oa Central African Journal of Medicine - Concurrent dosage with niridazole and metrifonate for the treatment of bilharziasis in school children in Malawi

Volume 26, Issue 9
  • ISSN : 0008-9176



The efficacy of concurrent single dosage with Metrifonate and Niridazole was investigated in school children infected with both S. haematobium and S. mansoni. The results indicate that the one dose combined treatment is statistically as efficient as the two dose Metrifonate regimen totalling 25 mg/kg, in reducing egg loads in children infected with S. haematobium. The combined treatment has no significant effect on S. mansoni egg levels.
