Tribendimidine is a broad-spectrum anthelmintic agent developed in China, at the National Institute of Parasitic Diseases in Shanghai. It is a derivative of amidantel.[1]

In clinical trials, it was highly effective in treating ankylostomiasis, ascariasis and enterobiasis.[2] However, animal studies suggest it is ineffective in treating Schistosoma mansoni or Fasciola hepatica disease.[1] The drug has also performed well in trials against opisthorchiasis, curing about 70% of cases.[3]

Tribendimidine is manufactured by Shandong Xinhua Pharmaceutical Company Limited in Zibo, Shandong, China. It was approved by the China Food and Drug Administration in 2007.
