AMOXYCOL INJ.

Suitable for:

COMPOSITION:

Contains per ml:
Amoxycillin trihydrate 100 mg
Colistin sulphate 250,000 IU

DESCRIPTION:

The combination of amoxycillin and colistin has additional antibacterial action. Amoxycillin is a semi-synthetic broad-spectrum penicillin with bactericidal action against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The action is based on inhibition of the bacterial cell wall formation through interference of the muco-peptide synthesis. Susceptible bacteria for this formulation are Streptococci, penicillinase negative Staphylococci, Haemophilus spp., Corynebacterium spp., Brucella spp., Shigella spp., Fusiformis spp., Clostridium spp., Spherophorus necrophorus and Erysipelothrix.
Colistin, a cyclic poly-peptide antibiotic has bacterial action against selected Gram-negative bacteria. The primary bacterial effect of colistin is a blockade of the cell division of bacteria followed by secondary progressive lysis. Susceptible bacteria are Aerobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Haemophilus spp., Pasteurella spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Vibrio spp., and Paracolon bacteria.

INDICATIONS:

Amoxycol Inj. is effective against infections caused by bacteria susceptible to the combination of amoxycillin and colistin, like respiratory, gastrointestinal, and urogenital infections and secondary bacterial infections during the course of viral diseases in cattle, calves and pigs.

SIDE EFFECTS:
