Studies in onchocerciasis. II. The use of hetrazan (banocide) in the treatment of African onchocerciasis



Studies in onchocerciasis. II. The use of hetrazan (banocide) in the treatment of African onchocerciasis



West African Medical Journal 3(3): 138-144



A total of 214 cases of onchocerciasis were treated with hetrazan in doses varying from 2-10 mg. per Ib. body-weight. This dose was given once the first day, twice the second, and three times daily thereafter, for periods ranging from 12-33 days. This was effective against microfilariae, but not against adult worms. Skin lesions began to disappear from the fourth day of treatment onwards and were cured within two months, but reappeared during the fourth month.
