Effect of flubendazole on Cysticercus cellulosae in pigs

Effect of flubendazole on Cysticercus cellulosae in pigs

American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 30(1): 135-138

The effect of flubendazole on Cysticercus cellulosae was tested in 15 pigs. In doses o 8.3 mg/kg body weight or more daily for 10 days the drug was lethal to the cysticerci, causing both macroscopic and microscopic morphological alterations. An in vitro test showed 0% viability of cysticerci in most of the treated pigs, whereas in 90-100% of 11 control pigs they were viable.
