Abstract
Watkins and Woolfe (1952), by altering the quaternizing group of dimidium bromide, produced compounds which were more active than dimidium bromide against infections with Trypanosoma congolense and other trypanosome species in mice. The value of the most effective of these trypanocidal compounds-ethidium bromide-has since been investigated in Zebu cattle in East Africa against infections with T. congolense (Wilde and Robson, 1953; Wilson and Fairclough, 1953), and in the Sudan against infections with T. vivax (Ford et al., 1953).
