Elimite (Permethrin) is designed to eradicate the pestilent scabies mite (Sarcoptes scabiei) and lice. Its mechanism of pharmacological action lies in the neurotoxic ability of permethrin to depolarize the membranes of insect nerve cells.
Similarly to all naturally occurring pyrethrins, Elimite permeates the nervous system of parasites leading to the disruption of sodium cation inflow throughout cell membrane ion channels. These are the means by which a cell controls its membrane repolarization; as the drug delays the repolarization process, the parasite’s nerves get paralyzed. Subsequently, the insect dies of suffocation resulting from the dysfunction of its exoskeletal respiratory muscles.
Elimite is poorly absorbed by human body (< 2%) and quickly enters the metabolic path of ester hydrolysis, ending up decomposed to harmless metabolites that get excreted with urine.
