During the first grazing season a group of calves treated with an oxfendazole pulse release bolus achieved a mean (+/- sem) weight gain of 140.7 (+/- 6.7) kg compared with 106.5 (+/- 5.7) kg by a group treated once with ivermectin mid-season, and 116.9 (+/- 6.9) kg by a group which received no treatment. This economic advantage was maintained during the period of winter housing. By the end of the second grazing season, during which the animals received no anthelmintic medication, they weighed on average 20 kg more than the wholly untreated group, a difference which was not statistically significant. No signs of clinical disease were observed in either the animals dosed with a pulse release bolus or the undosed control animals during the two year trial period. The treatment with the oxfendazole pulse release bolus greatly reduced the degree of pasture contamination in the first year but in the second year those animals that had been treated in the first year developed higher worm egg counts (P less than 0.001) and thus augmented the levels of pasture contamination compared with the untreated control animals. Nematodirus battus and N filicollis both produced low grade but fertile infestations in the calves.

Most patients were young (median age 32 years, range 3-66) males (12, 80%). Seven patients (46.6%) were immunocompromised. All patients were symptomatic, and symptoms included chronic diarrhea (4, 26.7%), acute diarrhea (1,6.7%), abdominal pain (6, 40%), weight loss (3, 20%), cough (2, 13.33%), vomiting (1, 6.7%), anemia (10, 66.7%) and eosinophilia (3, 20%). Thirteen patients (86.6%) were diagnosed on first stool microscopy. Duodenal biopsy showed normal histology in twelve (80%) and partial villous atrophy in one (6.7%) patient. Stool microscopy also revealed giardiasis and cryptosporidiosis in one patient each. Nine patients responded well to ivermectin and albendazole, one died and five were lost to follow-up.

Oxidative stress by increased production of reactive oxygen species has been implicated in pesticides toxicity. This study focused on the toxicological effects of chlorpyrifos, an organophosphate insecticide and abamectin, a biocide each alone or in combination on antioxidant status, and oxidative stress biomarkers in brain and kidney. Animals were divided into four groups. The first group was used as control while groups 2, 3, and 4 were treated with chlorpyrifos (CPF; 14.9 mg/kg BW), abamectin (ABM; 30 mg/kg BW), and chlorpyrifos plus abamectin, respectively. Rats were treated daily with the tested compounds by oral gavages for 30 days. Results revealed that thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS) levels were significantly increased in brain and kidney due to insecticides administration. On the other hand, reduced glutathione (GSH) and protein contents in addition to the activities of antioxidant enzymes, alkaline phosphatase (ALP), and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) were significantly decreased in rat organs. A significant induction in lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activity, urea, and creatinine levels were also observed. The response was more pronounced in rats treated with both CPF and ABM. Results showed that the used insecticides had the propensity to cause significant oxidative damage in rat brain and kidney which is associated with marked perturbations in antioxidant defense system. It can be concluded that antioxidant enzymes can be used as potential biomarkers of toxicity associated with pesticides exposure.

A total of 1800 laboratory reared mosquito larvae of each species were used in the bioassays. Twelve replicates were performed, each testing 6 concentrations of ivermectin (0.0, 0.001, 0.01, 0.1, 1.0 and 10.0 parts per million (ppm)) against third instar larvae of An. gambiae and Cx. quinquefasciatus. Larval mortality was recorded at 24 and 48 h post addition of ivermectin.

A community based cross-sectional study was conducted from April 23 to May 22, 2012. Data on socio-demographic characteristics, knowledge, attitude and practice towards onchocerciasis were collected using semi-structured questionnaires. Clinical examination was undertaken for onchocercal skin diseases by experienced health professionals. Moreover, two skin snip samples were collected from the right and left gluteal folds. Study participants found positive for O. volvulus infection during the study were treated individually with standard dose of ivermectin as per WHO guideline.
This paper highlights the mode of action of the various antifilarial treatment strategies and role of host immune response.
At day 14, 33 patients (68.8%) in the BB2 group were cured versus 37 (54.4%) in the BB1 group and 16 (24.6%) in the IV group (P < 10-6). Bacterial superinfection occurred more often in the IV group than in the BB1 and BB2 groups combined (28% versus 7.8%, respectively; P = 0.006). At day 28, 46 patients (95.8%) in the BB2 group were cured versus 52 (76.5%) in the BB1 group and 28 (43.1%) in the IV group (P < 10-5). These clear findings prompted early study cessation.
Abamectin, which is comprised of a mixture of avermectins B1a and B1b, is a natural pesticide used as an anti-parasitic agent in livestock, ornamental, and agricultural crops, which can potentially be transported to aquatic systems. These compounds are highly toxic to both aquatic vertebrates and invertebrates at low concentrations in water. This investigation developed high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC/MS/MS) techniques to support automated extraction by an accelerated solvent extraction (ASE) system and chromatographic techniques to measure residues of avermectins in complex soil samples. HPLC along with atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) MS/MS was used for separation and determination of avermectin isomers in soil samples. Average method recovery for abamectin by UV was 91%, while detection by MS/MS resulted in a 68% recovery for abamectin. Individual method recoveries by MS/MS were 53.6% for avermectin B1a and 36.8% for avermectin B1b. The use of tandem technology eliminated matrix interferences and resulted in an approximately eight-fold increase in sensitivity.
