Iverscab general information

What is Iverscab used for?

Iverscab dispersible tablets 6mg are used to treat parasitic infections caused by parasitic worms and ectoparasites.  Strongyloidiasis is an infection caused by the nematode Strongyloides stercoralis an intestinal parasite belonging to the hookworm group of roundworms.  Infection occurs by direct contact with contaminated soil and the larval worms enter the blood stream, migrate to the lungs and are then swallowed.  Once in the host intestine, the larvae mature into adults and produce eggs, which hatch, and the next generation of larvae are excreted in the faeces or migrate to other parts of the body and thereby re-infect the same host.  Symptoms of strongyloidiasis include a rash at the site of larval penetration, usually the feet, gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhoea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting); other symptoms include low-grade fever, coughing and wheezing, due to the migration of larvae through the lungs.  Severe infection can be more serious if the parasite spreads throughout the body.  Iverscab tablets 6mg are also used to treat lymphatic filariasis, also known as elephantiasis, caused by the thread-like nematode worm Wuchereria bancrofti carried by mosquitos.  Transmission is by a bite from an infected mosquito, which allows the larvae to enter the blood stream and migrate to the lymph vessels.  They mature into adults, mate and produce and microfilariae, which circulate in the blood ready to infect another mosquito when it bites, and grow into adults to begin the life cycle again.  Symptoms of lymphatic filariasis include lymphoedema or obstruction of the lymphatic system causing swelling in the arms, legs or genitals, which can be painful and disfiguring.  Iverscab tablets 6mg are also used to treat infestation caused by other intestinal nematode parasites including roundworm (ascariasis), whipworm (Trichuriasis)and pinworm (Enterobiasis).

Iverscab tablets 6mg are also used to treat scabies, after prior treatment has failed.  Scabies is a contagious ectoparasitic infection, caused by the parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabiei, which is transmitted by direct skin contact. The scabies mite burrows into the skin causing itching as it burrows, which can be intense and is often worse at night.  Within two to six weeks after infection the mite can cause an allergic reaction with symptoms including a rash, seen as small red bumps on the limbs and trunk, which are usually very itchy; also, nodules in the groin or armpit.  Burrow lines can also be seen at the site of infection, usually between the fingers, on the skin of the hands, feet, wrist, elbows, buttocks and genitals.  If left untreated scabies infection can cause secondary complications like impetigo (infection and inflammation of superficial skin cells) and cellulitis (inflammation of the lower dermal or subcutaneous skin layers). 

Iverscab tablets 6mg work through the same mechanism to kill the parasite causing these infections and thereby treating the infection to relieve symptoms and prevent spread of infection. 

How does Iverscab work?

Iverscab dispersible tablets 6mg contains ivermectin, an anthelmintic derived from the avermectins series of drugs that are isolated from fermentation of the soil bacteria Streptomyces avermitilis, that is used to treat a variety of parasitic diseases.  Ivermectin in Iverscab tablets 6mg works by interacting directly and specifically with the nervous system of the parasite but does not affect mammals.  Ivermectin in Iverscab dispersible tablets 6mg binds with high affinity to gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glutamate (GluCl) regulated chloride channels in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells, causing paralysis and death of the parasite.  Iverscab tablets 6mg are effective in interrupting the infectious cycle and helping to prevent spread of infection.
