Epidemic hepatitis. Adverse effects of corticosteroids and a new method of treatment with Chingamin (cholroquine phosphate)
Taking into account that the routine use of corticosteroids in epidemic hepatitis treatment sometimes is a reason for different adverse effects, it is suggested that a new method of treatment with Chingamin (chloroquine phospate) be employed.
Chingamin had been used in the acute stage of infective hepatitis in 52 cases with good result and without adverse effects.
