AVIMEC 1%

Composition: Each 1 ml contains:
Ivermectin 10 mg
Properties:
AVIMEC Injection is effectively control and treatment of internal and external parasites that impair livestock health and productivity.
Ivermectin has a broad spectrum efficacy and wide safety margin. Ivermectin is derived from the family avermectins, which are isolated from fermentation of the soil organism streptomyces avermitilis.
Ivermectin paralyzes and ultimately kills parasitic nematodes, arachnoids, and insects by a unique effect on the nervous systems of these parasites.
Ivermectin action is due to a neurotransmitter chemical that serves as a signal from one nerve cell to another or from a nerve cell to a muscle cell and is called gamma amino butyric acid (GABA).
In round worms Ivermectin stimulates the release of GABA from nerve endings and enhances binding of GABA to special receptors at nerve junctions, thus interrupting nerve the same effect occurs in mites & lice.
Ivermectin has no effect on acetylcholine which is the principal peripheral neurotransmitter in mammals and does not readily penetrate the central nervous system of mammals were GABA functions as neurotransmitter.
