CAS Type 1 Name Imidazo(2,1-b)thiazole, 2,3,5,6-tetrahydro-6-phenyl-, (S)-
Equivalent Terms Decaris | Dekaris | Hydrochloride, Levamisole | Levamisole Hydrochloride | Levotetramisole | L-Tetramisole | Solaskil
CAS Registry Number 14769-73-4
Definition An antihelminthic drug that has been tried experimentally in rheumatic disorders where it apparently restores the immune response by increasing macrophage chemotaxis and T-lymphocyte function. Paradoxically, this immune enhancement appears to be beneficial in rheumatoid arthritis where dermatitis, leukopenia, and thrombocytopenia, and nausea and vomiting have been reported as side effects. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p435-6)
