  • The hepatic levels of thiamine, pantothenic acid and niacin in hamsters infected with S. mansoni were depressed, while the levels of riboflavin and pyridoxine remained unchanged. A single dose of oxamniquine, 10-50 mg/kg, brought the levels of thiamine, pantothenic acid and niacin to values not significantly different from those in non-infected controls, but lowered the concentrations of riboflavin and pyridoxine in infected hamsters.
