Comparative studies on prevalence of common intestinal nematode parasites in the tap water and non tap water supported areas on taiwan 2. prevalence of common intestinal parasites among children in the remote area of taiwan and determination of the minimum effective dose of new broad spectrum anti helminthics against the common intestinal parasites



National Science Council Monthly 9(2): 159-175



The minimum effective dose of mebendazole and combantrin in treatment of common intestinal nematode parasites among school children in 2 junior high and 13 primary schools in Nan-Ao and Chuang-Wei Districts of I-Lan County and Man-Chow District of Ping-Tung County was determined. Prevalence of parasitic diseases are as follows: incidence of Pediculus humantus capitis 2509 girl students were examined by the naked eye and combing technique; 998 girls were infected, or infection rate of 40%; incidence of enterobiasis.sbd.2267 children were examined by single scotch tape anal swab, 648 were found infected, giving the infection rate of 69%. incidence of common intestinal parasitic diseases.sbd.2267 stool samples were examined by formalin-ether concentration, test-tubefilter-paper cultivation and scotch tape anal swab techniques. An infection rate of 51, 36, 30, 1.1 and 0.2% was found for Trichuris, Ascaris, Taenia taiwanensis and Hymenolepis nana, respectively. Mebendazole and combantrin are highly effective in the treatment of common intestinal nematode parasites, but the former is more effective and safe drug than the latter. Mebendazole is the most promising anthelmintic for treatment of common intestinal parasites.
