Abstract

Summary

Prednisone in ordinary dosage has been found to increase significantly the number of microfilariae that persist in the night blood during treatment with diethylcarbamazine. This effect ceases when the prednisone is discontinued. The implications of this on theories concerning host-parasite relationships in filariasis and the microfilaricidal action of diethylcarbamazine are discussed.
