Netobimin is an anthelmintic from the sample zimidazole group. It was developed in 1987 by Schering-Plow as a veterinary medicinal product . Netobimin is a prodrug of albendazole .


The active ingredient is used to treat gastrointestinal infestations - roundworms , lungworms , tapeworms and flukes in sheep.

Mechanism of action

As with all benzimidazoles, the effect is based on the binding to tubulins of the parasite cell and thus on the inhibition of the formation of microtubules . As a result, vital structural (formation of the cytoskeleton ) and functional processes (absorption of nutrients and transport processes within the parasite cells) are disturbed. After the reserves of the parasite are exhausted, it dies and is excreted after about 2 to 3 days.


When ingested, netobimin itself is not absorbed, but is quickly converted to albendazole in the rumen and ileum . Albendazole is rapidly absorbed, but is rarely found in the blood plasma due to its rapid processing in the liver ( first-pass effect ). Albendazole sulfoxide is formed in the liver and, like albendazole, is anthelmintically active.

After parenteral administration, netobimin is rapidly absorbed and released into the gastrointestinal tract via the blood and bile . In this respect, it is the same as for oral administration.
