Pharmacokinetics in Humans: Daxon (nitazoxanide) is rapidly absorbed from the intestinal tract, being rapidly metabolized by oxidation of acetyl chain 2 - (hydroxy-1-N-(5-nitro 2-tiazol/benzamida).

The maximum concentration (Cmax of 1.9 mcg / ml) (Tmax 2-6 hours) Daxon (nitazoxanide) can be detected in blood 2 hours after administration of a single dose of 500 mg. The main metabolite excreted unchanged in urine within 24 hours.

In Trichomonas vaginalis, Giardia lamblia and Entamoeba histolytica, the electron resonance studies have shown that biochemical and pyruvate ferridoxin oxidoreductase (PFOR) and hydrogenase less intensity, reduce ferridoxina, which is oxidized by the nitro group of T position on nitroheterocíclicos as Daxon compounds (nitazoxanide).

In these organisms, Daxon (nitazoxanide) is reduced to a toxic radical in an organelle of carbohydrate metabolism, the hydrogenosome, which contains hydrogenase and PFOR ferridoxina.

Do not use in children younger than 2 years.

CHANGES IN RESULTS OF LABORATORY TESTS: may be an elevation in transaminases, moderate, which resolves after discontinuation of medication.

PRECAUTIONS IN RELATION TO EFFECTS OF CARCINOGENESIS, MUTAGENESIS, Impairment of Fertility: The Ames and micronucleus tests showed no teratogenic effects.

The evidence for the mutagenic effect in Salmonella typhimurium were negative for mutagenic effects.

No carcinogenicity data.
