How effective are Biltricide tablets 600 mg from Japan for parasitic diseases (parasitic worm infections, praziquantel)?
Biltricide tablets contain praziquantel, an oral antiparasitic drug. It works by increasing the permeability of the membranes of parasitic cells towards calcium ions, inducing the contraction of the parasites' muscle, resulting in paralysis and death. Biltricide tablets are generally safe, well-tolerated and can be used against a broad spectrum of parasites.
