Canet & Jahan report very favourably on the results of treatment of ten agricultural workers in Tonking who were infected with Wuchereria bancrofti but with one exception were without clinical filariasis. The drug employed was 3.799 RP (=hetrazan), in doses of 0.3-0.4 gm. per day for 4-10 days. In eight cases a second course lasting 3-9 days at the same dose rate was given 10 days to one month after the first.
