The slow development of major advances in drug discovery for the treatment of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) infection have led to a compelling need for evaluation of more effective drug therapies against tuberculosis. New classes of drugs are constantly being evaluated for anti-mycobacterial activity with currently a very limited number of new drugs approved for TB treatment. Minor Groove Binders (MGBs) have previously revealed promising anti-microbial activity against various infectious agents; however have not yet been screened against Mtb.
