Rifalazil is an antibiotic. Rifalazil kills bacterial cells by blocking off the β-subunit in RNA polymerase. Rifalazil is used as treatments for many different diseases. Of the most common are Chlamydia infection, Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea, tuberculosis. Using rifalazil and the effects that coincide with taking rifalazil for treating a bacterial disease vary from person to person, as does any drug put into the human body. Food interactions and genetic variation are a few causes for the variation in side effects from the use of rifalazil, its development was terminated in 2013 due to severe side effects. Rifalazil works well alone, in conjunction with other antibiotics alone. In a study conducted in 2005, it was found that combining rifalazil with vancomycin increased bacterial killing by a factor of 3. Rifalazil has a long half-life which allows more infrequent dosages as opposed to frequent small dosages of antibiotics. Many different studies have been conducted that researched the effect of rifalazil on certain strains of bacterial diseases.

In a study conducted in 2004, it was found that rifalazil reduces C. difficile strains when studied in vitro. Rifalazil has been developed to treat cases of chlamydia, it is good treatment for tuberculosis because rifalazil achieves high concentration in the blood cells and the lungs. In addition, rifalazil is becoming more used because it can be used along with many other indications, such as HIV, TB, MRSA. Rifalazil has a long half-life, useful for certain medications; the drug is administered orally, convenient in terms of drug administration. A longer half-life allows for few treatments and dosage which makes this an up-and-coming drug for tuberculosis, CDAD, chlamydia. Although the uses for rifalazil seem effective, there are negative side effects which make the use limited. Rifalazil interacts with other drugs and on top of that, rapid resistance develops to other drugs.
