Dose Ratio mcg/kg Weight in lbs. Weight in kg Dose in mcg Dose in mg Dose in ml
200
400

There are predominantly two dosage ratios (200mcg/kg and 400mcg/kg) mentioned in many papers3, 18, 43. The 200 mcg/kg is a prophylactic (intended to prevent disease) and the 400 mcg/kg is an aggressive dose intended to treat a disease.Note: mcg is micrograms.

The aggressive dose may be administered orally once per day for 4 days. The first daily dose will put a percentage of the peak level of that dose into your system within a few minutes. The level in your system will then decline. At about 18 hours the level in your system will decline to 50% of the peak dose, and will continue to decline until you take the next dose.

When you take the next dose, the same effect happens, but this time the peak dose will be added to the residual that is left in your system from the previous dose(s). This same thing will happen after each dose.

The limit of the peaks will be reached after the 4th dose, which should be your last dose of the "agressive" dosage.

      prescribed oral ivermectin (two doses of 12 mg ivermectin with a 1-week interval) and topical lindane (1%gamma-BHC in petrolatum) for scabies with 5% salicylic acid in plastibase as an additional treatment for the crusted lesions on his soles.

      A five-day course of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 may reduce the duration of illness

      The most successful arm of this trial administered oral ivermectin alone (12 mg once daily for 5 days). 12mg equates to 1.2ml. This treatment was effective in clearing the virus in 9.7 days vs 12.7 days of the next most effective treatment.

      The results of this trial begs the questions: What would be the results of doubling the dose? What would be the results of elongating the dose?

      Ivermectin-induced drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome

      Drug reaction with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) syndrome, also known as drug-induced hypersensitivity syndrome, is a rare, potentially life-threatening adverse drug reaction with an estimated mortality rate up to 10%.

      These adverse reactions occur within 7 days of the administration of ivermectin and are likely related to the intensity of the filarial (parasite) infection and the release of parasite antigen. Since the eosinophil storm is likely caused by the dying parasites causing an avalanch of lymphosites, is this where control points should be established?

      Might the Mazzotti effect also be triggered by large populations of bacteri and viruses?

      Ivermectin plasma concentration

      Ivermectin’s impact on mosquito mortality is directly related to the time there is a lethal concentration in the blood

      The longer the drug remains in the blood, the more mosquitoes it will kill or disable. Any increase in duration of mosquitocidal concentrations is expected to contribute to additional mortality. Modelling shows that the time the drug remains in blood above mosquito-killing levels is the parameter that drives impact on transmission [50].

Among the 128 residents, 42 presented pruritus or cutaneous lesions and scabies was parasitologically demonstrated in seven patients. All residents were treated with two 12 mg doses of ivermectin given two weeks apart. Ivermectin treatment associated with procedures for environmental disinfection led to the control of the outbreak.

      “Doctor, I have a Sulfa Allergy”: Clarifying the Myths of Cross-Reactivity

      Sulfonamide antibiotic reactions encompass the entire spectrum of 4 types of hypersensitivity reactions.

      • Type 2 reactions involve antibody-mediated cytotoxic cellular injury that may result in various cytopenias. (Interpretation: A soldier of your immune system targets an undesirable cell, then attacks it, glues itself to the enemy cell, then destroys it. Cytopenia means the attack is now destroying even your red blood cells.)
      • Type 3 and type 4 hypersensitivity results in the formation of antigen–antibody immune complexes or a delayed T cell-mediated reaction, respectively, either of which may progress to the life-threatening Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis. (Interpretation: Your immune system goes into tornado mode and starts destroying anything that it thinks could possibly be an enemy cell, even to the point of killing the host body.)

      In December 2014, the US Food and Drug Administration approved 1% ivermectin cream for treatment of rosacea in adults while the first European approval was obtained in March 2015.

      Published: 01 September 2022 Integrated analysis reveals FOXA1 and Ku70/Ku80 as targets of ivermectin in prostate cancer

      Herein, we report the pharmacological effects and targets of ivermectin in prostate cancer.

      Recently, several studies have explored the potential of ivermectin as a new cancer treatment [9,10,11]. In breast cancer, ivermectin decreases p21-activated kinase 1 (PAK1) expression by promoting its degradation and inducing cell autophagy [12]. In ovarian cancer, ivermectin can block the cell cycle and induce cell apoptosis through a Karyopherin-β1 (KPNB1) related mechanism [13]. In leukemia, ivermectin preferentially kills leukemia cells at low concentrations by increasing the influx of chloride ions into cells, which triggers plasma membrane hyperpolarization and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production [14].

      The Benefit of a Single Oral Dose of Ivermectin in Humans: The Adverse Effects on Cimex lectularius L. Populations and Fecundity

      Objective: To measure the population size and fecundity (ability to reproduce) of the common bed bug after feeding it with the blood obtained from human subjects who have consumed a single dose of ivermectin.

      Conclusions: There were significant reductions in bed bug population size and fecundity in insects that fed on blood obtained from human study subjects up to 96 hours after they have consumed a single oral dose of ivermectin.
