Active Ingredient History
Bedaquiline (trade name Sirturo, code names TMC207 and R207910) is a diarylquinoline anti-tuberculosis drug, which was discovered by a team led by Koen Andries at Janssen Pharmaceutica. When it was approved by the FDA on the 28th December 2012, it was the first new medicine to fight TB in more than forty years, and is specifically approved to treat multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis. Bedaquiline is a diarylquinoline antimycobacterial drug that inhibits the proton pump of mycobacterial ATP (adenosine 5'-triphosphate) synthase, an enzyme that is essential for the generation of energy in Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Bacterial death occurs as a result of bedaquiline. NCATS
