Although its efficiency against all Schistosoma species, praziquantel (PZQ) shows low efficacy against schistosomula and juvenile stages. The potential for development of resistance to PZQ has justified the search for new alternative chemotherapies. In this scenario, studies to new formulations

Previously, we have shown that persons with human immunodeficiency virus 1 (HIV-1) infection and reduced CD4(+) T-lymphocyte counts excrete significantly fewer Schistosoma mansoni eggs than HIV-1-negative persons with similar intensities of schistosome infections. To determine how antiretroviral therapy (ART) might
