Topaz Pharmaceuticals Announces Completion of Pivotal Phase 3 Trials of Ivermectin Topical Cream
Date:12/7/2010

Society for Pediatric Dermatology annual meeting.

About IvermectinIvermectin is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic agent.  Its antiparasitic mechanism of action is through binding selectively to certain ion channels present in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells but not present in mammals. The resulting increase in permeability of the cell membrane causes the death of certain parasites.  First developed from a soil bacterium, widespread oral use of ivermectin, under the brand name Mectizan®, began in 1987 in sub-Saharan Africa to control onchocerciasis (river blindness) in humans.  As of 2009, over 800 million doses of oral ivermectin had been administered as part of a river blindness eradication program.(1)  A novel topical form of ivermectin is currently under clinical investigation by Topaz as a potential therapy to treat head lice.

Impact of Head LiceHead lice infestation is a common affliction that occurs throughout the world.(2,3)  It is estimated that 6-12 million infestations occur each year in the United States, with infestations typically affecting children between the ages of three and 11.(4)   The social and economic burden of head lice can be significant,(5,6,7) and may lead to social ostracism, cause parental anxiety and act as a source of economic loss through missed school days and caregiver time off work.  Children found to be infested with head lice may not be allowed to return to school due to local no-nit policies.(8)  Despite parents' best efforts to get rid of lice, current treatments are often ineffective, and safety and convenience issues have been associated with the available prescription treatments.
