  • 1.  Tetrachlorethylene is taken with the same facility as carbon tetrachloride.
  • 2.  Test treatment of 14 patients gave reduction in egg output of 93 per cent with 3 cc. and 88 per cent with 2 cc.
  • 3.  Under field conditions, with adult doses of 3 and 2 cc. the reduction was 81 and 77 per cent respectively.
  • 4.  Fractional doses of tetrachlorethylene gave a reduction of 53 per cent.
  • 5.  The combined treatment of tetrachlorethylene and chenopodium gave an efficiency of 75 per cent.
  • 6.  Oil of chenopodium reduced the egg count by 47 per cent with doses of 1 to 1.5 cc. and by 24 per cent with a dose less than 1 cc.
  • 7.  Tetrachlorethylene gave no reduction in the Ascaris egg count, while the combined treatment and oil of chenopodium alone gave reductions of 59 and 66 per cent respectively.
  • 8.  Tetrachlorethylene is more active in reducing Trichuris counts than oil of chenopodium.
  • 9.  Tetrachlorethylene as a remedy for hookworm disease merits further trial.
  • 10.  Further test treatments with acid and neutral tetrachlorethylene is suggested.
