Studies in onchocerciasis. III. The combined use of hetrazan and antrypol (Suramin B.P.) in the treatment of African onchocerciasis



Studies in onchocerciasis. III. The combined use of hetrazan and antrypol (Suramin B.P.) in the treatment of African onchocerciasis



West African Medical Journal 3(4): 166-168



Intravenous Antrypol and oral Hetrazan were used in 22 cases; Antrypol was used alone in 12 cases. Hetrazan caused early disappearance of skin lesions; the effect of Antrypol was slow, but it was effective against adult worms. Use of both drugs together appears best.
