Mebendazole Medicinal Tablets 100MG Anthelmintics 1000's / Bottle
Mebendazole Tablets 100MG
Each tablet contains 100 mg Mebendazole.
Mebendazole is a broad-spectrum antihelminthic. It causes selective disappearance of cytoplasmic microtubules in the tegumental and intestinal cells of affected worms. Glucose uptake is thereby selectively and irreversibly blocked in susceptible adult intestine-dwelling helminths and their tissue dwelling larvae.
Inhibition of glucose uptake results in glycogen depletion of the parasite. This in turn results in reduced formation of ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) required for survival and reproduction of the helminth. Corresponding energy levels are gradually reduced until death of the parasite ensues.
Mebendazole is a versatile anthelminthic agent, particularly against gastro-intestinal nematodes. It is indicated for the treatment of single and mixed helminth infestations caused by:-
Nematodes such as:
|-||Trichuris trichiura (whipworm);|
|-||Ancylostoma duodenale (hookworm);|
|-||Necator americanus (hookworm);|
|-||Ascaris lumbricoides (large roundworm);|
|-||Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm);|
|-||Strongyloides stercoralis (threadworm).|
Cestodes such as:
|-||Taenia spp (tapeworm);|
|-||Infestations by Moniliformis moniliformis.|
Adco-Wormex is contra-indicated in persons who have shown hypersensitivity to mebendazole. Adco-Wormex should not be given during pregnancy and lactation.
