Leprosy is a chronic infection caused by the acid-fast, rod-shaped bacillus Mycobacterium leprae. Leprosy can be considered 2 connected diseases that primarily affect superficial tissues, especially the skin and peripheral nerves.

The system of multiple drug therapy for leprosy recommended by the World Health Organisation in is an extremely effective treatment which, if widely introduced and effectively operated, could result in a dramatic reduction of the incidence and severity of leprosy throughout the : Allan Colin McDougall.
It was used as a single dose for single skin lesions but in a large study from India was found to be less efficacious than the standard paucibacillary-multiple drug therapy (PBMDT) regimen, given for six months.
7 Monthly rifampicin, ofloxacin, and minocycline in combination has been used in both multibacillary and paucibacillary disease, with good clinical responses. 8 Although the initial Cited by: Implementing Multiple Drug Therapy for Leprosy Author Oxfam Voices of Former Hansenites in Sarawak, Borneo: A Short Note: Unveiling Hidden Voices of Persons Affected by Hansen's Disease.
The impact of MDT on leprosy disabilities This article will review the impact of mUltiple drug therapy (MDT) on leprosy disabilities at two different levels: therapeutic (the impact on different types of impairment, which cause disabilities), and preventive (the impact on individuals with different types of leprosy.
Multidrug therapy (MDT) for leprosy was introduced by WHO inin which paucibacillary patients are treated with rifampicin and dapsone for 6 months, while multibacillary patients receives rifampicin, dapsone and clofazimine for 12 months [ 5, 6 ].

The drug clofazimine is now a component of the multidrug therapy (MDT), introduced by WHO in as the standard treatment for leprosy and now supplied free of charge to all patients worldwide.
The presence of clofazimine in the combination has significantly reduced. However, discovery of M. leprae by Armauer Hansen, use of chaulmoogra oil in treatment of leprosy generated hope that leprosy is treatable. Discovery of dapsone in and later implementation of multi drug treatment (MDT) in changed the entire scenario.
To the Editor: Since the initiation of multidrug therapy for leprosy (Hansen disease) in the s by using rifampin, dapsone, and clofazimine, resistance to rifampin and dapsone has been observed worldwide and is still prevalent (1,2).Because few alternative effective antileprosy drugs exist, resistance to these first-line drugs could seriously affect leprosy control programs.
