Long-term effect of mass diethylcarbamazine chemotherapy on bancroftian filariasis: results at four years after start of treatment



Long-term effect of mass diethylcarbamazine chemotherapy on bancroftian filariasis: results at four years after start of treatment



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 92(1): 98-103



The long-term effect of 4 strategies for control of bancroftian filariasis using mass diethylcarbamazine (DEC) chemotherapy was assessed and compared in 4 endemic communities in Tanga Region, north-eastern Tanzania, over a period of 4 years. The strategies were the standard 12 day treatment (strategy I), semi-annual single dose treatment (strategy II), monthly low dose treatment (strategy III), and DEC-medicated salt treatment (strategy IV). Treatment was given only during the first year.
