Classes of anthelmintic drugs

The MeSH browser can be used to study the MeSH (medical subject headings) classification system. Drugs and compounds in the MeSH pharmalogical classification can be browsed here. I'm interested in anthelmintic drugs. For these the MeSH classes are:

   - Antinematodal Agents
       - Filaricides
   - Antiplatyhelmintic Agents  
       - Anticestodal Agents
       - Schistosomicides

But anthelmintic drugs also go by other names..
Other names to look for are: anti-helminthic, antischistosomal, antifilarial, antitrematodal, filaricidal, fasciolicidal, fasciolicide, microfilaricidal, nematicidal, nematocidal, taeniacide.
