Spirovets an antibacterial drug in the form of a solution for injection, containing in 1.0 ml 600,000 IU of spiromycin as an active ingredient, and benisyl alcohol and water as auxiliary substances.
Spiromycin is a part of spirovet, it is an antibiotica broad spectrum of action from the group of macrolides with bacteriostatic, and in high concentrations bactericidal activity against gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms, as well as mycoplasmas. The mechanism of its antibacterial activity is to suppress the synthesis of bacterial protein at the level of the SOS subunit of ribosomes. Spromycin inhibits the ability of bacterial cells (especially gram-positive cocci) to adhere to ethithelial cells and stimulates the phagocytic activity of polynuclear neutrophils. Spiramycin is highly lipophilic and, after intramuscular injection, easily penetrates into all body tissues, where it keeps its effect for up to 21 hours. The elimination of the antibiotic from the body occurs mainly by bile (about 80%), due to which it also has a bactericidal effect in the intestine.
Spirovet is used in the treatment of cattle and pigs with infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tract caused by microorganisms sensitive to spiromycin.
