But with pretomanid, in a regimen that includes two other drugs, bedaquiline and linezolid, we see improvement within a few weeks. T he new drug is used in combination with two others in a six-month, tablet-based treatment regime known as BPaL: bedaquiline, pretomanid and linezolid. T he TB Alliance will now work towards introducing the BPaL treatment regime in countries with the highest burden of drug resistant strains.
