Hetrazan, an anthelmintic agent does not resemble other antiparasitic compounds.
It is a synthetic organic compound which is highly specific for several common parasites.
Hetrazan Causes rapid disappearance of microfilaria of W.bancrofti,W.malayi and Loa loa from the blood of infected man , and of microfilaria of O.volvulus from skin .Microfilariae from nodules containing adult female worms,and from hydrocele are not eliminated. It kills adult worms of Loa loa and also presumably of W.bancrofti and W.malayi but not of O.volvulus.The mechanism of filaricidal action is unknown .The action on microfilariae is two fold : firstly to decrease muscular activity and thus immobilize the microfilaria more susceptible to destruction by host defense mechanisms.
Hetrazan causes rapid resolution of symptoms in tropical eosinophilia.
