The FDA OKs J&J's (JNJ -0.2%) Sirturo drug for treating tuberculosis in patients who don't respond to other medicines. Sirturo is the first drug in four decades to fight TB using a new mechanism - the treatment blocks an enzyme that's vital for the survival of TB bacteria. The FDA authorization comes after only Phase II of trials - J&J is due to start Phase III in Q1 2013 - and despite more patients dying than with other drugs.
