Molecule Structure Image



Clofazimine is a fat-soluble riminophenazine dye used in combination with rifampicin and dapsone as multidrug therapy for the treatment of leprosy. It has been used investigationally in combination with other antimycobacterial drugs to treat Mycobacterium avium infections in AIDS patients and Mycobacterium avium paratuberculosis infection in Crohn's disease patients. It also has a marked anti-inflammatory effect and is given to control the leprosy reaction, erythema nodosum leprosum. Drug is given as an alternative to patients who can not tolerate the effects of dapsone for tuberculosis.
