Answer

Antibiotics, Other

Certain antibiotics may modulate the immune system.

Dapsone

The mechanism of action of dapsone is similar to that of sulfonamides, in which competitive antagonists of para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) prevent formation of folic acid. The effects of this agent on inflammatory reactions are unknown.
