Abstract

Summary

Ethambutol enhanced the effects of chlorhexidine diacetate and cetylpyridinium chloride against BCG, . The findings show that it is possible to increase the susceptibility of mycobacteria to agents that normally exhibit poor activity against these organisms because of their reduced cellular penetration.
