Abstract

Summary

Pyrimethamine (Daraprim) in doses of 25 mg. per adult, was administered weekly to 110 individuals living in a small malarial endemic village in Jordan. One hundred and twenty other individuals living in the same village who served as the control group received placebos. During the 18-week period of the study (June 20 to October 24, 1954), 25 of the control group developed malaria () whereas no cases of malaria occurred among the pyrimethamine treated individuals.
