Each 1 ml contains:
Closantel (as Closantel Sodium Dihydrate) 125 mg
Ivermectin 5 mg
IVECLOSAis a member of the salicylanilide class of anthelmintics. Salicylanilides are hydrogen (proton) ionophores (Referred to as oxidative phosphorylase uncouplers.)
The chemical structure of salicylanilides illustrates the possession of a detachable proton. This type of molecule is lipophilic and is known to shuttle protons across membranes, in particular the inner mitochondrial membrane.
Closantel acts by uncoupling oxidative phosphorylation.
Closantel is a parasiticide with flukicide activity and efficacy against certain other helminths and arthropods.
Ivermectin is effectively treatment & control internal and external parasites in Cattle and Sheep, 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 a special receptors at nerve Junctions, thus interrupting nerve impulses and leading to paralysis and death of the parasite. 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.
IVECLOSA is indicated for the treatment of internal and external parasites in Cattle and Sheep.
