Development of Anti-tubercular Drug

Development of Anti-tubercular Drug

Tuberculosis remains one of the greatest global health challenges of all time. Although current clinical use of first-line anti-TB drugs has reduced mortality, multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant forms of the disease have now spread globally and become a global problem. Even so, few new clinically approved drugs have emerged in the past 30 years. Highly biodiverse marine organisms have received considerable attention in drug discovery over the past few decades, and emerging drug resistance in tuberculosis has stimulated interest in evaluating marine natural products (MNPs) for the treatment of this disease. Marine environments are a rich source of diverse compounds with intricate structures and potent biological activities. To date, more than 170 compounds with anti-tuberculosis properties have been isolated from marine organisms. These compounds, including alkaloids, peptides, terpenoids, and polyphenols, have demonstrated remarkable potential in inhibiting the growth and proliferation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the bacterium responsible for causing tuberculosis.
