Salicylate kinetics in intestinal helminthic infections.
S Gupta, RK Raina, AS Manhas
1. Salicylate pharmacokinetic parameters in six healthy and ten worm infested adults were determined after an oral dose of 1200 mg of acetylsalicylic acid.
2. The results obtained indicate that various kinetic values obtained in normal volunteers in the present study are almost similar to the data reported for European and American populations
3. Round worm infection did not alter any aspect of the handling of the drug body in a significant way.
4. Delayed elimination of the drug in patients with hookworm infection was observed.
