Session III: Helminthiasis: Treatment with Oxantel-pyrantel, (Continued) Chairman: Dr B.D. Alora (Manila)

Summary

The incidence and pathogenicity of trichuriasis is reviewed. Reference is made to earlier, largely unsuccessful, treatments, and to mebendazole. Oxantel, the most recent drug shown to be effective against Trichuris is discussed, as is oxantel-pyrantel which promises to be effective against mixed helminthic infections.
