What is Moxidectin?
Moxidectin is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by Medicines Development for Global Health. Moxidectin is an anthelmintic used for the treatment of onchocerciasis (river blindness) due to Onchocerca volvulus in patients aged 12 years of age and older.
Symptoms of River blindness include severe itching, disfiguring skin conditions, and visual impairment caused by the worm’s larvae. The spread of Onchocerca volvulus is from person to person, by black flies that breed in fast-flowing rivers in sub-Saharan Africa, Yemen, and South and Central America. The larvae released by the adult worms attack the skin and eyes where they can produce severe reactions.
Moxidectin does not kill adult O. volvulus parasites, and follow-up treatment is recommended. The safety and effectiveness of repeat use of Moxidectin in patients with O. volvulus have not been studied.
Moxidectin is a broad-spectrum endectocide active against nematodes, insects, and acari. Moxidectin is also used in animals for the prevention or control of parasitic worms, such as heartworm and intestinal worms, in dogs, cats, horses, cattle, and sheep. Moxidectin kills some of the most common internal and external parasites by selectively attaching to the parasite’s glutamate-gated chloride channels and disrupting neurotransmission, resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite.
What doses of Moxidectin are available?
Moxidectin is available as a tablet formulation, in the following doses: 2 mg.
The recommended dose of Moxidectin is a single dose of 8 mg (four 2 mg tablets) orally with or without food.
Always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
Moxidectin active ingredients
Moxidectin contains ivermectin, a macrocyclic lactone with antiparasitic activity of the milbemycin class. This pharmacokinetic property in humans is unknown.
Moxidectin may bind to glutamate-gated chloride channels, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors, and/or ATP-binding cassette transporters expressed on nematode neurons and pharyngeal muscle cells. This results in muscle paralysis. Moxidectin reduces the motility and fertility of the parasite and its excretion of immunomodulatory proteins and blocks the release of microfilariae.
Moxidectin side effects
The most common side effects of Moxidectin in clinical trials include:
- Eosinophilia, neutropenia, lymphopenia
- Musculoskeletal pain
- Headache, dizziness
- Abdominal pain
- Flu-like symptoms
- Peripheral swelling
In rare instances, Moxidectin can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- Cutaneous, ophthalmological, and systemic adverse reactions
- Symptomatic orthostatic hypotension
- Encephalopathy in Loa loa co-infected patients
- Edema and worsening of onchodermatitis
- Moxidectin has less affinity than ivermectin for P-glycoprotein, which allows it to penetrate the brain more easily to cause neurotoxicity
- Toxicity from the potentiation of GABA
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Moxidectin against your risk of adverse effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Moxidectin to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
