Chemical composition and pharmacological properties1 ml of Alben® Forte contains albendazole - 50 mg and oxyclozanide - 37.5 mg (as active ingredients), as well as excipients.
Oxyclozanide (a component of the drug) with significant trematodocide properties has harmful effect on all development phases of fasciolae, paramphistomatides and dicrocoelia. Mechanism of oxyclozanide action includes phosphorylation damage, decreased activity of fumarate reductase and succinate dehydrogenase in trematodes causing paralysis and death of a worm.
Albendazole is active against mature and immature gastrointestinal and pulmonary roundworms, as well as against cestodes and mature trematodes. Ovocidic action of this active ingredient allows to lower contamination of pastures by worm eggs. Antihelmintic albendazole action is caused by disorder of carbohydrate metabolism and microtubular function in worms causing death and excretion of parasites.
