CHLORTETRACYCLINE HYDROCHLORIDE

  

Composition

Contains per g:
Chlortetracycline hydrochloride 1,000 mg

Description

Chlortetracycline HCl is characterised by its broad antimicrobial spectrum of activity. When applied orally it is rapidly absorbed in the digestive tract, allowing high blood and tissue levels to be attained. By inhibiting the metabolism of glutaminic acid, it prevents protein synthesis in micro-organisms. It acts bacteriostatically upon a great number of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, like Salmonella and Pasteurella. Chlortetracycline HCl is not completely absorbed from the digestive tract and is retained there in relatively large amounts. There it comes in direct contact with pathogenic microflora, where its bacteriostatic effect is manifested. Chlortetracycline is particularly indicated in the prophylaxis and therapy of intestinal and respiratory infections in poultry diseases. In therapeutic doses it is non-toxic.
