Abstract : An improved method is provided for the prevention of schistosomiasis in higher animals. The topical application of a composition containing a dehydroabietylamine or a derivative thereof provides a coating of perdurable anti-penetrant through which the infective cercariae of the parasitic worm do not pass readily.
