    Mechanism of Action

    Fenbendazole is a benzimidazole that acts by binding to tubulin, an essential structural protein of microtubules. By blocking the microtubuless in worms the uptake of glucose is blocked which eventually depletes glycogen reserves. This disrupts the energy management system of the worms leading to paralysis and death.
