The combination of sulphadiazine and trimethoprim is extensively used in farm animal species; however, there are no data concerning its pharmacokinetics after intramuscular administration in sheep. Twelve rams of the Chios breed were used to study the disposition of sulphadiazine, its metabolite N4-acetylsulphadiazine and trimethoprim after intravenous (i.v.) and intramuscular (i.m.) administration of a sulphadiazine/trimethoprim (5:1) combination in sheep. Sulphadiazine bioavailability (±SD… CONTINUE READING
