Oral solution for calves
Halofuginone (as lactate salt): 0.50 mg eq. to 0.6086 mg of halofuginone lactate.
The active substance, halofuginone, is an antiprotozoal agent of the quinazolinone derivatives group (nitrogenous polyheterocycles). Halofuginone lactate is a salt whose antiprotozoal properties and efficacy against Cryptosporidium parvum have been demonstrated both in in vitro conditions and in artificial and natural infections. The compound has a cryptosporidiostatic effect on Cryptosporidium parvum. It is mainly active on the free stages of the parasite (sporozoïte, merozoïte). The concentrations to inhibit 50% and 90% of the parasites, in an in vitro test system, are IC50 < 0.1 μg/ml and IC90 of 4.5 μg/ml, respectively.
In newborn calves:
- Prevention of diarrhoea due to diagnosed Cryptosporidium parvum infection, in farms with history of cryptosporidiosis.
- Reduction of diarrhoea due to diagnosed Cryptosporidium parvum infection.
