Abstract: The efficiency of single treatments with bunamidine hydroxynaphthoate (BHN, Burroughs Wellcome and Co. ), bunamidine hydrochloride (BHC1, “Scolaban” Burroughs Wellcome and Co. ), niclosamide (NA, “Dayermin” Chinoin) and cantrodifene (CF, “Lopatol”, CIBA-GEIGY) against 6-week old E. ganulosus was tested on 113 experimentally infected dogs. BHN at 100 mg/kg removed 95.1-97.2 per cent of the worms from 89 per cent of the treated dogs. Following treatment with NA or CF, considerable worm reduction was recorded in 28 and 14 per cent of the animals, respectively, while results of the BHCl-treatment were inconclusive. BHN in biscuit formulation was found to fulfill practical requirements of control schemes involving regular dosing.
