NICAMAX®

Powder for oral administration

Description

Yellow powder.

Composition

1 kg of the drug contains:

active ingredients: maduramycin ammonium – 7.5 g; nicarbazin – 80 g;

excipient - corn fiber.

Pharmacological properties

АТСvet: QP51. Antiprotozoals. QP51AX30. Combinations of other antiprotozoal agents.

Antiprotozoal effect of the drug is conditioned by synergism of active ingredients, which are present in its composition – maduramycin ammonium (ionophoric antibiotic) and nicarbazin (derivative of dinitrocarbanilide), minor concentrations of which ensure effective anti-eimeriosis action. The use of Nicamax® is more effective as compared to the separate use of maduramycin ammonium and nicarbazin.

Maduramycin is an eimeriostatic of the ionophore group, which is active against eimeriae (Eimeria tenella, E. acervulina, E. necatrix, E. mivati, E. maxima, E. brunetti) in the stages of sporozoites, trophozoites and schizoites of the first generation. The mechanism of action of the drug consists in disruption of transport of monovalent ions of Na+ and К+ through cell membrane of the parasite with its further death.

Nicarbazin is a synthetic agent, which represents a complex of 4,4’-dinitrocarbanilide (DNC) and 2-hydro-4,6-dimethylpyrimidine (HDP), which inhibits energetic metabolism in the parasite body.
