Product Overview:
Nitazoxanide is a prodrug form of the antiparasitic tizoxanide (Item No. 13693), an inhibitor of pyruvate-ferredoxin oxidoreductase (PFOR).{17926} It inhibits growth of the parasite C. parvum in MDBK cells when used at a concentration of 10 µg/ml.{57622} It is active against M. tuberculosis and M. bovis (MIC = 16 µg/ml for both) and bactericidal against replicating and non-replicating M. tuberculosis.{17926} Nitazoxanide (5 and 10 µM) inhibits replication of severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and Middle East respiratory syndrome CoV (MERS-CoV).{57523} It also inhibits viral hemagglutinin N-glycosylation and replication of the influenza strains H1N1 PR8 and WSN, as well as H5N9 A/Ck viruses (EC50s = 1, 0.5, and 1 µg/ml, respectively).{19985} Nitazoxanide (250 mg/kg) reduces oocyst shedding and parasite burden, but not the severity of diarrhea, in a gnotobiotic piglet model of C. parvum infection.{57622} Formulations containing nitazoxanide have been used in the treatment of diarrhea caused by G. lamblia or C. parvum.

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
