Gastrografin is a water-soluble contrast medium of high osmolarity composed of sodium diatrizoate, Meglumine amidotrizoate
and wetting agent (polysorbate 80).
After that, 30ml of an ionic iodinated contrast media (sodium amidotrizoate associated with meglumine amidotrizoate (a)) was diluted with 30ml of physiological solution 0.9% (b) in three 20ml syringes.
A cephalic venous catheter was placed and an ionic iodinated contrast media (sodium amidotrizoate associated with meglumine amidotrizoate (a)) was given by intravenous bolus injection at the dose of 2ml [kg.sup.-1].
Treatment with anthelminthics (praziquantel for most; bithionol, paromomycin, or sodium amidotrizoate
and meglumine amidotrizoate
[Gastrografin; Bayer Schering Pharma AG, Berlin, Germany] for a few with older cases) showed that 69 (95%) of 73 patients were infected with 1 tapeworm, 2 were infected with 2 tapeworms, and 2 were infected with 3 tapeworms.
The interference peak in the electropherograms was located at the prealbumin zone for meglumine iotroxate, at the anodal site of the [[alpha].sub.2]-globulin fraction for meglumine amidotrizoate, in the middle of the [[alpha].sub.2]-globulin fraction for ioxitalamic acid and iobitridol, at the cathodal site of the [[alpha].sub.2]-globulin fraction for iohexol, at the anodal site of the [beta]-globulin fraction for sodium-meglumine ioxaglate, and in the middle of the [beta]-globulin fraction for ioversol.
