Resumen : Experimentation in mammals is a long and expensive process in which ethical aspects must beconsidered, which has led the scientific community to develop alternative models such as that ofGalleria mellonella. This model is a cost and time effective option to act as a filter in the drugdiscovery process. The main limitation of this model is the lack of variety in the solvents used toadminister compounds, which limits the compounds that can be studied using this model. Fiveaqueous (DMSO, MeOH, acetic acid, HCl and NaOH) and four non-aqueous (olive oil, isopropylmyristate, benzyl benzoate and ethyl oleate) solvents was assessed to be used as vehicles fortoxicity and antimicrobial activityin vivoassays. All the tested solvents were innocuous at thetested concentrations except for NaOH, which can be used at a maximum concentration of 0.5 M.The toxicity of two additional compounds, 5-aminosalicylic acid and DDT, was also assessed. Theresults obtained allow for the testing of a broader range of compounds using wax moth larvae.This model appears as an alternative to mammal models, by acting as a filter in the drugdevelopment process and reducing costs and time invested in new drugs.
