Pharmacological properties

Salinomycin is an eimeriostatic of the ionophore group, which is effective against eimeriae (E. acervulina, E. tenella, E. brunetti, E. maxima, E. necatrix, E. mivati, E. meleagridis, E. meleagrimitis, E. bovis) in the stages of sporozoites, trophozoites and schizoites of the first generation. The drug inhibits transport of monovalent ions of Na+ and К+ through cell membrane of a single-cell parasite, which causes its death. Salinomycin is also effective against gram-positive (Clostridium spp.) and gram-negative microorganisms (Serpulina (Treponema) hyodysenteriae). It increases weight gaining ratio and feed conversion ratio in ruminants and swine.
