“In continuation of our program aimed at the
discovery and development of natural-product-based insecticidal agents, four series of novel cholesterol-based hydrazone Barasertib derivatives were synthesized, and their insecticidal activity was tested against the pre-third-instar larvae of oriental armyworm, Mythimna separata (Walker) in vivo at 1 mg/mL. All the derivatives showed the better insecticidal activity than their precursor cholesterol. Quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR) model demonstrated that six descriptors such as RDF085v, Mor06u, Mor11u, Dv, HATS0v and H-046, are likely to influence Pevonedistat the insecticidal activity of these compounds. Among them, two important
ones are the Mor06u and RDF085v. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.”
“Background: Homeless people commonly present with ectoparasite-based pruritus. We evaluated the efficacy of a single dose of ivermectin to reduce the pruritus prevalence in a homeless population.\n\nMethods: We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial from January 2006 to April 2006 in two homeless shelters in the city of Marseille, France. Homeless people complaining of pruritus were randomized to receive either ivermectin (24 mg) or placebo. Follow-up visits were planned at day 14 and day 28 after the inclusion to assess the outcome of pruritus.\n\nResults: Forty-two
subjects with pruritus were randomized to the ivermectin group and 40 to the placebo group. On day 14, pruritus was reported by significantly more subjects in the placebo group than those in the ivermectin group for both the per-protocol (PP) population (91.42% versus 68.57%, P = 0.014) and the intention-to-treat (ITT) population (92.5% versus 73.80%, P = 0.038). No significant effect was observed at day 28. Ivermectin was the only independent AZD9291 order factor associated with the absence of pruritus at day 14 in both PP population [OR: 4.60 (95% CI:1.13; 18.73), P = 0.033] and ITT population [OR: 4.38 (95% CI: 1.07; 17.77), P = 0.039].\n\nConclusions: A single dose of oral ivermectin has a transient beneficial effect on the reduction of the prevalence of pruritus in the homeless population. More studies are required to assess the efficacy of multiple repeated treatments with ivermectin to reduce scabies and body lice endemic among homeless people with pruritus and the impact of such treatment on this population.”
