Natural Product as Avermectins and Milbemycins for Agriculture Perspectives

The very first development of avermectins was done from isolation in Kitasato Institute laboratories, using a novel soil-dwelling bacterium. It was transmittal to the Merck & Co. research laboratory

Avermectin Derivatives, Pharmacokinetics, Therapeutic and Toxic Dosages, Mechanism of Action, and Their Biological Effects

Avermectins are a group of drugs that occurs naturally as a product of fermenting Streptomyces avermitilis, an actinomycetes, isolated from the soil and are used for treatment of several metabolic disorders.

The effects of some avermectins on bovine carbonic anhydrase enzyme

In conclusion, avermectins are effective agricultural pesticides and antiparasitic agents that are widely employed in the agricultural, veterinary and medical fields and inhibitors of carbonic anhydrase enzyme, which catalyses the rapid interconversion of carbon dioxide and water to bicarbonate and protons and regulates the acidity of the local tissues.

Repurposing Avermectins and Milbemycins against Mycobacteroides abscessus and Other Nontuberculous Mycobacteria

The in vitro anti-mycobacterial activity of macrocyclic lactones was characterized against a wide range of NTM species, including Mycobacteroides abscessus, to explore repurposing of anti-helminthics for NTM therapy.

Characterisation of P-glycoprotein-9.1 in Haemonchus contortus

A strong interaction of the avermectins with Hco-PGP-9.1 in the female reproductive system in resistant worms could reduce paralysis of the uterus by macrocyclic lactones, allowing continued egg release in drug challenged resistant worms.

Effects of Avermectins on the Environment Based on Its Toxicity to Plants and Soil Invertebrates—a Review

According to new data on scientific literature, avermectins can now be considered harmful to non-target organisms, and its prudent use is recommended in order to reduce negative effects on the environment.

In silico analysis of the binding of anthelmintics to Caenorhabditis elegansP-glycoprotein 1

Assessment of Avermectins-Induced Toxicity in Animals

In this review, various modes of avermectins action along with the negative effects on the host like nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity, neurotoxicity, reproductive toxicity, and endocrine disruption were discussed in detail.



Structure and activity of avermectins and milbemycins in animal health.

Doramectin--a potent novel endectocide.

Evidence for macrocyclic lactone anthelmintic resistance in Dirofilaria immitis.

Recent evidence at the molecular level is reviewed that supports the hypothesis that parasites derived from LOE cases have experienced a strong selection event and that these populations are characterized by very high frequencies of single-nucleotide polymorphisms in a D. immitis gene encoding a P-glycoprotein transporter.

Ivermectin and Abamectin

This comprehensive monograph satisfies the need for a review and synthesis of current knowledge about the use of ivermectin and abamectin in crop protection as well as in cattle, sheep, swine, horses, dogs, cats, birds, fish, reptiles, and in man.

Eprinomectin: a novel avermectin for use as a topical endectocide for cattle.

Comparative plasma disposition kinetics of ivermectin, moxidectin and doramectin in cattle.

The comparative plasma disposition kinetics of IVM, MXD and DRM in cattle, characterized over 80 days post-treatment under standardized experimental conditions, is reported for the first time.

Resistance to avermectins: extent, mechanisms, and management implications.

Information is gathered on the genetics, biochemical mechanisms, effectiveness of synergists, and cross-resistances to other insecticides from three abamectin-resistant insects that may prove useful in the resistance management of this natural pesticide.

Pharmacokinetics of moxidectin and ivermectin following intravenous injection in pigs with different body compositions.

Altering body composition had no detectable influence on the kinetic disposition of IVM in this study and, although there was no difference in AUC or the volume of distribution, MOX was distributed within and eliminated from the lean animals more rapidly than from the fat animals.
