An intervention was carried out in a traditional fishing village in north-east Brazil where the population of 605 is heavily affected by ectoparasites and enteroparasites. The prevalence of intestinal helminths was determined by serial stool examination and the prevalence of parasitic skin diseases by clinical inspection. A total of 525 people out of a target population of 576 were treated at baseline. The majority of these were treated with ivermectin (200 microg/kg with a second dose given after 10 days). If ivermectin was contraindicated, participants were treated with albendazole or mebendazole for intestinal helminths or with topical deltamethrin for ectoparasites. Follow-up examinations were performed at 1 month and 9 months after treatment.

Gastrointestinal infestation with the parasite Enterobius vermicularis is common in humans and is usually harmless. Anal pruritus is the most characteristic symptom, but the parasites can cause severe abdominal pain mimicking appendicitis. Early recognition can prevent an unnecessary appendectomy.
Critical tests were done on 24 naturally parasitized horses to compare the antiparasitic activity of an oral paste preparation of mebendazole and trichlorfon with that of the marketed powder formulation. Each formulation was administered at the recommended dosages of 8.8 mg of mebendazole and 40 mg of trichlorfon/kg of body weight. Efficacy of the paste formulation ranged from 97.7% to 100% against 2nd- and 3rd-stage Gasterophilus spp, adult Strongylus vulgaris, S edentatus, Parascaris equorum, small strongyles; and larval and adult forms of Oxyuris equi. Adverse effects were generally limited to slight softening of the feces. Mild and transient restlessness or sweating were also observed in 2 of 12 horses treated with the paste formulation. The toxic effects of the paste, administered at 2.2 times the therapeutic dose, were examined in 6 horses and compared with the effects of a nonmedicated paste, administered in similar volumes to 6 other horses. Drug-related changes were not detected in clinical chemical analyses, hematologic values, or liver function tests. Transient clinical signs of organophosphate toxicosis (primarily the passage of loose feces) and prolonged inhibition of erythrocyte cholinesterase activity were evident within 1 hour after drug treatment. These effects were similar to those reported for the 2.2 X dose of marketed powder formulation.

have shown a non-significant difference in CR 96.7%vs. 100% and ERR of 99.3%vs. 100.0% for albendazole and mebendazole groups respectively (P>0.05). In-vitro egg culture has shown trends of decrease in the percentage of the unfertilized eggs and in ≥ 2 cell eggs in both treatment groups (P<0.05). The embryonated eggs from the albendazole groups has shown an increase from 7.3% on week-1 to 13.8% on week-4, whilst the mebendazole group has shown a constant increase during the whole 4 weeks of culture from 7.5% to 28.3% (P<0.01).

Flubendazole, an injectable benzimidazole drug, was compared with diethylcarbamazine (DEC) in a prospective double-blind study of the treatment of onchocerciasis. Nineteen Mexican men were randomly assigned to receive either flubendazole 750 mg intramuscularly once a week for 5 doses, or DEC 100 mg twice daily for 14 days, and they were then followed up for 12 months. Major systemic side-effects during the first 3 weeks were common in the DEC group but not in the flubendazole group in which there was considerable inflammation at the injection site instead. Ocular complications (limbitis, punctate keratitis, and uveitis) were also common in the DEC group, whereas in the flubendazole group they consisted only of one new punctate opacity at day 4 in one subject. One DEC patient also had several new areas of chorioretinal changes on day 2 but these had disappeared by 2 months. Skin microfilaria counts fell rapidly in the DEC group, but returned to the pretreatment levels. In contrast, skin microfilaria counts in the flubendazole group fell slowly, but by 6 and 12 months were lower than in the DEC group (at 12 months 0.2 vs 7.3 mf/mg, p less than 0.001). In addition, by 6 months none of the flubendazole subjects had intracorneal microfilariae, and only one had microfilariae in the anterior chamber, whereas the numbers of intraocular microfilariae in the DEC group had returned to pretreatment levels. The results suggest that flubendazole is safer and more effective than DEC in the treatment of onchocerciasis.

Thirteen patients had spinal cord injury at the moment of surgery. The neurologic damage recovered only in 1 case. Repeated curettage was necessary in 13 cases: in 12 of them because of recurrence and in 1 because of surgical wound infection. In 6 cases of recurrence, there was also chronic wound infection. At last follow-up, 17 patients were free of disease.

Authors present three cases of peritoneal hydatidosis, two of which are due to spontaneous rupture of hepatic hydatid cysts and the other due to operative rupture of ovarian hydatid cyst. A dose of 1 g./day of mebendazole was administered for 11 months with 30 day break periods every three months. Mebendazole has proved effective in the treatment of secondary echinococcosis. In authors judgement this may be an effective treatment for peritoneal spreading if mebendazole is used at an early stage since they have verified the absence of dissemination in one of the cases and an inactive dissemination in other one. If treatment is applied later, regression is achieved too, but more slowly. Immunological and ecographical results are reported in detail as well as surgical and pathologic findings. A cautious interpretation of these preliminary results is advised since data on long-term results are lacking.
Left ventricular hydatid cyst was diagnosed in a 4-year-old boy by echocardiography. The patient did not respond to oral mebendazole therapy and had a sudden death, probably due to rupture of the cyst. The occurrence of cardiac hydatid cyst and its life threatening complications are rare and have not been reported in children.

Mebendazole was tested for its efficacy in individual treatment and mass control of Trichuris trichiura infection in Korea. The results were as follows: 1. The efficacy of mebendazole in 430 cases 3 weeks after treatment with mebendazole(100-1,200 mg) was not so satisfactory (15.0-64.0 and 24.6-95.2% in cure and egg reduction rates respectively). But it was observed that the higher the total dose of the drug the better the efficacy. 2. The egg positive rate of the inhabitants in mass control programme by 600 mg mebendazole decreased form 40.0 to 5.6 % during one year, May 1982-May 1983, by repeated blanket mass chemotherapy every 3 months (in conventional regimen), while the decrease was less marked or unrecognizable in 3-month (signle or two divided doses), 6-month, 12-month interval and placebo control groups. From the results, it was concluded that, although mebendazole was not highly effective in individual treatment of T. trichiura infection, it was fairly useful in mass cotrol, by repeated mass chemotherapy every 3 months.

A high-performance capillary electrophoretic method for determination of five benzimidazoles (thiabendazole, albendazole, fenbendazole, mebendazole, oxfendazole) in animal feeds was developed. Separation was carried out in an 80.5 cm x 75 microm id fused-silica uncoated capillary and injected by hydrodynamic injection (35 mbar x 8 s) at a wavelength detection of 295 nm. The drugs were completely resolved in 50 mmol/L citric acid buffer (pH 1.9) with 30 kV at a temperature of 25 degrees C. Linear range was 1-80 microg/mL; limits of detection for the analytes were less than 2 mg/kg; the overall recoveries for benzimidazoles were >73%, with coefficients of variation below 10%.

Surgery is the therapy of choice in the treatment of infestations with Echinococcus (E.) granulosus and E. multilocularis. Chemotherapy with mebendazole, a benzimidazole derivative, introduced 1976 in the therapy of human echinococcosis, showed good results only in cases of infestation with E. multilocularis. In the cases of liver cysts, caused by E. granulosus, the treatment with mebendazole did not succeed as well. Between 1977 and 1986, 44 patients, suffering from infestations with E. granulosus, were referred to the Clinical Department of the Bernhard-Nocht-Institut. In a retrospective study, the data of seven patients had been evaluated: They had not undergone surgery because of the size of the lesions or because they refused the operative treatment. Receiving mebendazole as the only therapy, they had been treated and followed up for more than four years. Mebendazole was given in a dosage of 50 mg/kg body weight in repeated cycles of one month's duration followed by a treatment-free interval of two months. After a median of 55 months (median 13 effective treatment months) six of the seven patients presented a therapeutical success as demonstrated by ultrasound and computed tomography. The cystic lesions had dissolved or decreased in size considerably. One case showed unaltered findings of the liver lesion. Mebendazole treatment was well tolerated by all patients. If the size of the cystic liver-lesions excludes a curative operative treatment or if the patient refuses surgery, the indication for chemotherapy with mebendazole is given.

Three benzimidazole compounds thiabendazole (TBZ), carbendazim (MBC) and mebendazole (MEB) were analysed with the in vitro cytochalasin-B micronucleus test on human lymphocytes. TBZ was tested in isolated lymphocyte cultures and MBC and MEB were tested in both isolated lymphocyte and whole blood cultures. TBZ was tested up to 300 microM with and without S9-mix. Although signs of toxicity, without S9, were observed by a decrease in the division index at 300 microM, an increase in the frequency of micronucleated binucleates was not found with or without S9. MBC and MEB induced a statistically significant concentration-dependent increase in the micronucleus frequency. The effective concentration range for MEB (0.3-1.5 microM) was ten times lower than for MBC (5-25 microM). By means of fluorescence in situ hybridization with a 30 nucleotide oligomer of the alpha centromeric regions, common for all chromosomes, on the induced micronuclei MBC and MEB were found to induce a significant increase of centromere positive micronuclei in a dose-dependent manner. MBC and MEB are poorly soluble in water and therefore have a low bioavailability in vivo. However, increased micronucleus frequencies were found in this in vitro micronucleus study at doses comparable to in vivo plasma levels in mice and should, therefore, not be neglected in the risk evaluation of those compounds.

Patent infections of adult dogs with Toxocara canis induced by transplantation of immature, intestinal stages were examined for their suitability for testing of anthelmintics. Each of 5 dogs were infected four times by transplantation of 80 immature, intestinal stages of Toxocara canis. The dogs were treated with various anthelmintics of well established efficacy (pyrantel, nitroscanate, mebendazole, piperazine) 20 dpi. All anthelmintics tested showed the same efficacy as had been assessed earlier by treatment of dogs infected prenatally with Toxocara canis.

There were 3,280 households in 112 clusters representing 33,993 people. Most (92.1%) guardians of eligible children had heard about the campaign, the primary sources being health workers (33.7%), neighbours (26.2%), and radio (22.0%). Of eligible children, 82.4% received mebendazole, 83.8% received vitamin A, and 75.4% received LLINs. Almost all (91.4%) LLINs received during the campaign remained in the household; of those not remaining, 74.4% had been given away and none were reported sold. At least one insecticide-treated net (ITN) was present in 82.3% of all households, 89.2% of households with a child < 5 years and 57.5% of households without a child < 5 years. Just over half (52.4%) of ITNs had been received during the campaign. Considering possible indicators of universal coverage, 39.8% of households owned at least one ITN per two people, 21.6% owned at least one ITN per sleeping space and 34.7% of the general population slept under an ITN the night before the survey. In addition, 45.6% of children < 5 years, and 49.2% of pregnant women had slept under an ITN.
Delineate the feasibility of simultaneous, dual selective "targeted" chemotherapeutic delivery and determine if this molecular strategy can promote higher levels anti-neoplastic cytotoxicity than if only one covalent immunochemotherapeutic is selectively "targeted" for delivery at a single membrane associated receptor over-expressed by chemotherapeutic-resistant mammary adenocarcinoma.

The hydatid cyst is an endemic zoonosis in Spain. The central nervous system is seldom affected, the hydatid cyst in cerebellum being very rare. A patient with hydatid cyst affecting the vermis and right cerebellar hemisphere is presented. The case is described and discussed. The use of CT scan is encouraged as the most worthwhile election of diagnosis techniques. We highlight the need for very careful surgical treatment, preserving the hydatid cyst complete, to avoid relapses and to prevent the change of a benign disease to a chronic one with very high mortality.

All four treated pademelons sampled at 5 days developed severe leucopenia and neutropenia, moderate lymphopenia, thrombocytopenia, eosinopenia and monocytopenia, as well as bone marrow aplasia within 5 to 11 days after the first mebendazole dose. Four pademelons died unexpectedly or became ill and were euthanased 5 to 11 days after the first dose while the other animal recovered after 5 days of illness. Necropsy revealed systemic infection with opportunistic enteric bacteria, non-suppurative inflammation in tissues, haemorrhage and ulceration of the gastrointestinal tract.
Hydatid disease due to Taenia echinococcus involves bone in about 1% of all cases. The spine is involved in about 50% of cases. Neural compression is common in the form of paraplegia or nerve root compression. The prognosis with spinal involvement is generally regarded as very poor and often likened to that of spinal cancer. Four cases of spinal hydatid with neural involvement are presented. Three were treated by anterior spinal decompression and all four were treated with mebendazole. The results show good neural recovery and it is concluded that the prognosis is not as dismal as it was formerly thought to be.

Pyrosequencing assays were developed and evaluated for detecting the TTC or TAC SNP at codon 200 in beta-tubulin in A. lumbricoides and T. trichiura. Genomic DNA from individual worms, eggs isolated from individual adult worms or from fecal samples with known treatment history and origin, were sequenced at beta-tubulin by pyrosequencing, and genotypes were confirmed by conventional sequencing. The assays were applied to adult worms from a benzimidazole-naïve population in Kenya. Following this, these assays were applied to individual worms and pooled eggs from people in East Africa (Uganda and Zanzibar) and Central America (Panama) where mass anthelmintic drug programs had been implemented. All A. lumbricoides samples were TTC. However, we found 0.4% homozygous TAC/TAC in T. trichiura worms from non-treated people in Kenya, and 63% of T. trichiura egg pools from treated people in Panama contained only TAC.

The Trichuris Dysentery Syndrome (Ramsey, 1962) is an insidious, chronic condition which has clinical features similar to Crohn's ileocolitis and ulcerative colitis, diseases similarly associated with growth retardation. The attained heights and weights of 19 children at the time of diagnosis of intens, -2.4 Standard Deviation (Z) scores from the Tanner-Whitehouse median with weight, adjusted for height-age, -1.3 Z. We present data on the growth velocities of 11 of the children in the half-year following worm expulsion by mebendazole. These children returned to their home environments without food supplementation or close follow-up, but showed an average height velocity of +5.5 Z and weight velocity (for height-age) of +2.4 Z. Of 8 children with unequivocal height spurts only 3 had any weight spurt. We suggest that the pattern of catch-up growth points to the existence of some specific link between allergy or inflammation in the lower intestinal tract and suppression of linear growth, rather than to stunting due to general deprivation and undernutrition.

The effect of flubendazole (FLU) therapy on in vitro FLU biotransformation and the activities of selected biotransformation enzymes were investigated in male and female lambs. Four experimental groups were used: control (untreated) ewes and rams and FLU-treated ewes and rams (orally, 15 mg/kg per day, for three consecutive days). Subcellular fractions were prepared from liver and intestinal mucosa 24 h after the final dosage was administered. Activities of cytochromes P450 (CYP), flavine monooxygenases (FMO), carbonyl reducing enzymes, UDP-glucuronosyl transferase (UGT) and glutathione S-transferase were tested. Significant gender differences were observed for FMO-mediated activity (2-fold higher in ram lambs) and UGT activity (up to 30% higher in ewe lambs), but no gender differences were observed in FLU metabolism. FLU-treatment of lambs moderately changed the activities of some CYPs, FMO, and UGT in liver microsomes. In vitro FLU reduction was not altered in the liver, but was slightly higher in the small intestine of FLU pre-treated lambs. This correlated with the higher carbonyl reductase activities measured in the gut mucosa of these animals.
