Twiga Nitroxynil is an injectable anthelmintic that is effective against liver flukes (adults & immatures >8 weeks old) and a few gastrointestinal roundworms (e.g. Haemonchus spp, Bunostomum phlebotomum, Parafilaria bovicola and Oesophagostomum radiatum). It is also active against triclabendazole resistant Fasciola hepatica and myiases caused by the sheep nasal bot fly (Oestrus ovis). The main pharmacological action of nitroxynil, is fasciolicidal. The mechanism of action is due to uncoupling of oxidative phosphorylation in the cell mitochondria. Nitroxynil is mainly excreted in bile and a small part in urine and feaces.
