Emodepside is an anthelmintic drug that is effective against a number of gastrointestinal nematodes, is licensed for use in cats[1] and belongs to the class of drugs known as the octadepsipeptides,[2] a relatively new class of anthelmintic (research into these compounds began in the early 1990s),[3] which are suspected to achieve their anti-parasitic effect by a novel mechanism of action due to their ability to kill nematodes resistant to other anthelmintics.[4]
