We explored the prophylactic efficacies of two novel protease inhibitors in murine cysticercosis. Our results demonstrated a 95% and 80% reduction in parasite burden for mice injected with Z-LLL-FMK and Z-LLY-FMK, respectively. Further studies are merited on the role of cysteine proteinase inhibitors in treatment of cysticercosis.
