    Abstract

    Methods have been developed for estimating acetylisoniazid and isoniazid in urine without a spectrophotometer. In experiments with volunteers the ratio of acetylisoniazid to isoniazid in urine samples collected the morning after three spaced oral doses each of 100 mg. was bimodally distributed.
