As measured by a proportional bactericidal technique in the mouse footpad system, the bactericidal activity against Mycobacterium leprae of R207910 was equal to that of rifapentine, rifampin, or moxifloxacin and significantly greater than those of minocycline, PA-824, and linezolid. These data suggest that R207910 may play an important role in treatment of leprosy.
