 Combination Drug Therapy More Effective for Kala-azar Treatment

Combination treatments for Kala-azar (visceral leishmaniasis) have proved to be more effective and safe than the standard treatment, says a new study in the online edition of The Lancet.

According to the study combination treatment for visceral leishmaniasis reduces the duration of therapy, thereby encouraging adherence and reducing the emergence of drug-resistant parasites.
