Abstract

Summary

Intramuscular injections of sodium antimony dimercapto-succinate (TWSb) into monkeys, experimentally infected with , resulted in suppressing the passage of eggs in their feces.

Temporary suppression was obtained with a single dose of the drug or by three doses given 2 weeks apart. Three injections of the drug given 3 weeks apart or five injections at 2-week intervals practically eliminated eggs from the monkeys' stools and greatly reduced the number of worms recovered at necropsy. Symptoms of drug toxicity were not observed in any of the animals.
