Efficacy of flubendazole and albendazole against Trichinella spiralis in mice were studied. ICR mice were experimentally infected with Trichinella spiralis and treated with either flubendazole (FBZ) or albendazole (ABZ) at four different stages of the parasite life-cycle. Oral administration of either FBZ or ABZ at 20 mg/kg and 50 mg/kg on 2 h, 8 h and 24 h (pre-adult stage) after infection eliminated 94.7-100% of adults as determined at necropsy on day 7 post infection (p.i.) and 96.9-100% of larvae on day 45 p.i. FBZ was more effective than ABZ against adult T. spiralis (at 2 to 6 days p.i.), when treated with a dosage of 20 mg/kg for 5 consecutive days (99.4% and 46.0% reduction with respect to the control group). Against migrating larval T. spiralis, FBZ was more effective than ABZ at 20 mg/kg for five consecutive days (on days 11-15 p.i.), and the reduction rate of recovered larvae were 99.6% (FBZ) and 80.8% (ABZ) respectively. FBZ was more effective against early encapsulated larval T. spiralis (at 21 to 25 days p.i.), than ABZ when both were given at 20 mg/kg for five consecutive days (99.8% and 45.4% reduction, respectively). In conclusion, flubendazole was more effective than albendazole against adult and parenteral stages of Trichinella spiralis in mice.
The lung is the second most common site of hydatid cysts after the liver. The authors analyse retrospectively the results of patients treated with pulmonary hydatid cysts in the past 18 years, considering video-thoracoscopy. Twenty eight patients were treated during this period in 31 cases. Hydatid disease affected only the lung in case of 22 patients, while in 6 cases it was present in the liver and lung simultaneously. Pulmonary hydatid disease affected one side in 24 and both sides in 4 cases. For surgical treatment pericystectomy in one, atypical segment resection in 18, anatomical segmentectomy in three, lobectomy in 7 and video-thoracoscopy in 3 cases were performed without surgical complications. The mean hospital stay was 10.5 days in case of thoracotomies and 8.5 days in case of video-thoracoscopy. There was one recurrence in conventional surgery and reoperation was necessary. After video-thoracoscopy no recurrence was detected. Mean follow-up was 120 months, after video-thoracoscopy it was 20 months. Three patients have uncertain chest pain after thoracotomy, but none has any complaints after video-thoracoscopy. Fifteen patients took mebendazole permanently after the final histological result. According to the authors' practice the indication of lung resections for pulmonary hydatid cysts is limited, in selective cases video-thoracoscopic cystectomy can be a successful treatment of choice.
Crystal (Cry) proteins produced by the soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) are harmless to vertebrates, but they are highly toxic to insects and nematodes. Their value in controlling insects that destroy crops and transmit human diseases is well established. Although it has recently been demonstrated that a few individual Bt Cry proteins, such as Cry5B, are toxic to a wide range of free-living nematodes, the potential activity of purified Cry proteins against parasitic nematodes remains largely unknown. We report here studies aimed at characterizing in vitro and in vivo anthelminthic activities of purified recombinant Cry5B against the hookworm parasite Ancylostoma ceylanicum, a bloodfeeding gastrointestinal nematode for which humans are permissive hosts. By using in vitro larval development assays, Cry5B was found to be highly toxic to early stage hookworm larvae. Exposure of adult A. ceylanicum to Cry5B was also associated with significant toxicity, including a substantial reduction in egg excretion by adult female worms. To demonstrate therapeutic efficacy in vivo, hamsters infected with A. ceylanicum were treated with three daily oral doses of purified Cry5B, the benzimidazole anthelminthic mebendazole, or buffer. Compared with control (buffer-treated) animals, infected hamsters that received Cry5B showed statistically significant improvements in growth and blood hemoglobin levels as well as reduced worm burdens that were comparable to the mebendazole-treated animals. These data demonstrate that Cry5B is highly active in vitro and in vivo against a globally significant nematode parasite and that Cry5B warrants further clinical development for human and veterinary use.

A clinical trial of Korean Patent mebendazole was undertaken upon some intestinal helminthic infections in 288 rural Koreans residing in Pochun and Jinyang Gun, from November to December, 1976. They were examined by the cellophane thick smear technique, Stoll's egg counting technique and/or Scotch-tape anal swab before and 3 weeks after the treatment. The administered dose of mebendazole was 600 mg, divided by 100 mg, twice daily for 3 consecutive days disregarding the body weight and the age of the cases. It was confirmed that mebendazole is very effective, broad-spectrum anthelmintic, especially against Ascaris, Ancylostoma, Trichostrongylus and Enterobius infections. Their negative conversion rate and egg reduction rate were respectively; 94.0 and 99.6 per cent in Ascaris, 71.4 and 97.3 per cent in Ancylostoma and 95.0 and 100 per cent in Trichostrongylus. The negative conversion rate in Enterobius was 92.3 per cent. The anthelmintic efficacy against T. trichiura infection was not satisfactory in spite of low worm burden (negative conversion rate, 27.3%, egg reduction rate, 65.5%).

The efficacy of six anthelmintics against natural infections of Baylisascaris procyonis in raccoons (n = 7 per drug) was determined in a series of critical tests. The drugs were given via moist cat food as a single dose or once daily for three consecutive days. Raccoons treated with pyrantel embonate (1 x 20 mg base kg-1 bodyweight (bwt.)), ivermectin (1 x 1 mg kg-1 bwt.), moxidectin (1 x 1 mg kg-1 bwt.), albendazole (3 x 50 mg kg-1 bwt.), fenbendazole (3 x 50 mg kg-1 bwt.) or flubendazole (3 x 22 mg kg-1 bwt.) expelled 1-198, 2-24, 2-14, 3-80, 2-70, or 2-35 B. procyonis stages, respectively, within the faeces. No roundworm was detected in any raccoon at post mortem examinations 7 days after the end of treatment. These results suggest that any of the six anthelmintics can be used at the dose rates tested in a deworming programme for captive raccoons.
Enterobius vermicularis may cause infections of the gastrointestinal tract and occurs approximately in 4% to 28% of children worldwide. It is most common in children aged 5 to 14 years.The most commonly reported symptoms are pruritus in the perianal region, abdominal pain, urinary tract infection, insomnia, irritability, salpingitis, and appendicitis, whereas intestinal obstruction is a very rare but would be considered to perform the right instrumental examination avoiding unnecessary surgical exploration.We report a case of an 8-year-old boy with an intestinal occlusion due to a colonic intussusception by Enterobius vermicularis managed conservatively.
The prevalence and intensity of A. lumbricoides infections were found to be significant in El Abasto. No differences were detected in the case of T. trichiura. When prevalence and parasitic burden of A. lumbricoides were compared among controls within a single community (at the beginning and end of the study), no significant differences were observed in sample A, but a significant difference was seen in sample B. Insofar as T. trichiura is concerned, there were significant differences among controls in both samples.

Mebendazole levels were assayed by high performance liquid chromatographic assay in plasma, host tissues, and hydatid material taken from four patients who underwent surgery for hydatid disease. The drug was absorbed and had penetrated both into the host and into the parasite material. The levels of the drug in viable hydatid cysts were much lower than those in dead cysts. The possibility of exclusion or detoxification of the drug by viable hydatid cysts is raised.

Flubendazole, an injectable benzimidazole drug, was compared with diethylcarbamazine (DEC) in a prospective double-blind study of the treatment of onchocerciasis. Nineteen Mexican men were randomly assigned to receive either flubendazole 750 mg intramuscularly once a week for 5 doses, or DEC 100 mg twice daily for 14 days, and they were then followed up for 12 months. Major systemic side-effects during the first 3 weeks were common in the DEC group but not in the flubendazole group in which there was considerable inflammation at the injection site instead. Ocular complications (limbitis, punctate keratitis, and uveitis) were also common in the DEC group, whereas in the flubendazole group they consisted only of one new punctate opacity at day 4 in one subject. One DEC patient also had several new areas of chorioretinal changes on day 2 but these had disappeared by 2 months. Skin microfilaria counts fell rapidly in the DEC group, but returned to the pretreatment levels. In contrast, skin microfilaria counts in the flubendazole group fell slowly, but by 6 and 12 months were lower than in the DEC group (at 12 months 0.2 vs 7.3 mf/mg, p less than 0.001). In addition, by 6 months none of the flubendazole subjects had intracorneal microfilariae, and only one had microfilariae in the anterior chamber, whereas the numbers of intraocular microfilariae in the DEC group had returned to pretreatment levels. The results suggest that flubendazole is safer and more effective than DEC in the treatment of onchocerciasis.

Mebendazole (3.3 mumol), causes in vitro glycogen depletion and inhibits glucose uptake in Avitellina lahorea. Inhibition of non-specific phosphomonoesterases and adenosine triphosphatase by mebendazole discussed in the light of the role of phosphatases in uptake mechanisms. Mebendazole has no effect on hexokinase which has broad substrate specificity but influences the activities of some glycolytic enzymes such as phosphorylase, phosphoglucomutase and glucose-6-phosphatase. Thus, it appears that mebendazole also acts to disrupt certain enzymes of carbohydrate metabolism which may ultimately cause death of the parasite.

Ascaris lumbricoides is the largest intestinal nematode parasite of man, which can lead to various complications because of its mobility. As the esophagus is not normal habitat of Ascaris, the report of esophageal ascariasis is rare. An old female presented with dysphagia after an intake of several red bean buns and haw jellies. The barium meal examination revealed a spherical defect in the lower esophagus. Esophageal bezoar or esophageal carcinoma was considered at the beginning. The patient fasted, and received fluid replacement treatment as well as some oral drugs such as proton pump inhibitor and sodium bicarbonate. Then upper gastrointestinal endoscopy was done to further confirm the diagnosis and found a live Ascaris lumbricoides in the gastric antrum and two in the duodenal bulb. The conclusive diagnosis was ascariasis. The esophageal space-occupying lesion might be the entangled worm bolus. Anthelmitnic treatment with mebendazole improved patient's clinical manifestations along with normalization of the radiological findings during a 2-wk follow-up. Authors report herein this rare case of Ascaris lumbricoides in the esophagus, emphasizing the importance of awareness of this parasitic infection as it often presents with different and unspecific symptoms.

Benzimidazoles, namely albendazole (ABZ) and mebendazole, are the only drugs licensed for the treatment of inoperable alveolar echinococcosis. In addition, amphotericin B (AMB) has shown effect against Echinococcus multilocularis as salvage treatment in humans. Both benzimidazoles and AMB are only parasitostatic against E. multilocularis and toxicity may limit long-term use. In the present study we examined the effect of combined treatment between ABZ and AMB on E. multilocularis larvae in an in vitro model. Vesicles were grown in a tissue culture model of metacestodes and hepatocytes. Drugs were added to the culture and the destructive effect on the vesicles was visually observed. Sequential application of ABZ and AMB yielded effective destruction of vesicles which was faster than the application of AMB alone. However, simultaneous application of ABZ and AMB had an inhibitory effect on vesicle destruction. After discontinuation of drug application, regrowth of vesicles occurred, hereby proving the parasitostatic effect of combined treatment against E. multilocularis larvae. Due to an inhibitory effect between ABZ and AMB against E. multilocularis larvae, we discourage from the simultaneous application of both drugs. If our in vitro results hold true in vivo, sequential application of ABZ and AMB would be an effective means for long-term suppression of larval growth. Long-term tolerance of both drugs could be improved by a reduction of side effects.
The incidence of trichinosis in Russia was 0.07 per 100,000 population in 2014, which was 2.9-fold higher than that in 2013. Two WHO recommended medications mebendazole and albendazole are now used to treat humari trichinosis. The drugs are active against only mature helminths and non-encysted muscle larvae. The original oil suspension of micronized mebendazole was.found to have 100% efficacy against trichinosis in albino mice in the late muscular phase (encysted larvae) of hyperinvasion after intensive therapy under lifetime diagnostic guidance during and after a treatment cycle. The lifetime diagnostic method used to evaluate the larvicidal activity of anti-trichinosis agents in animals with experimental trichinosis revealed the signs of viaility, established a trend for deatih of Trichinella larvae, and determined their destructive changes.

The objective of this study was to develop a simple, direct and non-destructive method to assess crystal purity of mebendazole raw material and to establish its stability in a suspension formulation using diffuse reflectance ultraviolet (DRA-UV) spectroscopy and attenuated total reflectance-Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy. Quantitation of mebendazole, found to exhibit polymorphism with three polymorphic forms A, B and C identified, was carried out with ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. Artificial neural network (ANN) was employed as a data-modelling tool. The developed ANN models confirmed that the characteristic absorptions in the infrared (IR) spectral region are directly proportional to the measured amounts of mebendazole crystal forms present in the samples (r(2)>0.94), which was confirmed with X-ray diffraction (XRD) at r(2)>0.97. These models also predicted that the mebendazole raw material contained 7.21+/-1.25% (ATR-FTIR data) and 10.38+/-0.18% (XRD data) of form A as an impurity. ATR-FTIR data for the suspension formulation showed some dissolution of form C and recrystalisation as the more stable form A. These quantitative results obtained for the binary crystal form mixtures clearly demonstrate the strong potential of ATR-FTIR for use in the determination of the polymorphic content not only in bulk pharmaceuticals but also in liquid formulations.

The paper describes the 2003-2004 outbreak oft richinosis in 2 districts of the Kherson Region. Pork was a source of infection. The disease occurred with the ingestion ofshashlik, raw meat, lard, or minced meat. The diagnosis of trichinosis was established 1-1.5 months after the onset of the disease. The patients received a course of therapy and were discharged in a satisfactory condition. The members of their families were prophylactically treated. Meats were bought at the markets and had negative veterinary sanitary tests. A package of antiepidemic and antiepizootic measures was implemented in the foci of trichinosis.

The efficacy of seven more recently developed anthelmintics of the benzimidazolecarbamate group, i. e., parbendazole, mebendazole, fenbendazole, oxibendazole, cambendazole, oxfendazole and albendazole, has been tested in a series of experiments on white mice artifically infected with Trichinella spiralis. Our results disclosed a relationship between their anthelmintic effect and their chemical structure. This finding might be of importance in a targeted synthesis of new, effective, derivates of benzimidazole, e. g., in the therapy of trichinellosis and in the choice of the most effective drug.

Povidone is an allergic agent present in numerous substances, food and medicines. The authors present the clinical case of a 9-yr-old male child admitted in the emergency room with anaphylaxis, in two occasions separated by a 6-month period. The first episode occurred 5 min after the first oral administration of Fluvermal (flubendazole) and the second occurred 10 min after cutaneous application of Betadine (povidone iodine solution). Previous cutaneous application of this solution and ingestion of mebendazole occurred without apparent adverse reactions. The allergy study revealed eosinophilia, an elevated total IgE level and positive prick-by-prick test for both drugs. A cutaneous prick-by-prick test with povidone (the sole common constituent) was also positive. This is probably the first case described in the literature of anaphylaxis induced by povidone in a child.

The efficacy of the drugs flubendazole, levamisole, and their combination was studied against Angiostrongylus cantonensis infection in mice. The drugs were evaluated on day 15 post infection. The efficacy was assessed by using single-dose and 5-dose treatment schedules. Flubendazole was effective at 25 mg/kg, 50 mg/kg, 100 mg/kg, 200 mg/kg when given each day for five days. Levamisole at a dose rate of 200 mg/kg was completely effective in a single treatment. The combined therapy of levamisole (25 mg/kg) and flubendazole (15 mg/kg) produced 100% efficacy. Both drugs given prior to experimental infection showed no prophylactic activity.
