Abstract : Seventeen aviators who converted from negative to positive on a tuberculosis tine test performed a variety of laboratory tests given before, during and after INH therapy. INH was administered prophylactically at dosage levels of 300 mg. per day for one year. The tasks consisted of reaction time (auditory and visual), rotary pursuit tracking, mental multiplication and digit span. The data did not indicate that the drug adversely affected performance, on any of the tasks utilized. (Author)
