The effectiveness of clazuril (Appertex), a new anticoccidial agent for the treatment of pigeons is described in the present study. Clazuril, a benzene-acetonitrile derivative, is administered in a single dose. In laboratory studies, 121 carrier pigeons infected with E. labbeana and E. columbarum were treated once with clazuril in gelatin capsules at dose levels of 10 mg, 5 mg, 2.5 mg, 1.25 mg, 0.63 mg or with a placebo. When a single dose of 2.5 mg and higher was administered, all faecal… Expand
Action of the anticoccidial clazuril on the endogenous stages of Eimeria labbeana and E columbarum in experimentally infected pigeons.
It is concluded that clazuril has a coccidiocidal effect on the asexual and sexual developmental stages of both Eimeria species, resulting in a complete interruption of the life cycle. Expand
Pharmacokinetic study of clazuril (Appertex®) in eggs and plasma from laying hens after single or multiple treatments, using a new HPLC method for detection
Results indicate that a single oral dose of CZ could be used as an anticoccidial for laying hens due to the lack of residues in eggs. Expand
