5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Anthelminthics (Benzimidazoles and related substances)
ATC code: QP52AC13

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Issued: December 2016
AN: 01700/2013

Page 3 of 4

Contains fenbendazole which is a member of the benzimidazole family of
anthelmintics and has been in veterinary use for a number of years. It acts against
parasites by disrupting the formation of microtubules by binding to tubulin in parasitic
intestinal cells hence preventing the absorption of glucose, and as a result the
parasites are gradually starved to death. Fenbendazole displays preference for
parasitic as opposed to mammalian tubulin; this appears to be due to the fact that
the formation of the parasitic tubulin-fenbendazole complex is more favourable
kinetically under physiological conditions than the mammalian complex.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars

Fenbendazole is only partly absorbed from the intestine and reaches maximum
plasma concentration in dogs 4 - 9 hours after oral administration.
Fenbendazole and its metabolites are distributed throughout the body but highest
concentrations are found in the liver.
Fenbendazole is metabolised mainly by enzymes of the cytochrome P-450 system in
the liver. The major oxidative metabolite is fenbendazole sulfoxide which is further
metabolised to fenbendazole sulfone.
Fenbendazole and its metabolites are predominantly excreted via the faeces.
