Mairin is a combined remedy with antimicrobial and anti-tuberculosis ability. Its activity is manifested in relation to the mycobacteria of tuberculosis, regardless of the stage of development of the bacterium.

Rifampicin is a semisynthetic antimicrobial agent belonging to the Ansamycin group. Due to rifampicin, inhibition of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase occurs.

Isoniazid inhibits the production of mycolic acids in the cell membrane of tuberculous mycobacteria.

Etambutol falls into the rapidly developing cellular structures of mycobacteria, inhibits the production of metabolism, interfering with the metabolism of cells. This leads to disruption of life and death of pathogenic microorganisms.

Rifampicin together with isoniazid are active in rapidly developing extracellular bacteria. In addition to mycobacteria tuberculosis, the drug acts on microbes that cause brucellosis, trachoma, typhus, legionellosis, leprosy.

Bacteria do not develop enough resistance to the drug due to its complex composition.
