Fully intermittent 6-month regimens are effective in patients with organisms sensitive to anti-tuberculous drugs. In patients with organisms resistant to anti-tuberculous drugs, lower failure rates were observed in 6 months' Rifampicin regimen compared to 2 months' Rifampicin regimen. Among 6 months Rifampicin regimens, better response was obtained with Rifampicin and Isoniazid given twice a week than once a week. Streptomycin as a third drug in continuation phase has no additional benefit.
