In rhesus monkeys () infected with (Japanese strain), derived from cercariae obtained from the natural molluscan host , a single treatment with the purine nucleoside antibiotic tubercidin (7-deazadenosine) seemed to be as effective as two treatments 1 month apart. The high efficacy of a single treatment with tubercidin against schistosomiasis japonica in monkeys was comparable to that found previously against schistosomiasis mansoni in monkeys. However, the second treatment with tubercidin apparently was responsible for the eradication of the few deformed female worms which presumably survived the first treatment.
