The aim of the present study is to explore the possibility to increase the efficacy of mebendazole (MBZ) against secondary cysts of Echinococcus granulosus harbored in mice by augmenting the solubility and bioavailability of the drug. Firstly, the saturated solubility of MBZ in nine kinds of oil was determined by high performance liquid chromatography(More)
This scoping review analyzes the research gaps of three diseases: schistosomiasis japonica, malaria and echinococcosis. Based on available data in the P.R. China, we highlight the gaps between control capacity and prevalence levels, and between diagnostic/drug development and population need for treatment at different stages of the national control(More)
Echinococcus granulosus is a cestode parasite. The metacestode stage causes cystic echinococcosis (CE) mainly in the human liver and lung. Current chemotherapy against CE is based on mebendazole and albendazole. However, benzimidazoles result in a low cure rate or are ineffective in many patients; therefore, novel compounds for the treatment of this disease(More)
Cystic echinococcosis is a serious zoonotic infection worldwide caused by metacestodes of Echinococcus gruanulosus. Mebendazole and albendazole are the only two drugs used in the treatment of this disease with cure rates only about 30% due to the poor oral absorption. Thus an alternative treatment for this disease is needed. A mebendazole oily suspension(More)
