Influence of the anthelmintic mebendazole on microtubules and intracellular organelle movement in nematode intestinal cells.

Abstract

The ultrastructural changes in the intestines of Ascaris suum and Syngamus trachea, induced by in vivo treatment of the hosts with the anthelmintic mebendazole, are reported. The primary site of drug action seemed to be the organelles involved in the secretory mechanism of the intestinal cells. The block in the transport of secretory granules and in the… (More)
