How does it work
A halogenated salicylanilide, razoxanide is used as a fasciolicide on cattle, sheep, goats, and horses. Rasfoxanide works by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation of flukes, thus resulting in decreased ATP levels and reduced glycogen content, as well as accumulating sucinate.
Applications. Or where it is used
The insecticides Closantel and Rafoxanide are widely used in the control of infestations in Hemonchus species and Fasciola species of sheep and cattle, as well as Estrus ovises in sheep. Animals across the spectrum are treated with niclosamide as an anticestode.
An invention relevant to medicine is a rafoxanide preparation and method of preparing it. The rafoxanide is prepared following the formula: 0.5% of tween, 0.5%-2% of citric acid, 0.5%-2% of sodium citrate, 5% of rafoxanide, 4%-10% of polyethylene glycol, and the balance of water. It is possible to store the rafoxanide preparation for a longer time. During the preparation, rafoxanide is uniformly distributed. The simple production process is economical as well.
Dosage of usage
Rafoxanide is an antiparasitic active ingredient used in veterinary medicine against internal parasites in livestock. Farming and household pests cannot be controlled with it. In chemical terms, it is a salicylanilide.
Rapoxanide works against a limited range of roundworms (mostly blood-sucking species), as well as flukes (e.g. Fasciola hepatica). Some myiasis can also be treated with it. Neither tapeworms nor external parasites are treated with it. It is used rarely in ruminants, including both injectables and drenches, often in conjunction with other anthelmintic agents. Swine, poultry, horses, and pets cannot be treated with it.
Below are some effects:
- Loss of appetite
- Visual disturbance
