Oral miltefosine for leishmaniasis in immunocompromised patients: compassionate use in 39 patients with HIV infection.Clin Infect Dis. 2004 Nov 15; 39(10):1520-3.CI
Oral miltefosine was administered to 39 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients with leishmaniasis for whom standard leishmaniasis treatment had failed. Initial response was achieved in 25 patients (64%), including 16 patients (43%) with initial parasitological cure. Repeated responses after relapse and tolerability of long courses of treatment indicate the potential for development of optimized dosage schemes.
