The microfilaricidal effect of diethylcarbamazine was studied in the murine model of Brugia malayi microfilaremia. CFI mice with circulating microfilariae were treated with either diethylcarbamazine (6 mg kg-1 day-1) for 10 days or with normal saline. Although antibodies against crude microfilarial antigen were detected in both groups at the time of… CONTINUE READING
