Ivermectin News and Research

RSS
Ivermectin (22,23-dihydroavermectin B1a + 22,23-dihydroavermectin B1b) is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic medication. It is traditionally used against worms, but more recently found to be effective against mites and some lice too. Ivermectin is currently being used to help eliminate river blindness (onchocerciasis) in the Americas and stop transmission of lymphatic filariasis around the world.
