Albendazole is an anti-parasitic active ingredient widely used as veterinary & human Health medicine to treat pets and livestock against internal parasites. Veterinary doctors prefer to treat internal parasitical problems caused by roundworms, pinworms, tapeworms, and liver flukes with Albendazole. But it is ineffective against external parasites. It is administered orally in the form of tablets, pills, or oral suspensions. However, it is to be noted that Albendazole is not used against agricultural and household pests. Albendazole was developed in 1975. It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines for animals.

Albendazole mode of operation:

Albendazole is a broad spectrum anti-helminthic. Its principal mode of operation is by creating an inhibitory effect on tubulin polymerization which results in the loss of cytoplasmic microtubules in the intestines of nematodes worms, ultimately causing energy depletion and death of the organism.

Synonyms of Albendazole:

Albendazole API is also known as Albendazolum, Albenza, Andazol, Eskazole, and Zentel.

Albendazole and animal diseases:

Albendazole is anthelmintic for veterinary use in cattle, sheep, goats, swine, camels, dogs, cats, elephants, and poultry. It is a medication that is widely used for the treatment of a variety of parasitic worm infestations. Although Albendazole is mainly used in cattle and sheep, it is found effective in cats and dogs as well. It is also used in ratite birds and swine to flagellate parasites and tapeworms.

Albendazole benefits/effectiveness/results for Veterinary:

Albendazole has greater bioavailability in ruminants: some albendazole sulfoxide, when released back into the rumen, is reduced to albendazole by the resident microbiota. On the other hand, since cats and dogs have no rumen reservoir, they sometimes need higher or more frequent doses as compared to ruminants. The medicinal effect varies according to the species of the animals. In dogs, albendazole sulfoxide is detectable in the plasma for less than 12 hours, but in sheep and goats, it remains at measurable levels for around three days.

Albendazole and Human diseases:

Albendazole is a medical drug administered as an effective treatment for infections caused by flatworms, tapeworms, hookworms, etc. in humans. Albendazole is effective in treating many diseases. It is FDA-approved for treating hydatid disease caused by dog tapeworm larvae and neurocysticercosis caused by pork tapeworm larvae.

Albendazole benefits/effectiveness/results for Human:

Albendazole is an anthelmintic or anti-worm medication. It is administered to prevent newly hatched insect larvae (worms) from growing or multiplying in the human body. Albendazole is used to treat certain infections caused by worms such as pork tapeworm and dog tapeworm. Albendazole is effective if taken after eating sufficient food. Albendazole needs to be taken for the full prescribed length of time, even if a patient feels health improvement. Skipping doses is not advisable and can increase the risk of infection that resists the medication. Albendazole does not treat the flu or a common cold.
