Aniprazol uses and description

Sort by popularity
Aniprazol consists of Fenbendazole, Praziquantel.

Fenbendazole - Mebendazole belongs to the family of medicines called anthelmintics. Anthelmintics are medicines used in the treatment of worm infections. Mebendazole is used to treat:Common roundworms (ascariasis); Hookworm infections (uncinariasis); Pinworms (enterobiasis; oxyuriasis); Whipworms (trichuriasis); and More than one worm infection at a time. mebendazole may also be used for other worm infections as determined by your doctor. Mebendazole works by keeping the worm from absorbing sugar (glucose). This gradually causes loss of energy and death of the worm.

Praziquantel - Pharmacology: Increases cell membrane permeability in susceptible worms, resulting in loss of intracellular calcium, massive contractions, and paralysis of their musculature. Phagocytes are thus able to attach to worms, causing their death.

Indication: Infections caused by all species of schistosoma (eg, Schistosoma mekongi, Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma mansoni, Schistosoma hematobium ), liver flukes, Clonorchis sinensis, and Opisthorchis viverrini.

Unlabeled Uses

Aniprazol (Praziquantel) is an anthelmintic used in most schistosome and many cestode infestations. Aniprazol (Praziquantel) effects the permeability of the cell membrane resulting in the contraction of schistosomes. The drug further causes vacuolization and disintegration of the schistosome tegument. The effect is more marked on adult worms compared to young worms. An increased calcium influx may play an important role. Secondary effects are inhibition of glucose uptake, lowering of glycogen levels and stimulation of lactate release. The action of Aniprazol (Praziquantel) is limited very specifically to trematodes and cestodes; nematodes (including filariae) are not affected.

Aniprazol (Praziquantel) is used to treat parasitic and worm infections such as those caused by tapeworms.
