Each 1 ml contains: Imidocarb
dipropionate 120 mg ( as Imidocarb 85 mg)
Imidocarb dipropionate is a
substituted carbanilide, used as an antiprotozoan treatment for the control of
Babesia spp. Little is known about the mode-of-action of imidocarb
dipropionate. It appears that imidocarb acts directly on the parasite, causing
alteration in number and size of nuclei and in morphology (vacuolation) of the
cytoplasm. The antiprotozoan activity is derived from the carbanilide acting on
glycolyis of the parasite. This is the result of this class of drugs giving
rise to hypoglycaemia in the host. Babesia as well as many other parasites like
trypanosomes depend upon host glucose for aerobic glycolysis. There is also a
selective blocking effect on the replication of the quinetoplastic DNA of the
