Nifurtimox is the best treatment but is still investigational.  Benznidazole is
equally effective and is used in South America.  These drugs must be taken for
several months and may have severe side effects.  They may not even cure the
disease.  The best cure is prevention.  I am not a physician.

Nifurtimox è il trattamento migliore ma è ancora d'investigazione. Benznidazole
è
ugualmente efficace ed è usato nel Sudamerica. Queste droghe devono essere prese

per parecchi mesi e possono avere effetti secondari severi. Non possono neppure
curare la malattia. La cura migliore è prevenzione. Non sono un medico.
