Abstract

Summary

Dimethyloctadecylamine hydrochloride was shown to be a safe drug that is fairly effective in the treatment of hookworm infections with a single dose of 50 mg per kg of body weight. The rate of cure was 64% of 50 patients studied, and there was a significant reduction of worm load in another 30% of the cases.

The side-effects were mild and usually due to gastrointestinal irritation. They could be avoided by giving the drug with milk, food, or antacid agents, and were usually amenable to symptomatic treatment.
