clearly demands the discovery and development of new antimycobacterials. At the time of writing, a few new drug candidates—two novel nitroimidazoles and an ATP synthase inhibitor—entered clinical development. , 2008; Nathan, 2009). Developing new antimycobacterials to keep drug-resistant TB at bay is the primary objective for TB drug discovery.
