  • Pharmacological properties

    Florfenicol, an active ingredient of the drug, is a derivative of thiamphenicol where hydroxyl group is substituted with fluorine. It has bacteriostatic activity: it binds with ribosomal subunit 705 of bacterial cell protoplasm, thus blocking peptidyl transferase which leads to inhibition of protein synthesis performed by ribosomes of sensitive microbial cell.

    It is effective against bacteria producing acetyl transferase which are resistant to chloramphenicol.

    Florfenicol has a wide range of antibacterial activity against Streptococcus spp., Salmonella spp., Escherichia coli, Proteus spp., Staphylococcus aureus., Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae, Pasteurella multocida. Pasteurell haemolytica, Bordetella bronchiseptica, Haemophilus spp., Klebciella spp., Ornithobacterium rhinotracheale, Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae. Mycoplasma hyorhinis. Florfenicol is effective against bacteria producing acetyl transferase which are resistant to chloramphenicol.

    After oral administration, florfenicol is well absorbed from GI tract and gets into most organs and tissues but does not penetrate through blood-tissue barriers. Bioavailability of florfenicol after oral administration is 88% in pigs and 55% in poultry. The antibiotic reaches its peak serum concentration after 1 hour and remains at the therapeutic level for at least 24 hours. The antibiotic and its metabolites are eliminated from the body of poultry mostly with litter, in egg-laying poultry - also with eggs, from the body of pigs - mostly with urine and less with feces.

  • Dosage and route of administration
  • Dosage and route of administration

    Florox OR is administered orally to individual animals or groups of animals with drinking water:

    Swine: daily dose 5mg of florfenicol per 1 kg of animal weight ( corresponds to 5 ml of the drug per 100 kg of animal weight) daily for 7 days.

    Poultry: daily dose 20 mg of florfenicol per 1 kg of weight (or 0.2 ml of the drug per 1 kg of weight), which corresponds to: in chickens up to 4 weeks – 100 ml of the drug per 100 l of water (1 ml per 1 l); in poultry of other age categories – 200 ml of the drug per 100 l of water (2 ml per 1 l), daily for 3 days, in salmonellosis for 5 days.

    During the treatment period, animals and poultry shall only drink water that contains the drug. If it is impossible then the daily dose should be divided into 2 parts and given at 12-hour interval.
