ANCOMOX 70

Water soluble powder

COMPOSITION

Amoxicillin trihydrate eq. 700 mg Amoxicillin – Excipients up to 1 g

PHARMACOLOGICAL PROPERTIES

Amoxicllin is a semi-synthetic, acid-stable broadspectrum penicillin. It inhibits peptidoglycan synthesis of the bacterial cell wall and has a fast bacteriocidal action. Amoxicllin is active against a number of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Resistance against aminopenicillins most often is by plasmid-mediated production of penicillinase and occurs most frequently in enterobacteriaceae (E. coli, Salmonella spp.) and Staphylococci.

The absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is little influenced by the presence of food (bioavailability appr. 60% in chickens). Amoxicillin is about 30%áboundá to serum proteins. The concentrations in liver, bile, kidneys, urine, intestinal tissue and contents are clearly higher than in the blood. Here, therapeutic active concentrations can even be obtained against less susceptible germs (e.g. against enteropathogenic bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract). Although the concentrations in the respiratory tract are usually lower than in the blood, they usually exceed the MIC-values of most respiratory pathogens. Amoxicillin is partly metabolised and is mainly excreted with urine, to a lesser extent with the bile. The non-absorbed fraction is excreted with the faeces.

INDICATIONS

For the treatment of infections caused by amoxicillin sensitive germs in poultry, pigs and calves.

Drinking water facilities (tanks, conduite pipes, nipples etc.) should be cleaned properly after cessation of medication.

Do not use in combination with fundamental bateriostatic antibiotics (eg. tetracyclines, macrolides) (possible antagonism).

Administration during pregnancy and lactation is contra-indicated.

Contact dermatitis can occur in persons who are often in contact with this antibiotic. Therefore direct contact with the powder should be avoided.
