[The prevention and therapy of fascioloidiasis using bithionol sulfoxide].

The elimination of the sources of invasion, i. e. hay and forage coming from the infested biotopes, combined with the administration of bithionol sulphoxide, resulted in a reduction of the invasion of cattle by Fascioloides magna from 21.1 to 3.2% within two years. The Czechoslovak-produced bithionol sulphoxide, administered at a rate of 40 to 50 mg per kg body weight as medicated feed, showed 100% effectiveness. At doses higher than 30 mg per kg body weight, the protective period should be prolonged to three or four weeks.
