Information about drug residues and pharmacokinetic parameters in aquatic species is relatively sparse. In addition, it is difficult to rapidly compare data between studies due to differences in experimental conditions, such as water temperatures and salinity. To facilitate the study of aquatic species drug metabolism, we constructed a Fish Drug/Chemical(More)
Liver microsomes from market-size (n = 6) rainbow trout, channel catfish and tilapia were used to investigate in vitro biotransformation kinetics of albendazole (ABZ). ABZ was transformed to a single metabolite, ABZ sulfoxide (ABZ-SO). Catfish displayed the highest maximal velocity (V(max) = 264.0 +/- 58.6 pmols ABZ-SO/min/mg protein) followed by tilapia(More)
Hepatic microsomes and cytosols of channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus), rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), red tilapia (Oreochromis sp.), largemouth bass (Micropterussalmoides), striped bass (Morone saxatilis), hybrid striped bass (M. saxatilis x M. crysops), and bluegill (Lepomis macrochuris) (n=8) were used to study the(More)
The distribution of total 14C residues was studied in egg yolk and albumen after administration of either single or multiple oral dosages of [14C]sulfamethazine (SMZ). One day after a single dose of [14C]SMZ (121 mg of sulfamethazine, 2.42 x 10(7) dpm), the 14C residue concentration peaked in egg albumen and egg yolk with the concentration in the former(More)
A liquid chromatographic procedure for the determination of albendazole ([5-(propylthio)-1H-benzimidazol-2yl]carbamic acid methyl ester) and its major metabolites, albendazole sulfoxide, albendazole sulfone, and albendazole-2- aminosulfone in rainbow trout, tilapia, and salmon muscle with adhering skin tissue is described. The muscle tissue samples are made(More)
A reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method has been developed for the determination of neomycin in plasma and urine. The plasma was deproteinated with trichloroacetic acid and centrifuged. The supernatant was mixed with ion-pair concentrate and centrifuged again. The resultant supernatant was analyzed by HPLC. Urine was(More)
The residue depletion of albendazole (ABZ) and its metabolites was studied in channel catfish muscle tissue. Channel catfish were dosed once with 10 mg/kg ABZ via stomach tube with manual restraint. Muscle tissue samples were collected at 8, 16, 24, 48, 72, 96 and 120 h postdose. A high-performance liquid chromatographic method was used to assay ABZ and its(More)
The disposition and absorption kinetics of neomycin were studied in healthy ruminating dairy calves (n = 6), approximately 3-months-old. The calves were treated with single intravenous (i.v.) (12 mg/kg), intramuscular (i.m.) (24 mg/kg), oral (p.o.) (96 mg/kg) and repeated p.o. (96 mg/kg, b.i.d., 15 1/2 days) doses of neomycin. A 3-week rest period was(More)
