Abstract

Simple qualitative tests for rifampicin in urine, involving extraction with chloroform well as with benzene were investigated on 50 patients. A positive test result was obtained in 98-100% of the specimens between 3 and l1hours after drug administration by both methods. All specimens collected prior to administration of rifampicin as also specimens collected after ingestion of other anti-tuberculosis drugs were negative by both methods. However, the chloroform extraction method yielded positive reactions in 26% of 27 specimens collected after the administration of clofazimine.
