TYLOTONGTylosin Tartrate Injection 30%
Each ml contains Tylosin (as Tylosin Tartrate) 300 mg.
TYLOTONG 30% contains tylosin tartrate as active ingredient. Tylosin is an antibiotic belonging to the group of macrolides; the tartrate salt is very soluble in water. Tylosin interferes with the microbial protein synthesis by inhibiting the enzymatic activity of peptidyltransferase in the ribosomes at the ribosomal 50 S subunit. This causes a bacteriostasis.
Tylosin is a broad-spectrum antibiotic, active against Gram-positive cocci and bacteria (staphylococci, streptococci, Corynebacterium diphteriae), mycoplasmas (Mycoplasma bovis), ureaplasmas.
Tylosin tartrate is absorbed quite quickly from the injection site after intramuscular administration. Tylosin is lipophilic, diffuses very well in the lungs, in the intestinal tissues and in the milk. It is mainly excreted in the bile.
Tylosin is mainly effective against gram positive organisms, some gram-negative bacteria, spirochaetes, mycoplasma and certain vibrios are also susceptible. It is effective in treatment of calf pneumonia and mycoplasma infections in cattle, sheep and goats. It is also effective in treating infectious sinusitis due to mycoplasma gallisepticum.
