Pharmacological properties

The drug composition includes the combination of enrofloxacin, tilmicosin and trimethoprim, which has a synergistic antimicrobial effect.

Enrofloxacin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic of the fluoroquinolones group, which demonstrates activity against gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms (Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Clostridium spp., Listeria monocytogenes, Corynebacterium spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli, Haemophilus spp., Salmonella spp., Klebsiella spp., Proteus spp., Pasteurella spp. etc.) as well as mycoplasma (Mycoplasma spp.) and chlamydiae (Chlamydia spp.). Its mechanism of action is related to inhibition of bacterial DNA-gyrase, which results in violation of DNA replication in microorganisms.

Trimethoprim is a broad-spectrum antibacterial of the diaminopyrimidines group. It is effective against gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms (E. сolі, Klebsiella spp., Salmonella spp., Pasteurella spp., Enterobacter spp., Proteus spp., Shigella spp., Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Haemophilus spp., Chlamydia spp.) as well as toxoplasma and coccidia. The mechanism of action of trimethoprim consists in inhibition of bacterial reductase of dihydrofolic acid.

Tilmicosin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic of the macrolides group, which is effective against agents of respiratory diseases (M. gallisepticum, M. synoviae, P. multocida and Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale). Tilmicosin inhibits synthesis of protein in microorganisms by way of interaction with ribosomes of bacterial cells.

Administration
