Ref 12?[edit source]

Hello! Reference 12 is mentioned in the manuscript's text but is not included among its citations. Would you mind adding it? Thanks! —Collin (Bobamnertiopsis)t c 21:38, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

I have added reference 12

Thank you Vivian Mushi! I was also looking at the sources and it appears that the following text, cited to reference 9 (Speich et al., 2013) is not supported by the source: Nitazoxanide has shown to be effective in the protection and treatment of intestinal parasites such as G. lamblia, E. histolytica, I. belli, B. coli, Cryptosporidium spp., A. lumbricoides, T. trichura, T. saginata, H. nana, and F. hepatica when integrated with albendazole. The dose should be administered twice daily for 3 consecutive days at a dose of 200 mg for children less than 12 years and 500 mg for 12 years and above. Is there an alternate source that can support this? Thank you! (Also, you can sign your posts by typing four tildes after them, like this: ~~~~). —Collin (Bobamnertiopsis)t c 19:05, 31 January 2021 (UTC).

Thank you for this observation; I have added a new reference to support the observation.
