  • Pharmacological properties

    Levofloxacin is a broad-spectrum fluroquinolone antibiotic with a bactericidal effect against aerobic Gram-positive microorganisms, aerobic Gram-negative microorganisms, anaerobic, and other microorganisms.

    Mode of action: levofloxacin blocks DNA-gyrase (topoisomerase II) and topoisomerase IV, disrupts supercoiling and cross-linking of deoxyribonucleic acid breaks, inhibits deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis, and caused profound metabolic alterations in cytoplasm, cell walls, and membranes.

    As a representative of the new generation, levofloxacin allows overcoming microbial resistance to previous generations fluoroquinolones, including enrofloxacin.

    Levofloxacin is quickly and almost completely absorbed after oral intake. It is mainly eliminated from the body by the kidneys with glomerular filtration or tubular secretion. Administered orally, it is mostly excreted unchanged with urine within 48 hours.

    Escherichia coli and Salmonella spp. are the main bacterial pathogens in young pigs, showing resistance to enrofloxacin. Thus, the use of Lexoflon OR makes it possible to effectively fight bacterial infection, overcoming resistance to previous generations of fluoroquinolones.

  • Dosage and route of administration

    Lexoflon OR is administered orally to an animal or groups of animals with drinking water:

    • to pigs at a dose of 1.0 mL per 20 kg of animal body weight (7.5 mg of levofloxacin per 1 kg of animal body weight), daily during 3 to 5 days;

    • to poultry at a dose of 1,0 mL per 20 kg of animal body weight (7,5 mg of levofloxacin per 1 kg of animal body weight), daily during 3 to 5 days.
