Newly acquired Onchocerca volvulus filariae after doxycycline treatment

Abstract

Despite successful mass drug administration and vector control programs, the nematode Onchocerca volvulus is far from being eradicated. Therefore, new long-term sterilizing or macrofilaricidal drugs are needed. The depletion of Wolbachia endobacteria using doxycycline leads to long-term sterilizing effects and macrofilaricidal activity against female… (More)
