The mechanism of action of pyrantel pamoate is to block neuromuscular transmission, impair the permeability of cell membranes and inhibition of cholinesterase, which leads to paralysis and death of the parasite. The maximum concentration of pyrantel pamoate in the blood plasma is observed after 2-4 hours. Pyrantel pamoate is excreted from the body with feces and urine within 24 hours.
The mechanism of action of praziquantel is based on impaired glucose transport and microtubular function in cestodes, inhibition of fumarate reductase activity and ATP synthesis, increased permeability of cell membranes and impaired muscle innervation. Praziquantel is rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, its maximum plasma concentration is reached after 30-60 minutes. It is excreted from the body mainly in the urine within 24 hours.
The mechanism of action of the ivermectin, which is part of the drug, is its effect on the magnitude of the current of chlorine ions through the membranes of the nerve and muscle cells of the parasite. The main targets are glutamate-sensitive chlorine channels, as well as gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors. A change in the current of chlorine ions disrupts the conduction of nerve impulses, which leads to paralysis and death of the parasite. The maximum concentration of ivermectin in blood plasma is observed 9 hours after oral administration. Ivermectin is excreted from the body mainly with bile, feces and partly with urine.
