Anthelmintic properties of flubendazole against Dipetalonema viteae in jirds



Anthelmintic properties of flubendazole against Dipetalonema viteae in jirds



Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 74(6): 829



Twenty-two jirds (Meriones unguiculatus) infected with Dipetalonema viteae were treated with flubendazole at 100 mg/kg body-weight subcutaneously on 5 consecutive days beginning 6, 20, 27, 42, or 48 days after the inoculation of 80 infective larvae. At autopsy the worms were all dead (or absent) except for 3 moribund females in 2 jirds treated after 48 days. In 11 untreated control jirds, 12% of the inoculated larvae had developed. Clearly flubendazole kills the developing and adult worms of D. viteae.
