Pharmacological properties

АТСvet: QJ01. Antibacterials for systemic use. QJ01DE90. Cefquinome.

Cefquinome is the fourth generation cephalosporin, which has a broad spectrum of antibacterial action against most gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, particularly, including but not limited to Escherichia coli, Enterobacter spp., Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., Clostridium spp., Actinobacillus spp., Citrobacter spp., Klebsiella spp., Pasteurella spp., Proteus spp., Salmonella spp., Serratia marcescens, Histophilus somni, Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Bacillus spp., Corynebacterium spp., Bacteroides spp., Fusobacterium spp., Prevotella spp. and Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae as well as against β-lactamase producing strains. The mechanism of bactericidal effect consists in inhibition of cell membrane synthesis in microorganisms.

After parenteral administration cefquinome penetrates into systemic circulation, reaching its maximum concentration in blood serum in 60-90 minutes in cattle and 15-60 minutes in swine and being maintained at therapeutic level for 24 hours. The level of binding of cefquinome with proteins of blood serum does not exceed 5%. Cefquinome is relatively easy eliminated from the body (half-life period makes 2-2.5 hours in cattle and 9 hours in swine), primarily in unchanged form with urine.


Cattle: treatment of animals against acute mastitis (including mastitis caused by Escherichia coli), escherichiosis (colibacillosis), respiratory diseases caused by Pasteurella multocida, P. haemolytica and other cefquinome-sensitive microorganisms as well as panaritium, hoof sole ulcer, purulent pododermatitis, septicemia, bacterial interdigital dermatitis and necrobacillosis.

Swine: treatment of animals against MMA (mastitis-metritis-agalactia) syndrome, meningitis, arthritis, dermatitis as well as diseases of respiratory organs caused by Pasteurella multocida, Haemophillus parasuis, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Streptococcus suis and other cefquinome-sensitive bacteria.
