Histology improved in all patients after 6-8 months of GFD; therefore, refractory celiac disease could be excluded. One patient with Marsh II lesions was fully compliant to his diet but had mistakenly taken an antibiotic containing gluten. Two patients showed lactose malabsorption, one patient showed Giardia lamblia and one patient Ascaris lumbricoides infestation, and 10 patients showed small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) by lactulose H2-BT. We prescribed a diet without milk or fresh milk-derived foods to the patient with lactose malabsorption; we treated the patients with parasite infestation with mebendazole 500 mg/day for 3 days for 2 consecutive wk; and we treated the patients with SIBO with rifaximin 800 mg/day for 1 wk. The patients were re-evaluated 1 month after the end of drug treatment (or after starting lactose-free diet); at this visit all patients were symptom-free.

Fifteen patients with inoperable hydatid disease (Echinococcus granulosus) were treated with an initial 6-week high-dose mebendazole regimen with a follow-up ranging from 3-7 years. Ten of 15 patients showed both objective and clinical improvement, although two of these 10 relapsed 1-6 years after completing therapy. Simple, single cysts in the lung and liver showed the best response. Multiple, complex cysts and bone cysts showed little or no objective improvement. One patient developed reversible neutropenia. Overall results were no better than those obtained by others with smaller doses.

One a- and 2 beta-tubulin isotypes (isotypes 1 and 2) from the parasitic nematode Haemonchus contortus were artificially expressed in E. coli and purified to obtain tubulin that was capable of polymerizing into microtubules. Binding of [14C] mebendazole (MBZ), a benzimidazole compound, to each individual unpolymerized isotype and to microtubules polymerized from recombinant alpha- and beta-tubulin was assessed and Kd and Bmax values determined. Mebendazole bound to the individual tubulin isotypes with a stoichiometry of 1:1. Binding occurred with highest affinity to alpha-tubulin followed by beta-tubulin isotype 2 and beta-tubulin isotype 1 indicating that alpha-tubulin may play a role in benzimidazole binding to microtubules. Upon polymerization of alpha- and beta-tubulin isotype 2 into microtubules the stoichiometry of binding increased to 2:1 (mebendazole : tubulin) while binding affinity remained the same. Mebendazole binding to alpha/beta-isotype 1 microtubules remained unchanged following polymerization. The increase in the number of benzimidazole receptors on alpha/beta-isotype 2 microtubules suggests the formation of a new benzimidazole receptor upon polymerization.

A parasitological and immuno-hematological study was undertaken simultaneously in fifty South-East asian refugees at the time of their arrival in France. --in this series the frequency of individuals having a P2 erythrocyte phenotype is 80%. --54 % of these immigrants were found to be carriers of Clonorchis sinensis, a parasite rarely found in Europe. --in 40,7 % of these subjects infested by Clonorchis sinensis, the following properties were disclosed concerning the P1 allo-antibody: slow-P1 red cell agglutination at 22 degrees C, no hemolysis of P1 red cells in vitro, IgM antibody, in weak titers. The immuno-hematological study of the immuno-serums with respect to distomian antigens coupled with adsorption-elution using P1+++ red cells shows a close immunological relationship between the antibody of parasite origin and the anti-P1 allo-antibody.

Mebendazole, a benzimidazole carbamate compound, is currently in use for human medical practice against soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH) and enterobiasis. However, it has been demonstrated that its spectrum of activity is broad and goes beyond those infections. Several studies provide evidence that this drug, taken at higher doses than used for STH and enterobiasis, could be sufficiently effective on some protozoa, nematodes and cestodes.

Many benzimidazoles are known inducers of cytochromes P4501A (CYP1A) in laboratory animals and cell lines. As flubendazole and mebendazole are benzimidazole anthelmintics often used in a pheasant, in the present study an effect of these drugs in primary cultures of pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) hepatocytes was investigated. After 48 h incubation of the hepatocytes with the benzimidazoles (0.2-5 microM), CYP1A activities -- ethoxyresorufin O-deethylation (EROD) and methoxyresorufin O-demethylation (MROD) activities were measured and the CYP1A protein levels were determined by Western blotting. None of the tested benzimidazoles influenced the CYP1A protein content. No pharmacologically significant enhancement of CYP1A after exposure of the hepatocytes to flubendazole and mebendazole was found. Inhibition of the EROD/MROD activities caused by both tested substances was observed only at the highest concentration (5 microM). From a point of view of CYP1A induction or inhibition, the treatment of pheasants by both anthelmintics tested seems to be safe. Our study demonstrates the inter-species differences in CYP1A inducibility and the importance of induction/inhibition studies on target animals.

Thirty adult horses were used to compare the toxicity and cholinesterase (ChE) inhibition of various dosages of a combination anthelmintic, trichlorfon + mebendazole. Single oral doses of up to 5 times the effective dosage (39.7 mg of trichlorfon and 8.8 mg of mebendazole/kg of body weight) did not result in deaths. Horses given a placebo and horses treated at the recommended dosage rate showed few or no side effects, whereas horses given higher dosages showed dosage-related increases in the severity of clinical signs of organophosphate toxicosis. Dosage-related inhibition of erythrocyte ChE activity was also detected. A 2nd treatment of some of the horses at the recommended dosage 35 days after the initial treatment resulted in minimal or no side effects, despite the fact that erythrocyte ChE activity was still depressed before the repeat treatment. Changes indicating organ toxicosis were not detected in any of the clinical pathologic determinations in any of the dosage groups.

Decline in STH prevalence alone, in the absence of improved Hb status, produced no evidence of impact on concentration levels or educational test scores.
Cytokine (interferon (IFN)-gamma, interleukin (IL)-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-10) gene transcription in response to filarial antigens was determined in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of Brugia malayi-infected Mastomys coucha in the course of untreated and chemotherapeutically abbreviated infections. Transcript levels in infected untreated animals suggest particular time courses for the various cytokines with ongoing parasite development and differing efficacies of female, male, microfilarial, and L3 antigens in inducing cytokine gene transcription. Gene transcription of both of Th1- and Th2-associated cytokines were initiated in the course of the infection in a manner that does not fit in a simple Th1-Th2 paradigm. IFN-gamma and IL-4 gene transcripts prevailed during prepatency. In case of the other cytokine genes considered in the study, transcription in general peaked around beginning of patency. During the phase of increasing microfilaremia (approximately 120-180 days p. i.) cytokine gene transcription was generally decreased. Later on, when the parasitemia had leveled off, except IFN-gamma, transcript levels often tended to increase. In chemotherapeutically treated animals, the outcome varied with the different efficacies of the drugs employed. The highly microfilaricidal cyclodepsipeptide BAY 44-4400 eliminated circulating microfilariae and partially sterilized adult worms without killing them. This kind of treatment hardly affected cytokine responses. In contrast, the therapy with Flubendazole, a selectively macrofilaricidal benzimidazole, and particularly the application of CGP 20376, a highly efficient microfilaricidal and macrofilaricidal benzthiazole, resulted in enhanced transcription of the Th1-associated IFN-gamma and IL-2 genes as well as of the Th2-associated IL-5 gene 2-3 months after treatment. IL-10 gene transcription seemed transiently increased after 1 month. There was no effect of any treatment on the IL-4 gene transcription.

Intervention is needed to improve the economic access to key essential medicines for children indicated in the treatment of chronic diseases.
Robust reference values for fecal egg count reduction (FECR) rates of the most widely used anthelmintic drugs in preventive chemotherapy (PC) programs for controlling soil-transmitted helminths (STHs; Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, and hookworm) are still lacking. However, they are urgently needed to ensure detection of reduced efficacies that are predicted to occur due to growing drug pressure. Here, using a standardized methodology, we assessed the FECR rate of a single oral dose of mebendazole (MEB; 500 mg) against STHs in six trials in school children in different locations around the world. Our results are compared with those previously obtained for similarly conducted trials of a single oral dose of albendazole (ALB; 400 mg).

Mebendazole, albendazole, levamisole and thiabendazole are well known as active drugs against several nematode species, and against cestodes as well, when the first two drugs are considered. None of the drugs have proven activity, however, against trematodes. We tested the effect of these drugs on the fecal shedding of schistosome eggs and the recovering of adult schistosomes, after portal perfusion in Schistosoma mansoni experimentally infected mice. Balb/c mice infected with 80 S. mansoni cercariae were divided into three groups, each in turn subdivided into four other groups, for each tested drug. The first group was treated with each one of the studied drugs 25 days after S. mansoni infection; the second group was submitted to treatment with each one of the drugs 60 days after infection. Finally, the third group, considered as control, received no treatment. No effect upon fecal shedding of S. mansoni eggs and recovering of schistosomes after portal perfusion was observed when mice were treated with either mebendazole or albendazole. Mice treated with either levamisole or thiabendazole, on the other hand, showed a significant reduction in the recovering of adult schistosomes after portal perfusion, mainly when both drugs were given during the schistosomula evolution period, i.e., 25 days after cercariae penetration, probably due to unspecific immunomodulation.

Long-term chemotherapy of human alveolar echinococcosis with benzimidazole compounds (mebendazole, albendazole) has been shown to be primarily parasitostatic, but its curative (parasitocidal) efficacy is debated. This article reports on a 67-year-old male patient with non-resectable alveolar echinococcosis of the liver who had been continuously treated for 13 years with mebendazole (approximately 45-48 mg/kg body weight per day) and who was closely monitored according to a specific protocol. At the age of 80 years the patient died of oesophageal variceal bleeding. During treatment the hepatic lesion had decreased markedly in size in association with progression of perifocal calcification. At autopsy, a well-demarcated, necrotic, partially calcified, parasite-induced lesion of the right liver lobe and secondary biliary cirrhosis were found. Remnants of parasite tissue obtained from the periphery of the lesion showed a small-cystic structure, but it was not viable, as evidenced by transplantation of tissue blocks to rodents. The case is suggestive for a parasitocidal efficacy of mebendazole treatment carried out for 13 years, and is discussed in context with conflicting literature data.

The effects of the anthelmintics febantel and mebendazole on Heterakis spumosa were investigated by means of transmission and scanning electron microscopy. Ultramorphological changes were only seen in the intestinal cells. Microtubules disappeared and granules were absent from the terminal web 12 h after treatment with either febantel or mebendazole, and up to 72 h after treatment, the number and size of autophagic vacuoles increased. Moreover the parasites became sluggish and were frequently rolled up like spiral springs. Destruction to microtubules and neurotoxic influences are discussed as possible modes of action.
