Neuropeptides and their receptors offer novel drug target sites, not only for the development of new anthelmintics, but also to increase the potency of existing drugs. We anticipate that our observations will increase the understanding of worm physiology and validate the potential for exploring neuropeptide receptors for anthelmintic chemotherapy.Nervous commissures in nematodes As mentioned previously the nervous system of Ascaris is characterized by a repeating pattern of neurons, called segments (Stretton et al., 1978). ...
