PHARMACOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS. Pyrantel pamoate – depolarizing muscle nerve blocker that paralyzes muscles of nematodes (mature larvae forms and 4 stage of development), which leads to their death and subsequent excretion of animals due to intestinal peristalsis. The substance is practically insoluble in water, so is hardly absorbed in the intestines of animals, providing prolonged action of the drug. Praziquantel – active substance that increases the penetration of cell membranes and outer casing of worms for calcium ions, causing its destruction, violation of metabolism, resistant muscle paralysis of parasites (cestodes and trematodes) and their death.
