Transcript

  • 1. Presented by : M. Asim Shahzad Roll No. 19 ANTHELMINTICS USE IN ANIMALS
  • 2. ANTHELMINTIC DRUGS Helminth Infections 1-Tapeworms ( cestodes) Beef tapeworm / fish tapeworm 2- Intestinal round worms ( nematodes) Ascaris, pinworm ,whipworm, strongyloides, ancylostoma ( hookworm ). A skin infection is termed cutaneous larva migrans Visceral larva migrans .
  • 3. Anthelminthic Drugs <ul><li>May act by causing : </li></ul><ul><li>1- paralysis of the worm . </li></ul><ul><li>2- damaging the worm leading to partial digestion or rejection by immune mechanisms. </li></ul><ul><li>3- interfere with the metabolism of the worm . </li></ul><ul><li> * Worms or larvae live in tissues of host </li></ul><ul><li>body like muscles , viscera , menninges , </li></ul><ul><li>subcutaneous tissues. </li></ul>
  • 4. <ul><li>Adult filariae live in the lymphatics, connective tissue or mesentery of host and produce live embryos or microfilariae, which goes to blood stream. </li></ul><ul><li>They are ingested by mosquitoes or similar insects, they develop to larvae in 2ndry host and pass to mouth parts of insect and </li></ul><ul><li>re-injected to humans </li></ul>
  • 5. Ascaris lumbricoids ( common round worm)
  • 6. filariasis
  • 7. Hookworm
  • 8. Pinworm male ,female
  • 9. Tapeworm
  • 10. whipworm
  • 11. Dircrocoelium dendriticum
  • 12. Fasiola hepatica
  • 13. Tricuris tricura
  • 14. Trichinela spiralis
  • 15. elephantiasis
  • 16. Hydateid cyct
  • 17. cysticercosis
  • 18. ANTHELMINTIC DRUGS <ul><li>ALBENDAZOLE </li></ul><ul><li>B road spectrum oral anthelmintic </li></ul><ul><li>Drug of choice for treatment of hydatid disease and cysticercosis ,it is also used for the treatment of ascariasis ,tricurasis and strongyloidiasis, pinworm, hookworm </li></ul>
  • 19. Mechanism Of Action <ul><li>Inhibits microtubule synthesis by binding to β –tubulin. </li></ul><ul><li>Inhibits mitochondrial reductase causing reduced glucose transport.. Intestinal parasites are immobilized and die slowly. </li></ul><ul><li>larvicidal in hydatid ,cysticercosis , ascariasis and hook worm infections. </li></ul><ul><li>Ovicidal in ascariasis ,hookworm , trichuriasis </li></ul>
  • 20. Pharmacokinetics <ul><li>Benzimidazole carbamate </li></ul><ul><li>Administered orally , absorption increased with a fatty meal </li></ul><ul><li>M etabolized in the liver to the active metabolite albendazole sulfoxide </li></ul>
  • 21. Pharmacokinetics <ul><li>Plasma half life is 8-12 hours </li></ul><ul><li>sulfoxide is mostly protein bound distributes well to tissues and enters bile,CSF & hydatid cysts. </li></ul><ul><li>Metabolites are excreted in urine </li></ul>
  • 22. Clinical uses <ul><li>Used on empty stomach when used against intraluminal parasites but with a fatty meal when used against tissue parasites. </li></ul><ul><li>In ascariasis ,trichuriasis ,hookworm, pin worm infections : children over 2 years & adults (single dose 400mg, repeated for 2-3 day in heavy ascaris infection . For 2 wks for pin worm infection </li></ul><ul><li>2. Hydatid diseases: </li></ul><ul><li>drug of choice for medical therapy& adjunctive to surgical removal or aspiration of cysts. </li></ul>
  • 23. Albendazole (con’) <ul><li>Neurocysticercosis: </li></ul><ul><li>Used with corticosteroid to decrease the inflammation caused by dying organism and it also reduces the duration of course for 21 days </li></ul><ul><li>4. Other infections : Drug of choice in cutaneous and visceral larva migrans , intestinal capillariasis, giardiasis & taeniasis. </li></ul>
  • 24. Adverse Effects <ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>In short term(1-3 days) : Mild epigastric pain,diarrhea, nausea, headache & insomnia. </li></ul><ul><li>In long term use : for hydatid cyst and cysticercosis : abdominal pain, headache ,fever ,fatigue, alopecia , increased liver enzymes , pancytopenia. Blood counts and liver enzymes should be followed. </li></ul><ul><li>Not given during pregnancy, hypersensitive people to benzimidazole drugs & children under 2 years . </li></ul>
