Different efficacy of Mectizan on microfilariae of Onchocerca volvulus and Mansonella perstans in patients



Different efficacy of Mectizan on microfilariae of Onchocerca volvulus and Mansonella perstans in patients



Mitteilungen der Osterreichischen Gesellschaft fur Tropenmedizin und Parasitologie 12: 179-184



Fifty-five onchocerciasis patients from Togo with concomitant M. perstans and O. volvulus infection were given either a single 100-200 micro g/kg dose of Mectizan (31 patients), or a placebo (24 patients). Microfilarial densities were assessed over a period of 6 months.
