Composition: Each 1 ml. contains:
Florfenicol 100 mg
Florfenicol is a structurally analogous of thiamphenicol, is a new antibiotic possessing a wide spectrum of activity against both gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria is structurally related to thiamphenicol; however, florfenicol contains fluo¬rine atom at position 3. The fluorine molecule substitution at the position also reduces the number of sites available for bacterial acetylation reactions to occur, possibly making the antibiotic more resistant to bacterial inactivation. Florfenicol lacks the p-NO2 group that could contrib¬ute to the induction of aplastic anemias associated with chloramphenicol use in humans. Florfenicol has been found to be as potent as or more potent than either chloramphenicol or thiamphenicol against many organisms in vitro.
Florfenicol showed greater activity than chloramphenicol and thiamphenicol especially against Pasteurella, Salmonella, E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus spp., Proteus, Pasteurella spp., and Clostridia.
AVIFLOR 10% liquid is indicated for treatment of diseases affecting respiratory and gastrointestinal systems, or any other systemic bacterial infection that might be caused by either secondary or primary infection caused by a wide range of gram positive or gram negative as well as anaerobic bacteria.
