Seven hundred and thirty-four trichuris and four hundred and fifty-seven hookworm infections were treated on various anthelmintic regimens involving the use alone and/or in combinations of piperazine citrate, piperazine adipate, piperazine phosphate, hexylresorcinol, methylbenzene, diphenthane-70, activated papain, phthalofyne, sodium santoninate, tetrachlorethylene, oil of chenopodium and . Although some of the results are promising, such as those with the piperazine salts, none are considered really outstanding, cure rates being fifty per cent or less. There is a great need for more effective anthelmintic agents in trichuriasis and hookworm disease; in the meantime, our best results are obtained with a mixture of tetrachlorethylene 2.7 cc. and oil of chenopodium 0.3 cc.
