Mechanism of Action:

The molecular mode of action of salicylanilides, including closantel, is not completely elucidated. They all are uncouplers of the oxidative phosphorylation in the cell mitochondria, which disturbs the production of ATP, the cellular "fuel". This seems to occur through suppression of the activity of succinate dehydrogenase and fumarate reductase, two enzymes involved in this process. This impairs the parasites motility and probably other processes as well. It seems that closantel also disturbs the liquid and ion transport mechanisms in the parasites membranes.

Uses:

Closantel is a salicylaniline Antihelminthic, which exhibits a different anthelmintic spectrum and obvious toxicity in mammals. Closamide sodium is widely used in various infections of the above-mentioned parasitic diseases in cattle and sheep.
