Description:
NITAZ is a synthetic antiprotozoal agent and is well absorbed from GIT. The antiprotozoal activity of Nitazoxanide is believed to be due to interference with the pyruvate ferredoxin oxidoreductase (PFOR) enzyme dependent electron transfer reaction which is essential to anaerobic energy metabolism. Following oral administration in human, Nitazoxanide is rapidly hydrolyzed to an active metabolite, tizoxanide (deacylated-Nitazoxanide), which is readily reduced by PFOR enzymes from the parasites by transfer of electrons. This reduced form of Nitazoxanide deprives parasite of their energy and eradicates them from the body.

Available in 100mg/5mL Powder of Suspension in 30mL amber glass bottle.
