Ectoparasiticide against Mange
Ivermectin is endo effective ectparasiticide and their mode of action is the result of increased release of acid neurotransmitter gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) and conjugation enhanced GABA in their postsynaptic receptors, leading to the consequent opening of ion channels chloride and celular function decrease. However, there is sufficient evidence that ivermectin also affects channels independent from GABA chloride.
