Dimethylcarbamazine citrate salt (DEC) is an antiparasitic piperazine derivative that has been used against Wuchereria bancrofti. It is a stable compound in salt form and has been used to research antimalarial resistances in W. bancrofti. DEC inhibits arachidonic acid synthesis, which is a key component for a protective sheath formed by pre-larval W. bancrofti called microfilaria.
