Description of Isotretinoin
Ivermectin is a medication that is used to treat parasitic infections. It works by killing the parasites or preventing them from reproducing. Ivermectin is available as a tablet, liquid, or injection. It is usually taken once a day, but may be taken twice a day for some infections.
Ivermectin can be used to treat: head lice, scabies, river blindness, elephantiasis, and other parasitic infections. It can also be used to prevent malaria in people who are traveling to areas where malaria is common. Ivermectin may also be prescribed for other uses not listed here.
It was discovered by Japanese scientists Akihiko Campbell and Satoshi Omura in the 1970s, who found that avermectins are a fermentation product of the soil bacteria Streptomyces avermitilis. Ivermectin has since become one of the most widely-used antiparasitic drugs in the world, and has played a significant role in reducing the incidence of parasitic diseases such as river blindness and elephantiasis.
Ivermectin and COVID-19
In March 2020, scientists at The University of Hong Kong published a study showing that ivermectin can effectively kill SARS-CoV-2 viruses. The study found that ivermectin was able to reduce viral levels by up to 99% within 24 hours of treatment. Ivermectin works by blocking the ability of viruses to replicate themselves. It also appears to have some anti-inflammatory effects, which may help reduce damage done to tissues infected with the virus.
So far, there have been no reported cases of adverse effects from taking ivermectin for COVID-19 prevention or treatment. However, more research is needed before it can be recommended as a standard therapy for this virus. Ivermectin is currently being used in clinical trials for prevention and treatment of covid -19
