A clinical assay in phase IV was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of oral Oleozón® used in children and adolescents with giardiasis, assisted in the Pediatrics specialty consultation from "Julián Grimau García" University Polyclinic in Santiago de Cuba, from January to December, 2015. The universe was constituted by 116 patients (with the same number of cases and controls) and aged 1 to 18 years, infected by Giardia lamblia who presented abdominal pain, vomit and anorexy as fundamental symptoms. In the series it was obtained that the highest number in the patients of the experimental group whose therapeutic schedule included Oleozón® , solved the abdominal pain and it improved their general state when decreasing the rest of the symptoms. It could be concluded that the Oleozón® was effective in the treatment against giardiasis, because the samples of faeces were negative in all cases; besides, it produced no adverse reactions and its cost is low, what bears an economic, social and environmental impact
