In brief: Tried but failed
This germ is a slow growing one that has been infecting humans since cave man times.
There have been many things tried over the years but none have any true therapeutic effect. TB has the ability to burn out and stop on its own, so much of what may have been touted as a cure was the natural course of the disease. Proper diet & rest did allow the bodies immune system to slow the process until it did
