Each 1 ml contains: Tulathromycin……………100 mg
Tulathromycin is a semisynthetic macrolide antibiotic of the subclass triamilide. It differs from many other macrolides in that it has a long duration of action that is, in part, due to its three amine groups. Tulathromycin is a bacteriostatic agent and acts by interfering with protein synthesis by reversibly binding to the 50S subunit of the ribosome. It binds at the donor site, thus preventing the translocation process necessary to keep the peptide chain growing.
Tulathromycin is antibiotic active against most aerobic and anaerobic Gram-positive bacteria and
Gram-negative bacteria including Haemophilus spp., Neisseria spp., Pasteurella multocide, Mannheimia haemolytica, Histophilus somni, Moraxella bovis, Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae. It is also active against atypical mycobacteria, Mycobacterium, Mycoplasma Chlamydia and Rickettsia spp.
