From the laboratory to the home of the patient infected with Onchocerca volvulus (O. v): clinical experience with amocarzine (preliminary results)
PD Dr., med. A.A. Poltera, Ciba-Geigy, Ltd, Pharma Division, Dept. of Medicine, K-24-4-09, CH-4002 Basle / Switzerland.
If dosed correctly, amocarzine has onchocercacidal effects with acceptable clinical tolerability. Up to now over 1 900 patients were exposed to an initial amocarzine regimen and over 500 have been re-exposed to amocarzine 2 years after initial therapy. Amocarzine is a promising onchocercacidal drug and a potential candidate for onchocerciasis control programmes.
Key words: onchocerciasis / chemotherapy / amocarzine
