Zipyran Tablets / Antiparasitics
Praziquantel 50 mg
Treatment of infestations caused by the following cestodes: Echinococcus spp., Taenia spp., Mesocestoides spp.
Praziquantel is an anthelmintic effective against a number of cestodes. It causes severe damage to the parasite integument, making it more permeable to the excessive loss of glucose and facilitating the attack of the proteolytic enzymes. At the same time, it acts on the motility and the “anchoring” organs of the cestode, inducing a spastic paralysis.
Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.
