Ivermectin is highly lipophilic (fat loving / fat loving) and therefore almost insoluble in water. Avermectins interfere (overlap, overlap) with the neurotransmitters (biochemical substances heterogeneous) glutamic acid and gamma - aminobutyric acid (GABA) which disturbances in the signal transmission of the nerve may occur (opening of chloride ion channels). This results in paralysis and eventually death of the susceptible Parasite.
