MECHANISM OF ACTION

Diethylcarbamazine is an anthelmintic that is used in the treatment of lymphatic filariasis. Diethylcarbamazine alters the microfilariae membrane so that they are readily phagocytosed by tissue fixed monocytes, but not by circulating phagocytes. It is active against the microfilariae and adult worms of W. bancrofti, B. malayi, B. timori and Loa loa but only against the microfilariae of O. volvulus. It is also used in treatment of toxocariasis. Repeated courses may be necessary.
