Nitazoxanide, Indications, Dosage, Side Effects, Interactions, Pregnancy


Nitazoxanide¬†is a synthetic¬†benzamide¬†with antiprotozoal activity.¬†Nitazoxanide¬†exerts its antiprotozoal activity by interfering with the¬†pyruvate ferredoxin/flavodoxin oxidoreductase dependent electron transfer reaction, which is essential to anaerobic energy metabolism. PFOR enzyme reduces¬†nitazoxanide, thereby impairing the energy metabolism. However, interference with the PFOR enzyme-dependent electron Read More ….>

Metronidazole, Indications, Dosage, Side Effects, Interactions


Metronidazole¬†is a synthetic¬†nitroimidazole¬†derivative with antiprotozoal and antibacterial activities. Although its mechanism of action is not fully elucidated, un-ionized¬†metronidazole¬†is readily taken up by obligate anaerobic organisms and is subsequently reduced by low-redox potential electron-transport proteins to an active, intermediate product. Reduced¬†metronidazole¬†causes Read More ….>
