Albendazole is a synthetic anthelmintic which belongs to the group of benzimidazole-derivatives with activity against a broad range of worms and at a higher dosage level also against adult stages of liver fluke.
Albendazole combined with eelworm's microtubule protein and play a role. After albenzene combined with β- tubulin, it can prevent dimerization between albenzene and α – tubulin assembling into microtubules. Microtubules are the basic structure of the many cell units. Albendazole's affinity to nematodes tubulin is significantly higher than the affinity of mammalian tubulin, so toxicity to mammalian is small.
