Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  The dog, harboring , serves as an appropriate laboratory animal for testing the filaricidal effect of drugs proposed for use in the treatment of human filariasis.
  • 2.  Fatal doses of fouadin given intramuscularly, within a short period of time caused a complete disappearance of the microfilariae from the peripheral blood of the dog, but exerted little or no damaging effect on the adult worms in the heart or pulmonary artery.
  • 3.  Carbarsone, hexylresorcinol, trypan blue or sodium-iodoantimonite did not possess any marked filaricidal or microfilaricidal qualities when tested on dogs infested with the heart-worm.
