Abstract

The binding characteristics of Ivermectin were determined using scatchard plots. The percentage binding to platelet rich plasma, white blood cells and red blood cells were 90.00 + 1.00, 96-90 + 1.05 and 46.20 + 1.10 S.D respectively. It was found to bind the highest to white blood cells and the least to red blood cells. The platelet rich plasma was incubated for 2 hours while the white and red blood cells were incubated for 24 hours.

KEY WORDS:Ivermectin, Scatchard plots, Binding, Platelet-rich plasma, Blood cells.
