Abstract
Levamisole at 5 and 10 mg. per kg. body-weight, given to rabbits for 3 days before and 10 days after administration of Stephanurus dentatus larvae had no effect on the pathology of the liver or the number of parasites. Little effect was noted in pigs given 30, 000 S. dentatus larvae orally and, 7 months later, levamisole resinate at 8 or 24 mg. active ingredient per kg. in food for 7 days.
