Thiabendazole Pharmacology

Thiabendazole is a fungicide and parasiticide. Thiabendazole is also a chelating agent, which means that it is used medicinally to bind metals in cases of metal poisoning, such as lead poisoning, mercury poisoning or antimony poisoning. Thiabendazole is vermicidal and/or vermifugal against Ascaris lumbricoides ("common roundworm"), Strongyloides stercoralis (threadworm), Necator americanus, Ancylostoma duodenale (hookworm), Trichuris trichiura (whipworm), Ancylostoma braziliense (dog and cat hookworm), Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati (ascarids), and Enterobius vermicularis (pinworm). Thiabendazole also suppresses egg and/or larval production and may inhibit the subsequent development of those eggs or larvae which are passed in the feces.

Thiabendazole Absorption

Rapidly absorbed and peak plasma concentration is reached within 1 to 2 hours after the oral administration of a suspension. Some systemic absorption may occur from topical preparations applied to the skin.

Thiabendazole side effects and Toxicity

Overdosage may be associated with transient disturbances of vision and psychic alterations. The oral LD 50 is 3.6 g/kg, 3.1 g/kg and 3.8 g/kg in the mouse, rat, and rabbit respectively.
