Abstract

Tapeworms affect 12% of people in Mexico City. We intend to treat Mexico’s largest pork producer with oxfendazole. Success will be determined by a statistically significant decrease infection of pigs by T. solium. Given our successful approach, treatment will spread to other GCM factories and eventually the entirety of Mexico’s pork industry.
