Danofloxacin is a new synthetic fluoroquinolone antibacterial agent under development for exclusive use in veterinary medicine. Such use could lead to deposition of low levels of danofloxacin residues in the environment in manure from treated livestock. This study was conducted to evaluate the potential for indigenous soil microorganisms to metabolize danofloxacin. Cultures of 72 soil microorganisms representing a diverse panel of bacteria, fungi and yeast were incubated with danofloxacin… CONTINUE READING
