20 of 21 cases of Schistosoma haematobium in human patients were cured after treatment with daily doses of 10 mg. of lucanthone hydrochloride per kg. body-weight and 1.0 mg. of tartar emetic per kg. body-weight given together for 12 days; this combined therapy was more effective and caused less marked side effects than the same daily doses of either drug given alone for the same number of days.
