Risk Of Convulsions

Bendamen

Bendamen is a benzimidazole carbamate with a broad range of anthelmintic activity. 1,2,64,65 It is active against the larvae and adults of E. vermicularis, A. lumbricoides, T. trichiura, N. americanus and A. duodenale. It is ovicidal for Ascaris and Trichuris spp. It is less effective than thiabendazole against S. stercoralis. Bendamen has been used at high doses and for long periods in the treatment of C. philippinensis. It can also be used for infections caused by Angiostrongylus cantonensis, Angiostrongylus costaricensis, Toxocara canis and Trichostrongylus spp. The drug has activity against adult Trichinella spiralis, with some activity against larval forms, and it is currently recommended in the treatment of trichinosis.

Bendamen is also effective in the treatment of certain types of filariasis; it is considered the drug of choice against Mansonella perstans (diethylcarbamazine is ineffective) and has been shown to have efficacy against L. loa, O. volvulus and Dracunculus medinensis infections. The drug has activity against T. saginata, T. solium and Hymenolepis nana, although praziquantel is more effective. Although Bendamen does not eradicate echinococcal infection, the drug prevents progression of existing cysts and the development of new cysts when administered in high dose for a prolonged period. Bendamen has largely been replaced by albendazole for echinococcosis.

Bendamen acts by binding parasite tubulin, thus blocking microtubule assembly and interfering with glucose absorption. Susceptible helminths become paralyzed and depleted of energy stores, but death and clearance of the worms from the gastrointestinal tract can take days. Bendamen, formulated as 100 mg tablets, has low water solubility and is poorly absorbed. It is 95% protein-bound in plasma and undergoes rapid and extensive first-pass metabolism in the liver. Thus, systemic bioavailability is low, accounting not only for its poor tissue levels and relative lack of usefulness in extraintestinal infections, but also for its low rate of side effects.

Abdominal pain and diarrhea may occur after Bendamen administration. The drug also has been reported to prompt the migration of adult Ascaris spp. into the mouth and nose. At high doses, reversible bone marrow suppression with neutropenia, alopecia, allergic skin reactions, hepatitis, vertigo and oligospermia occur rarely.

Precautions and Contraindications

Bendamen is contraindicated in patients who are hypersensitive to the drug.
