Taeniasis: large-scale treatment shows interesting and far-reaching results

A three-year pilot project for the control of taeniasis in Madagascar has shown very interesting and far-reaching results. Eligible adults and children aged five and over in 52 villages in the District of Antanifotsy were treated with the medicine praziquantel (at a dose of 10 mg/kg). The medicine was well-tolerated, with no major side events reported throughout the duration of the project.
