Levamisole therapy in Indian childhood cirrhosis
Nine histopathologically proved cases of ICC were treated with the immunopotentiating agent levamisole. Equal number of ICC patients were on steroid treatment and served as controls. Fatal outcome was invariable in both groups. The duration of treatment i.e. from beginning of treatment to death did not differ in the two groups. It is concluded that levamisole in the doses given has no therapeutic value in ICC.
