Frequently Asked Questions

Nitroxynil, the active ingredient of TRODAX has been shown to have full efficacy against triclabendazole-resistant liver fluke1. Nitroxynil is active against the late immature and adult stages of liver fluke. It does not treat the stage of fluke responsible for acute fluke disease, but provides an effective treatment option against the later stages for both cattle and sheep.
