Sputum negative patients of pulmonary tuberculosis were randomly given salbutamol + bromhexine (Group I), salbutamol (Group II), bromhexine (Group Ill) or B. Complex (Group IV) for two days. Sputum, collected on second day, was analysed macroscopically, microscopically and by culture. Higher number of Group I patients produced true sputum samples after therapy as compared to the rest. 11 of the 12 culture positive cases of this group were positive by smears also.
