Safety and Efficacy of Drug Combinations Against Trichuris Trichiura
This randomised, controlled, double-blinded clinical study investigates the safety and efficacy of albendazole (ALB), mebendazole (MBD) and ivermectin (IVM) separately, and ALB and MBD each in combination with IVM in the treatment of Trichuris trichiura in children aged 5-14 years.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment
albendazole, mebendazole, ivermectin, albendazole + ivermectin, mebendazole + ivermectin

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A benzimidazole broad-spectrum anthelmintic structurally related to MEBENDAZOLE that is effective against many diseases. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p38)
A mixture of mostly avermectin H2B1a (RN 71827-03-7) with some avermectin H2B1b (RN 70209-81-3), which are macrolides from STREPTOMYCES avermitilis. It binds glutamate-gated chloride channel to cause increased permeability and hyperpolarization of nerve and muscle cells. It also interacts with other CHLORIDE CHANNELS. It is a broad spectrum antiparasitic that is active against microfilariae of ONCHOCERCA VOLVULUS but not the adult form.
A benzimidazole that acts by interfering with CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM and inhibiting polymerization of MICROTUBULES.
Pregnancy Complications, Parasitic
The co-occurrence of pregnancy and parasitic diseases. The parasitic infection may precede or follow FERTILIZATION.
Lung Diseases, Parasitic
Infections of the lungs with parasites, most commonly by parasitic worms (HELMINTHS).

A prospective controlled trial to compare the efficacy and safety of 7-day albendazole, single dose ivermectin, and 2-single dose ivermectin in 72 patients with chronic strongyloidiasis wi...
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy and impact on growth of two drug treatments against intestinal worms in schoolchildren from a rural area of Guatemala. According to the Wor...

Anthelmintic resistance has emerged globally as a problem amongst nematode of livestock and has been particularly well documented in equine and small ruminants. There are no studies regarding the effi...
SUMMARYThe cyclooctadepsipeptide PF1022A derived from the fungus, Mycelia sterilia, is characterized by a broad spectrum of activity against different parasitic gastrointestinal nematodes of livestock...
The aim of the study is to understand the anti-Clonorchis sinensis properties of mebendazole and albendazole, and compare to praziquantel and tribendimidine. Two hundred and thirty rats were divided i...
Ivermectin exerts its anthelmintic effect by activating nematode Cys-loop glutamate-gated receptors. Here we show that a glycine residue at a specific transmembrane domain location is essential for hi...
To identify known drugs with previously unrecognized anti-cancer activity, we compiled and screened a library of such compounds to identify agents cytotoxic to leukemia cells. From these screens, we i...
