Development of resistance to ivermectinin vitro is reported for the first time. Two strains ofCaenorhabditis elegans D5 and D6 able to grow on agar plates after treating with up to 3 mg ivermectin per L were selected. The parent strain N2 was extremely sensitive to ivermectin, its growth being inhibited by treatment with 0.1–0.2 mg IVM per L.
