Composition:Each 1 ml contains
Ivermectin 0.8 mg
The Ivermectin family of compounds of which Ivermectin is a member kills certain parasitic nematodes (roundworms) and arthropods. The action is unique and not shared by other antiparasitic agents and involves a chemical that serves as a signal from one nerve cell to another or from a nerve cell to a muscle cell. This chemical a neurotransmitter is called gamma aminobutyric acid or GABA.
In roundworms, Invermectin stimulates the release of GABA from nerve endings and enhances binding of GABA to special receptors at nerve junctions, thus interrupting nerve impulses, thereby paralyzing and killing the parasite.
The enhancement of the GABA effect in arthropods resembles that in roundworms except that nerve impulses are interrupted between the nerve ending and the muscle cell. Again, this leads to paralysis and death in most species.
