Levamisole is used for initial and secondary immunodeficient conditions, autoimmune diseases, chronic and reoccurring infections, large intestine adenocarcinoma, helmintosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Synonyms of this drug are decaris, tetramizole, and others. Levimasole is also a drug of choice for ascardiasis. Numerous investigations show that a single dose of levamisole heals from 90 to 100% of patients with ascardiasis, in particular those infected with A. duodenale. It is less effective against ancylostomiasis and strongyloidiasis. However, it is not effective against N. americanus. It seems likely that it has a gangliostimulating effect on parasite tissues in both the parasympathetic and sympathetic regions. Moreover, it is presumed that this drug has an immunomodulatory effect on the host organism. Synonyms of this drug are decaris, solacil, ergamisol, tramisol, immunol, and others.
