LEVAMISOLE AVICO Powder

Composition: Each 1 gm contains:
Levamisole Hydrachloride 118mg (equivalent to levamisole 100 gm)
Properties:
Levamisole Hydrochloride (Levamisole avico Liquid) is a highly acceptable antinematodal drug because of its broad range of activity in a large number of hosts (sheep, cattle, horse, chicken, dog, and cat). Major advantages of levamisole are that it is effective against nematodes of the lungs and GI tract and can be administered to the skin as a pour-on or by SC injection. It may also be administered in feed (in a suspension dosage form) or as powder, bolus, or gel.
Mode of Action Levamisole hydrochloride has a paralyzing action on nematodes. The paralysis is due to sustained muscle contraction. Levamisole acts as a ganglion stimulant (cholinomimetic). This conclusion is supported by the fact that levamisole-induced contractions of Ascaris suum are blocked by the autonomic ganglion blocking agent's mecamylamine and pempidine.
Indication:
LEVAMISOLE AVICO is for the treatment of diseases pulmonary and gastrointestinal caused by nematodes sensitive to levamisole, both adult and larvae.
Levamisole has a wide spectrum effect against round worms which infect stomach, omasum, GI tract and lungs of cattle, sheep and goats, also against Ascaridia galli and Heterakis gallinae of poultry.
LEVAMISOLE AVICO affects adult and immature worms and restores immunity which was affected by chronic diseases. Recent studies proved that levamisole improves immunity and can be used to increase immune response in cases of Gumboro disease, chronic disease and vaccination with varal vaccines. Levamisole is levo isomer of Tertamisole and considered to be more safe.
