Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  Strains of trypanosomes are to be found in the French Cameroun which are resistant to tryparsamide only, or in addition to tryparsamide, to one, or several drugs of the group tartar emetic, orsanine, amidines, moranyl.
  • 2.  Ninety seven per cent out of 394 tryparsamide resistant patients responded favorably to treatments with Mel B; three per cent were Mel B resistant.
  • 3.  Mel B resistance occurs in the French Cameroun under two circumstances: (a) linked to tryparsamide resistance as an inherent character of certain strains of trypanosomes; (b) developed in the organism of infested humans, in the wake of an insufficient treatment with a compound containing the same phenylmelaminyl radical, as Mel B.
