BACKGROUND We present an endoscopic approach to patients with fascioliasis resistant to oral pharmacotherapy. A staged study was performed in which the effect of flushing the biliary system with a fasciolicidal solution was evaluated. METHODS In phase I of the study, four agents (povidone iodine, potassium permanganate, chlorhexidine, and sodium(More)

The present work aimed at studying the effect of Ambrosia maritima (Damsissa) on the viability of Lymnaea snails. Lymnaea snails used in these trials were acclimatized to laboratory conditions before use in the toxicity test. The snails were exposed to various concentrations (100-3000 mg/l) of dry powdered Damsissa, Ambrosia maritima was lethal to Lymnaea(More)
A metacercarial precipitin test was devised for diagnosis of human fascioliasis. The sera tested were those of cases of fascioliasis (acute and chronic), of schistosomiasis and of normal healthy individuals. Metacercariae were prepared in the laboratory from naturally infected snails. Serum dilutions of 1:5 (20%) and 1:10 (10%) were incubated with(More)
