How does mycobutin (rifabutin) and prednisolone treat tuberculosis?

They don't. Mycobutin (rifabutin) is an alternative to Rifampin for the treatment of tb. However, you would never treat TB with either of those drugs alone. Tb always requires combination therapy to prevent resistance. Rifampin is combined with 2-3 other anti-tb drugs. Prednisolone does not treat tb, but it is sometimes used to treat inflammatory symptoms that can occur as a result of TB or TB therapy.
