Two six months’ short course twice weekly intermittent regimens of chemotherapy comprising Streptomycin, Isoniazid and Pyrazinamide with the addition of Rifampicin for the initial two months in the first regimen (RI) and a non rifampicin regimen (RII) with Ethambutol administered throughout, were studied. Considering the patients’ acceptability, efficacy (bacteriological and radiological), the incidence of relapse and cost factor, RI has been found to be better.
