Apparently there are many concerned in (professional, peer-reviewed) scabies treatment research. You wil find over 1800 articles on Pubmed. Over 300 when you search 'Scabies Ivermectin'.

One interesting one: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22385121
- explores efficacy of permethrin v. Ivermectin treatment (published June 2012).

You might not be abe to read the full texts of certain articles for free but more often than not the abstract provides the meat of the research so no need to purchase...


One on 8-10% sulfur treatment efficacy as well: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22395587

Awesome, once we clear the mite, we become more immune to future infestations!

Scabies: important clinical consequences explained by new molecular studies.

---> http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22726646

... "These efforts put today's scabies research in a unique position to design and test small molecules that may specifically interfere with mite-derived molecules, such as digestive proteases and mite complement inhibitors. The porcine scabies model will be available to trial in vivo treatment with potential inhibitors. New therapies for scabies may be developed from these studies and may contribute to reduce the spread of scabies and the subsequent prevalence of bacterial skin infections and their devastating sequelae in the community."
