  • Pharmacological properties
  • Pharmacological properties

    Levamisole hydrochloride has a broad spectrum of antinematodic activity; it is very effective against larvae and mature forms of gastrointestinal and pulmonary nematodes including parasites in ruminants such as Haemonchus spp., Ostertagia spp., Trichostrongylus spp., Cooperia spp., Dictyocaulus spp., Protostrongylus spp., Nematodirus spp., Bunostomum spp., Oesophagostomum spp., and Chabertia spp.; parasites in pigs such as Ascaris suum, Strongyloides ransomi, Metastrongylus spp. and Oesophagostomum spp.; and parasites in dogs such as Toxocara sp., Toxascaris leonine, Uncinaria stenocephala, and Ancylostoma caninum. Mode of action: levamisole affects the neuromuscular system and inhibits the activity of enzymes in parasitic agents, thus causing its paralysis and death. After parenteral administration of the drug, levamisole hydrochloride is quickly resorbed from the injection site and distributed along the organs and tissues of an animal; concentration of levamisole hydrochloride reaches its peak value in 30 to 50 minutes and remains in the blood serum at a therapeutic level for 6 to 9 hours after the injection. Levamisole is excreted from the body unchanged within 3 to 7 days, mostly with urine and partially with feces; in lactating animals, it can also partially be excreted with milk.
