The contribution of ivermectin to the control of onchocerciasis


, : The contribution of ivermectin to the control of onchocerciasis. Cahiers d' Etudes et de Recherches Francophones/Sante 5(3): 149-158

Onchocerciasis is an infection with the nematode Onchocerca volvulus. The main clinical symptoms are caused by the microfilariae. They include ocular lesions leading to blindness. Onchocerciasis is widely distributed in Africa from the Sahara to the southern tip, and is also found in some areas of South and Central America. Ivermectin was shown to be an effective treatment in the early 1980s and is safe and better tolerated than diethylcarbamazine.
