PHARMACOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS. The spectrum of activity of piperazine is largely against ascarid parasites in all animal species (including people). The safety margin is wide. Piperazine Citrate is an anthelmintic of low toxicity with a high efficiency against ascarids and some other nematodes.
Piperazine acts to block neuromuscular transmission in the parasite by hyperpolarizing the nerve membrane, which leads to flaccid paralysis. It also blocks succinate production by the worm. The parasites, paralysed and depleted of energy, are expelled by peristalsis. It is active against the ascarids Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati/ roundworm, Toxascaris leonine and hookworms. Piperazine is rapidly absorbed from the GI tract, and piperazine base can be detected in the urine as early as 30 minutes after administration. The excretion rate is maximal at 1 – 8hr, and excretion is practically complete within 24hrs.
