Mechanism of action:
Closantel is a broad spectrum and synthetic antiparasitic agent which is highly effective against liver fluke, bloodsucking nematodes and larval stages of some arthropods in cattle and sheep. Closantel decouples the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation, which leads to the inhibition of ATP synthesis. This causes a significant change in energy metabolism, leading to the death of the parasite.
