5. PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Insecticidal collar for cats contains Diazinon as a parasiticide.

Therapeutic group: ectoparasiticides for topical use, organophosphorus

compounds.

ATc Vet Code: QP53AF03

5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties

Diazinon, an organophosphorus parasiticide is active against common fleas

(Ctenocephalides) of cats. It acts mainly by inhibiting insect enzymes such as

cholinesterases. This is achieved when Diazinon competes with acetylcholine,

responsible for nerve impulses, by binding to the esterase site of the

cholinesterase molecules.

Acetylcholine, degraded at a lower pace, accumulates and induces disorders.

Because the metabolism of Diazinon in insects is very slow, irreversible poisoning

is achieved.

5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars

In mammals, cholinesterase activity similarly decreases. However, this is only

transitory since enzyme synthesis is resumed and diazinon is degraded within a

very short period of time.

Diazinon being slowly released from the collar’s matrix, the product remains acti ve

for up to 4 months.
