The introduction of ipecac and its derivations of various emetin compounds was thought to be the solution of a difficult therapeutic problem. With the passage of time ipecac and emetin have proved to be efficient in controlling the symptoms of acute amebiasis but they have proved a disappointment in a large group of cases with regard to eradicating the parasite. In the last few years it has been realized that treatment must be carried out along broader lines, and hence, many new preparations have been added.
Willner has recently reviewed his results with the use of yatren, stovarsol and auremetin.
