Fluralaner is an acaricide and insecticide. It is efficacious against ticks (Ixodes spp., Dermacentor spp. , Haemaphysalis elliptica and Rhipicephalus sanguineus) and fleas (Ctenocephalides spp.) on the dog. Fluralaner is systemically active on target parasites. Contact activity against ticks and fleas is of minor relevance. Fluralaner is a potent inhibitor of parts of the arthropod nervous system by acting antagonistically on ligand-gated chloride channels (GABA-receptor and glutamate-receptor). In a molecular on target study, Fluralaner is not affected by dieldrin resistance. In vitro, Fluralaner overcomes resistance against amidines, organophosphates, cyclodienes, macrocyclic lactones, phenylpyrazoles, benzophenyl ureas, pyrethroids and carbamates. In vivo, Fluralaner is highly effective against fleas proven to be less susceptible to phenylpyrazole insecticides.
Following oral administration, Fluralaner is readily absorbed reaching maximum plasma concentrations within one day. Food enhances the absorption. Fluralaner is systemically distributed and reaches the highest concentrations in the visceral fat, followed by liver, kidney and muscle. The prolonged persistence and slow elimination from plasma (t½ = 12 days) and the lack of extensive metabolism provide effective concentrations of Fluralaner for the duration of the inter-dosing interval, ensuring efficacy for 12 weeks. The major route of elimination is the excretion of unchanged Fluralaner in faeces (~90 % of the dose). Renal clearance is the minor route of elimination.
