Rodotium 10% (thiamulin) injection, 100 ml
100 ml of the drug contain the active substance:
thiamulin hydrogen fumarate – 10.0 g
Excipients: butyl parahydroxybenzoate, propyl gallate, sesame oil.
Tiamulin is a semi-synthetic antibiotic that belongs to the pleuromutilin group. The antibiotic has a bacteriostatic effect, inhibiting protein synthesis in sensitive microorganisms. The drug is active against gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms (Brachyspira innocens, Brachyspira pilosicoli, Leptospira spp., Clostridium perfringens, Streptococcus spp., Staphyloccocus spp., Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae, Listeria scytacogelo, Listeria monocytogege pneumoniae, Haemophilus spp., Bacteroides spp., Campylobacter coli, Lawsonia intracellularis), as well as chlamydia and mycoplasma (Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae, M. hyosynoviae, M. hyorhinis, M. bovis and others).
Tiamulin acts at the 70S ribosomal level, the primary binding site is at the 50S sublevel, and the secondary site is possible at the 50S and 30S sublevel junctions. It inhibits the synthesis of proteins by microbes, creating biochemically inactive initiative complexes that inhibit the growth of the polypeptide chain.
Bactericidal concentrations are approximately 50-100 times higher than the bacteriostatic level.
Tiamulin is rapidly absorbed into the blood, is well distributed in the body and is concentrated in the lung tissue after intramuscular injection. Following parenteral administration (doses of 10 and 15 mg / kg bw), the highest serum levels in pigs were detected 2 hours after dosing. After intramuscular injection of tiamulin at a dose of 15 mg / kg m.t. C max and t max in serum are 0.77 mg / ml and 2 hours, respectively. Two hours after administration of the therapeutic dose, the concentrations of tiamulin in the pulmonary (15.6 mg / ml) and bronchial epithelium (6.0 mg / ml) were much higher than in blood plasma. The concentration of tiamulin in the lungs, colonic mucosa and colon was 26.9; 2.58 and 3.09 mg / g, respectively.
More than 95% of the therapeutic dose of tiamulin is excreted from pigs in less than a day, and the half-life is less than one day. Tiamulin is well metabolized, approximately 60% of the administered dose is excreted in the bile, about 29% – in the urine.
Treatment of pigs with dysentery, enzootic pneumonia, pleuropneumonia, arthritis caused by thiamulin-sensitive microorganisms.
Intramuscularly in doses:
in the treatment of dysentery, enterocolitis and proliferative enteropathy, the dose is – 1.0 ml per 12.5 kg of body weight (in severe cases, the injection can be repeated after 24 hours);
in the treatment of enzootic bronchopneumonia and mycoplasmal arthritis in pigs, the dose is 1.5 ml of the drug per 12.5 kg of body weight once a day for 3 days;
in the treatment of actinobacillary pleuropneumonia in pigs, the dose is 2.0 ml of the drug per 12.5 kg of body weight once a day for 3 days.
