Mechanism Of Action
Tanzol selectively blocks the glucose uptake by an adult helminthes in the intestine & their tissue dwelling larvae. Inhibition of glucose uptake leads to endogenous depletion of glycogen stored within the parasite. This in turn causes a decrease in the formation of adenosine triphosphate. By this mechanism, the drug slowly depletes the energy levels of the susceptible parasites.
