Not to proceed with the experiment and no reliable references.
1. interfere with the diagnosis: taking the product can make the blood uric acid concentration increased measured values.
2. The following should be careful: gout, optic neuritis, kidney dysfunction.
3. During treatment should be checked:
(1) eye, vision, vision, red-green discrimination, etc., before treatment, treatment of daily checks, especially courses
Long, daily doses greater than 15mg / kg of the patient;
(2) serum uric acid, due to the onset of serum uric acid concentration increased, causing gout. Therefore, in the course of treatment should be measured regularly.

6. In view there is no practical method measured plasma concentration, dose should be calculated according to the weight of the patient. Patients with liver or kidney dysfunction, the product may increase the plasma concentration, half-life. Renal dysfunction in patients with the application required reductions.
[Pregnant women and lactating women drug]
1. ethambutol can cross the placenta, fetal blood concentration of about Mother plasma concentration of 30%. The goods in mice high doses can cause cleft palate, brain and spine malformations exposed; rats high doses of this product may cause mild cervical abnormalities; in rabbits high doses of this product may cause Cyclopia, short limbs, cleft lip and cleft palate and other deformities. Although not confirmed in humans, pregnant women still fully weigh the application. This product in combination with other drugs on the fetus are unknown.
2. ethambutol may be distributed to the milk, similar to the concentration and plasma concentration, although not confirmed in humans have problems lactating women must weigh.

 Pharmacology and Toxicology
This product is a synthetic antibacterial anti-TB drugs. Its mechanism of action has not been fully elucidated. It can penetrate the body interfering RNA synthesis mycobacteria, thereby inhibiting the propagation of bacteria, this product only to the growth and reproduction of mycobacteria effective. So far not found the goods with other anti-TB drugs have cross-resistance.
After gastrointestinal absorption after oral 75% to 80%. Widely distributed in body tissues and fluids (except cerebrospinal fluid). Within the red blood cell concentration and plasma concentration equal to or for the 2-fold, and sustainable 24 hours; the higher the kidneys, lungs, saliva and the urine drug concentration within; but pleural effusion and ascites, the concentration is lower. This product can not penetrate normal meninges, but tuberculous meningitis in cerebrospinal fluid of patients may have trace. Its volume of distribution of 1.6L / kg. Protein binding rate of about 20% to 30%. Oral administration of 2 to 4 hours up to the peak plasma concentration, half-life (Т1 / 2) of 3 to 4 hours, renal dysfunction may be extended to eight hours. Mainly by the liver, about 15% of the dose is metabolized to inactive metabolites. By glomerular filtration and tubular secretion discharge; after administration about 80% within 24 hours of discharge, at least 50% of the prototype excretion, approximately 15% to inactive metabolites. Excreted unchanged in the feces of about 20%. Milk in concentrations approximately equivalent to maternal blood concentration. A considerable amount of ethambutol can be cleared from the body by hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.
Shading, sealed and stored.
