Pharmacological properties

ATCvet: QР51 – antiprotozoals (QР51АJ01, diclazuril).

Diclazuril is an anticoccidial of the benzeneacetonitrile group. It acts against all eimeria species in poultry (Eimeria acervulina, Е. brunetti, Е. maxima, Е. mitis, Е. necatrix, Е. tenella, Е. adenoeides, Е. gallopavonis, Е. meleagrimitis etc.), eimeria in rabbits (Е. flavescens, Е. intestinalis, Е. magna, Е. perforans, Е. stiedaе, etc.), cattle, sheep, goats and swine, causing disorders in energetic metabolism processes of endogenous cycle of coccidia development. Asexual forms of endogenous cycle of eimeria development are the most sensitive to the drug.

Diclazuril is not accumulated in organs and tissues of animal bodies and does not cause any negative impact even in case of major overdosing (20-25 times of the recommended doses).
