New TB drugs possible with understanding of old antibiotic

Tuberculosis, and other life-threatening microbial diseases, could be more effectively tackled with future drugs, thanks to new research into an old antibiotic by the University of Warwick and The Francis Crick Institute.
Led by Professor David Roper at Warwick's School of Life Sciences and Dr Luiz Pedro Carvalho from The Francis Crick Institute, a paper published in Nature Communications reveals a deeper understanding of how the antibiotic D-cycloserine uniquely works at a molecular level.
This could lead to more effective future antibiotics -- which are desperately needed to fight increasingly drug-resistant and deadly bacteria.
D-cycloserine is an old antibiotic drug which is effective against many microbial diseases such as tuberculosis, but is often used as a second line treatment, because of some adverse side-effects.
