Liquid of light yellow to dark yellow color.
1 ml of the product contains
Marbofloxacin – 40 mg;
Ketoprofen – 60 mg.
ATC vet classification code QJ01 – antimicrobial veterinary medicines for systemic use.
The active substances of the drug are the antibiotic marbofloxacin, which belongs to the group of fluoroquinolones, and ketoprofen – NSAIDs.
Marbofloxacin is active against Gram-negative and Gram-positive microorganisms, and especially against: Staphylococcus spp, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Serratia marcescens, Morganella morganii, Proteus spp., Klebsiella spp., Shigella spp., Pasteurella spp., Haemophilus spp., Moraxella spp., Pseudomonas spp.) and mycoplasmas (Mycoplasma bovis, M. hyopneumoniae). Mechanism of the drug action is to inhibit bacterial DNA – gyrase (topoisomerase II), which stops the process of DNA replication and synthesis.
Ketoprofen is a NSAID based on propionic acid. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects. The mechanism of action is associated with inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis at the level of cyclooxygenase. In addition, ketoprofen inhibits lipooxygenase, has anti-bradykinin activity, stabilizes lysosomal membranes, and causes significant inhibition of neutrophil activity. Ketoprofen is a dual inhibitor of inflammation, blocking the cyclooxygenase and lipooxygenase action pathways, thus preventing the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes.
After parenteral administration, marbofloxacin is rapidly absorbed and reaches a maximum plasma concentration of 1.5 mg/ml in less than 1 hour. Bioavailability is close to 100%. Marbofloxacin binds poorly with plasma proteins (less than 10% in pigs and 30% in cattle), it is well distributed in most tissues (liver, kidneys, skin, lungs, uterus) and reaches higher concentration than in plasma. Marbofloxacin is slowly excreted from young cattle (t1 / 2 = 5-9 hours) and pigs (t1 / 2 = 8-10 hours), rather – in adult cattle (t1 / 2 = 4-7 hours), mainly in active form with urine and feces.
Ketoprofen is rapidly absorbed from the injection site. More than 98% is bound to plasma proteins and accumulates in inflamed tissues. Ketoprofen is metabolized in the liver to inactive metabolites, and 90% is excreted in the urine as glucuronide compounds
INDICATIONS FOR USE
Treatment of cattle and pigs for respiratory diseases accompanied by pain syndrome, inflammation or fever and caused by microorganisms sensitive to marbofloxacin (Pasteurella multocida, Mannheimia haemolytica, Mycoplasma bovis, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae) treatment of cows with acute mastitis, as well as of sows with MMA syndrome (metritis-mastitis-agalactia), caused by microorganisms sensitive to marbofloxacin.
