Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

The 5-nitroimidazole (5-NI) class of antimicrobials, including metronidazole and tinidazole, are 10% to 30% more likely to result in cure than other antiparasitic agents for Giardia in adults and children (SOR: A, meta-analysis of RCTs). Single-dose tinidazole is 40% to 90% more likely to result in cure than albendazole for eradication of Giardia in children (SOR: A, meta-analysis of RCTs).
