    Moxidectin is a semi-synthetic milbemycin derived from nemadectin by selective oxidation followed by methyloximation. Moxidectin was patented in 1991 as an anthelmintic for internal parasite control. The presence of the methyloxime affords moxidectin a greater hydrophobicity and longer biological half-life compared to nemadectin.

    Moxidectin is soluble in ethanol, methanol, DMF or DMSO. Limited water solubility.
    Mechanism of ActionMoxidectin binds selectively to parasite glutamate-gated chloride ion channels and disrupts neurotransmission leading to paralysis and death of the parasite.
