The 5-nitroimidazoles, MK-436 and fexinidazole dissolved in dimethylsulphoxide can be converted by the addition of hydroxypropylcellulose into gels which facilitates the ease and accuracy of administration. When these gels are used in combination with melarsoprol gel they are capable of curing experimental murine CNS-trypanosomiasis with a one-day treatment. The use of melarsoprol/MK-436 was more efficient than melarsoprol/fexinidazole gels. Thus while a single treatment with 0.1 ml 3.6… CONTINUE READING
