Abstract

Chenopodium is now widely accepted as an efficient drug in the treatment of hookworm disease. The mamimum dose is 3 c.c. for adults, but the dose most commonly given is 1.5 c.c. with graded dosage for children. Darling, Barber and Hacker 1 found that this dosage should be divided into two parts and given two hours apart in freshly prepared hard gelatin capsules. The last capsule is followed in two hours by a purge. They found that if this treatment was given twice at an interval of ten days, more than 97 per cent. of all hookworms were removed, with slight inconvenience to the patient. There are certain details in this method of treatment of hookworm disease by chenopodium that are not yet definitely worked out. The purpose of the four experiments here described is the study of the technic of chenopodium administration, considering the influence of various factors that
