actividad/acción antituberculoide o tuberculocida
Explanation:
"tuberculoidal activity" en este contexto suena un poco raro. "Tubercuoid, tuberculoidal = tuberculoide" que significa "semejante a un tubérculo o a la tuberculosis. Así que si hablamos de un desinfectante y se refiere a un agente que combate la tuberculosis, podría ser un antituberculoide. Si la acción del antituberculoide fuera destruir el Mycobacterium tuberculosis estaríamos hablando de un "tuberculOcida = tuberculocide". Sin embargo se puede ser un antituberculoide (por ejemplo, inhibir el crecimiento del organismo) sin ser un tuberculocida (eliminar al organismo)
