The pharmacokinetics of moxifloxacin was studied following intravenous (i.v.), intramuscular (i.m.) and oral dose of 5 mg/kg to healthy white New Zealand rabbits (n = 6). Moxifloxacin concentrations were determined by HPLC assay with fluorescence detection. The moxifloxacin plasma concentration vs. time data after i.v. administration could best be described(More)
The pharmacokinetics of moxifloxacin was studied following intravenous (IV) and subcutaneous (SC) administration of 5 mg/kg to healthy lactating goats (n = 6). Moxifloxacin concentrations were determined by high performance liquid chromatography assay with fluorescence detection. The moxifloxacin plasma concentration versus time data after IV administration(More)
The pharmacokinetics (PK) of azithromycin after i.v. and i.m. injection at a single dosage of 20 mg/kg bodyweight was studied in sheep. Blood samples were collected from the jugular vein until 120 h after dosing for both routes. Plasma concentrations of azithromycin were determined by bioassay. The plasma concentration-time data of azithromycin best fitted(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Moxifloxacin is a new fluorquinolone with broad-spectrum activity. It is suitable for treating peritonitis in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The objective of this study was to test stability of moxifloxacin in PD solutions stored at different temperatures. METHODS Dialysis solution bags were used at two glucose concentrations;(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe and analyse the role of the pharmacy department in detecting errors in the prescription of cytostatic drugs. METHOD A retrospective study was carried out over a two year period (2003-2004), which reviewed the errors detected by pharmacists in chemotherapy prescriptions. Medication errors were classified according to the system(More)
The pharmacokinetics of azithromycin after intravenous and intramuscular injection at a single dose rate of 10mg/kg bodyweight were investigated in rabbits by using a modified agar diffusion bioassay for determining plasma concentrations. The plasma creatine kinase activity was determined after i.m. administration for the evaluation of the tissue tolerance.(More)
The pharmacokinetic behaviour of an ampicillin/sulbactam (2:1) combination was studied after intramuscular administration of a single dose (20 mg/kg body weight: 13.33 mg/kg of ampicillin and 6.67 mg/kg of sulbactam) to six sheep and six goats. The objective was to determine whether there were differences between sheep and goats in the disposition profiles(More)
Azithromycin is the first of a class of antimicrobial agents designated azalides. The aim of the present study was to investigate the disposition pharmacokinetics of azithromycin in goats and determine its bioavailability. A cross-over study was carried out in two phases separated by 30 days. Azithromycin was administered at a single dose of 20 mg/kg body(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the disposition kinetics of ampicillin and sulbactam after IV and IM administration of an ampicillin-sulbactam (2:1) preparation and determine the bioavailability of the combined preparation after IM administration in turkeys. ANIMALS 10 healthy large white turkeys. PROCEDURE In a crossover study, turkeys were administered the(More)
Some pharmacokinetic parameters of an ampicillin/sulbactam (2:1) combination were studied in six goats, after intravenous and intramuscular injection at a single dosage of 20 mg/kg bodyweight (13.33 mg/kg of sodium ampicillin and 6.67 mg/kg of sodium sulbactam). The drugs were distributed according to an open two-compartment model. The apparent volumes of(More)
