Therap.Cat : Nitazoxanide is an Antiprotozoal.
Nitazoxanide is a synthetic benzamide with antiprotozoal activity. Nitazoxanide exerts its antiprotozoal activity by interfering with the pyruvate ferredoxin/flavodoxin oxidoreductase dependent electron transfer reaction, which is essential to anaerobic energy metabolism.
Nitazoxanide is an antimicrobial with activity against several parasitic worms and protozoa that is used predominantly in the United States in treatment of giardiasis and cryptosporidiosis.
