Abstract:

The effectiveness of ozonized oil, Oleozon-A, orally, in the 
treatment of children infected by Giardia lamblia was evaluated.  222 
children, from 7 months to 14 years were studied.  The diagnosis of 
giardiasis was confirmed by fecal heces or duodenal gavage.  Oleozon-
A was dosified by drops or capsules, according to age.  With the 
pattern of treatment proposed, 79% of cured children were achieved.
