A commercial team of Alquermes Mexico visits Russia
The application of antibiotics Alquerplus Doxycycline 15% and Aldox in birds and pigs, main subjects of the meetings
The commercial team of Alquermes Mexico visited Moscow (Russia), in June, 2018 to make a first contact with the Russian market. The main companies in the sector in Russia were visited and the antibiotics Alquerplus Doxycycline 15% and Aldox were presented, explaining their functions in birds and pigs.
ANTIBIOTICS OF ALQUERMES MEXICO
In this case, Alquerplus Doxycycline 15%, a broad-spectrum antibiotic with antibacterial action, recommended for the treatment of respiratory and digestive infections in birds (CRD, colibacillosis, mycoplasmosis, coryza, omphalitis, staphylococcus and pasteurellosis) and pigs (actinobacillosis, arthritis, nephritis, pneumonia and diarrhea) was presented. It acts against bacteria such as Pasteurella, Salmonella, Streptococcus, Mycoplasma, Actinobacillus, Corynebacterium, E. coli, Staphylococcus, Clostridium, Chlamydia and Listeria; also, protozoa such as Giardia, among others.
Likewise, the antibiotic based on doxycycline with a high percentage of active ingredient and high stability Aldox, used in fattening birds and pigs also aroused the interest of the attendees.
BACTERIAL INFECTIONS AND MICROPLASMS
Doxycycline is an antibiotic commonly used in veterinary medicine for the treatment of bacterial and mycoplasma infections. In farm animals, it is indicated for ruminants, pigs, chickens and turkeys, but it should not be used in layers, during the productive stage or in lactating ruminants.
It is a semi-synthetic antibiotic of the tetracycline family derived from oxytetracycline. It is a bacteriostatic antibiotic, since it inhibits the synthesis of proteins, but it can also alter the permeability of the cytoplasmic membrane in susceptible organisms.
It has a broad spectrum of action including gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria, Chlamydia, Rickettsia, mycoplasma, Leptospira, Anaplasma and spirochetes.
In addition, since it is more soluble than other tetracyclines, it can reach areas such as the joints (synovial fluid), the central nervous system and the eyes. In this link you can read a research about the sensitivity of bacteria and mycoplasmas from animal origin to doxycycline.
