Albendazole is an "antihelmintic," or anti-worm, medication. It prevents worms from growing or multiplying in your body. Albendazole is used to treat infections caused by worms such as pork tapeworm and dog tapeworm. Albendazole interferes with various energy-producing processes of helminths (worms), including impairing the uptake of glucose (sugar) for energy. Albendazole is a medication which is used as an adjunct in the treatment of hydatid disease. Hydatid disease is caused by the parasite Echinococcus granulosus or Echinococcus multilocularis and presents as fluid-filled sacs (cysts) that grow in the liver, lungs and brain of infected individuals.
