What is Doramectin?

Doramectin structure

Doramectin is a macrolide drug of the avermectin family and has a very similar structure to ivermectin. As shown in Figure 1, doramectin C25 is cyclohexane, ivermectin is a mixture of several homologues, its highly active component is B1a (content accounts for 80%), C25 is CH (CH3) C2H5 The C25 of another component B1b (accounting for 20%) is CH (CH3) -CH3. Doramectin C22 and C23 are double bonds, while ivermectin is a single bond.

Doramectin mechanism of action

Its mechanism of action is mainly to increase the release of the insect's inhibitory transmitter γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), thereby blocking the transmission of nerve signals, causing muscle cells to lose their ability to contract, and causing the death of the insect. The peripheral neurotransmitter of mammals is acetylcholine, which is not affected by doramectin. Doramectin is not easy to penetrate the blood-brain barrier, has minimal damage to the central nervous system, and is safer for livestock.

Doramectin vs ivermectin

Doramectin is a new type of avermectin antiparasitic drug, its anthelmintic effect is similar to ivermectin, and it can inhibit the transmission of nerve impulses between neuromusculars, causing paralysis of the worm body to die from the host and die However, due to the high blood concentration of doramectin in the body, the elimination is slower (the half-life of doramectin is 5.7d, the half-life of ivermectin is 4.2d), and the maintenance time of the drug effect is extended, so the insect repellent effect is better, And there is no allergic reaction, so it is safe to use.

Doramectin use as a veterinary medicine

Doramectin for dogs

It has been reported that pigs are administered intramuscularly at a dose of 0.3 mg / kg body weight, and cases of artificial and natural infection gain weight at 7, 14 and 21 days after administration Significantly higher than the control group (pig P <0.0001); compared with the control group, the insect body was 100% expelled, and no side effects occurred. In the treatment of swine mites, from suckling piglets to sows, they have a good effect. After artificially infected with scabies mites, they are administered according to 0.3Chemicalbook mg / kg body weight intramuscular injection. The elimination effect of worm infection is very obvious (P <0.05). In the treatment of kidney worms in pregnant sows, the neck was injected at a dose of 0.3 mg / kg at one time. On days 56 and 57, the detection rate of urinary worm eggs was 0, and the removal rate was 100%, while the control group It is 3762 eggs per ml of urine. It has the same effect on swine lung worms and swine lice.
