Availability of Parenteral Isoniazid -- United States

Because parenteral isoniazid is unavailable commercially, a limited supply of this drug will now be made available through CDC under an investigational new drug agreement for the treatment of patients with active tuberculosis for whom the oral formulation of the drug cannot be prescribed. Clinicians and other health-care providers interested in obtaining this drug for their patients should contact CDC's Clinical Research Branch, Division of Tuberculosis Elimination, National Center for Prevention Services, telephone (404) 639-2530.

The Food and Drug Administration is working with pharmaceutical manufacturers to reestablish a supply of this drug; the drug is expected to become commercially available in the United States early next year.
