Summary 1. The preparation of 1-mono-substituted and 1,1-disubstituted nitrothia-zolylureas has been described. 2. Antihisto-monad activity was demonstrated for mono-substituted thiazolylureas with not more than 4 carbon atoms. The 1-methyl compound was more toxic and less effective than the 1-ethyl derivative. The dimethyl compound was less toxic and also less effective than the mono-methyl compound. 3. In addition to therapeutic activity in enterohepatitis, nithi-azide [l-ethyl-3-(5-nitro-2… 
The results of studies on the absorption and excretion of nithi­ azide by turkeys and chickens and the effect of this compound on their growth, maturation and reproduction are presented.
Histomonosis in poultry: previous and current strategies for prevention and therapy*
Considering existing regulations and the overall outcome of experimental studies, it can be concluded that vaccination is very promising, despite the fact that various challenges need to be addressed until the first ever developed vaccine based upon live flagellates in human or bird medicine can be marketed.
Experimental infections with the protozoan parasite Histomonas meleagridis: a review
During the last 10 years, intracloacal application of trophozoites has become the most popular way to experimentally infect birds with H. meleagridis due to its high reproducibility and reliability.
Blackhead Disease (Histomoniasis) in Poultry: A Critical Review
It was demonstrated that histomoniasis could spread rapidly through a flock of turkeys by direct contact, probably involving the phenomenon of cloacal drinking, and the lack of suitable treatment drugs or vaccines emphasizes the importance of prevention by worm control and management.
Nithiazide 3 Tolerance studies in poultry
ABSTRACT THE preceding papers in this series by Cuckler et al. (1956) and Cuckler and Malanga (1956) showed that nithiazide [1-ethyl-3-(5-nitro-2-thiazolyl) urea] was the most effective
