Fenbendazole is a broad spectrum benzimidazole anthelmintic that has been used for decades to treat parasitic infections in animals. It works by inhibiting microtubule polymerization, disrupting cellular function in parasitic organisms. Additionally, recent research has indicated that fenbendazole may have immunomodulatory properties and is capable of stimulating lymphocyte proliferation and improving cytokine profiles, potentially providing therapeutic applications for autoimmune diseases.
