Prothionamide (also known as protionamide) is a thioamide derivative with antitubercular activity. Prothionamide is indicated for the treatment of all forms and stages of pulmonary and extrapulmonary tuberculosis as second-line drug in the case of proven multidrug resistance of the pathogens against first-line drugs. Prothionamide is also indicated for the treatment of diseases caused by so-called ubiquitous (atypical) mycobacteria, and the treatment of leprosy in the context of modified therapy regimens. Prothionamide is always used in combination with other antimycobacterial chemotherapeutics and only if susceptibility of the pathogen against prothionamide has been proven. Prothionamide has also been studied for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
