Pharmacology

Levamisole HCl acts by interfering carbohydrate metabolism of nematodes by inhibiting the production of succinate dehydrogenase. Inhibition of this enzyme causes complete and irreversible muscular paralysis of worm. Recently Levamisole hydrochloride draws much attention for its immune modulator properties. This drug corrects immunologic imbalance by modifying activities of T lymphocytes and phagocytes and thus it has the greatest benefit in the immunologically depressed animals as well as birds. The tissue concentration of levamisole persists for 5 days.
