Iodoquinol is effective against the trophozolites and cysts of Entomoeba histolytica in the large intestine. Because it is poorly absorbed in the GI tract, the drug can reach high concentrations in the intestinal lumen, and produces its potent amebicidal effect precisely at the site of infection, without any significant systemic absorption.
