Composition1 ml of the preparation contains active substance:
free acid of crystalline сeftiofur -100 mg.
Auxiliary substances: cottonseed oil, triglycerides with medium length of chain.
Pharmacological propertiesATC vet classification code QJ01 – anti-infective veterinary preparations for system application.
Сeftiofur is a semi-synthetic antibiotic of third generation cephalosporins group. It possesses a wide spectrum of action against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (Pasteurella haemolytica (Mannheimia spp.), Escherichia coli, Pasteurella multocida, Haemophilus somnus, Heamophilus parasuis, Fusobacterium necrophorum and Bacteroides melaninogenicus (Porphyromonas asaccharolytica), Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Fusobacterium necrophorum, Pasteurella multocida, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae and Streptococcus suis). Сeftiofur inhibits (suppresses) synthesis of cell walls of bacteria, suppressing synthesis of peptidoglycan.
Сeftiofur shows active effect on the following pathogens which cause respiratory and other infectious diseases in pigs: Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Pasteurella multocida, Heamophilus parasuis and Streptococcus suis.
After parenteral administration, сeftiofur is rapidly metabolized into desferalceftiofur, active metabolite. Due to the binding to plasma proteins, active ceftiofur metabolite is concentrated in the site of inflammation.
Maximum concentration in blood plasma is observed after 22 hours after administration of the preparation. Preparation excretion from the organism occurs within 10 days after administration. Сeftiofur is excreted from organism mostly with urine and partially with feces.
ApplicationTreatment of pigs suffering from septicemia, polyarthritis, polyserositis as well as when pulmonary organs diseases and other infectious diseases caused by microorganisms sensitive to ceftiofur.
