The Food and Drug Administration approved the first drug to prevent a blood infection in people who have advanced AIDS, agency officials announced Wednesday. The drug, rifabutin, has been on a fast track through the agency's approval process, in part because it is for AIDS and in part because its results have been positive. Clinical tests have shown it to be effective in blocking or delaying Mycobacterium avium complex, or MAC.

An experimental antibiotic may prevent or delay the onset of a life-threatening and difficult-to-treat infection that afflicts thousands of AIDS patients, according to previously confidential data made available to The Times. A recently completed study of 590 AIDS patients has shown that the drug, rifabutin, can nearly cut in half the rate at which patients develop the infection, which is known as Mycobacterium avium complex, or MAC.
