Toltranor is an effective oral solution, it has toltrazuril as its major constituent. Toltrazuril is an anticoccidial active against Eimeria spp. Toltrazuril induces changes in the fine structure of the developmental stages of coccidia. These are caused primarily by swelling of the endoplasmic reticulum and of the Golgi apparatus, abdominal changes to the perinuclear space and disturbances in cell division. Toltrazuril causes a decrease in the activity of respiratory chain enzymes in the parasites.
