Studies on the Short Term Effects of Ivermectin on some Human Blood

By

Abstract

Ivemectin, is the present drug of choice for the treatment of Onchocerciasis. A lot of literature exist on the adverse effects of Ivemectin, but these adverse effects are centred principally on systemic and local effects. No literature exist on the ultrastructural changes of cells and organelles after ivermectin administration and that is the question this research work tends to answer. This work should be termed a tabularizer. The effects of Iverrnectin were investigated on human blood cells invivo and invitro and other haematological indices by normal method of assaying haematological parameters in any diagnostic laboratory. (Baker,F.J1985) The ultrastructural changes from the blood films were done by
photomicrography.
