Antischistosomal activities of a synthetic peroxide OZ78 (an ozonide carboxylic acid) against Schistosoma japonicum have been studied in mice and rabbits. Among 132 mice used, 30 of them were infected with 80–100 S. japonicum cercariae for collection of juvenile and adult schistosomes applied in in vitro tests. The remaining 102 mice were infected with 40(More)
