ALBENDAZOLE TABLETS 400mg
Anthelmintics are drugs that are used to treat infections with parasitic worms. This includes both flat worms, e.g., flukes and tapeworms and round worms, i.e., nematodes. They are of huge importance for human tropical medicine and for veterinary medicine. The World Health Organization estimates that a staggering 2 billion people harbour parasitic worm infections.
Mode of action
Â Â Â Â Â Albendazole is found to inhibit the
Â polymerization ofÂ the parasite tubulin into
microtubules. The loss of the cytoplasmic
microtubules leads to impaired uptake of
glucose by the larval and adult stages of
the parasites. The worm is then unable to
maintain energy production, which leads to
Â Â Â Â Â immobilization and eventual death.
