Each ml solution contains: 200 mg oxytetracycline base (as dihydrate).
Spectrum of activity:
Oxytetracycline is a broad spectrum antibiotic, with bacteriostatic action against a large number of Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms, (like streptococci, staphylococci, Pasteurella spp., Brucella spp., Corynebacteria spp., Actinobacillus spp., Eperythrozoon spp., Bordetella spp., Ehrlichia spp., coliforms, Salmonella spp.) and spirochetes, mycoplasmas, Rickettsiae spp., Chlamydia spp. and some protozoa. Activity against Pseudomonas-, Proteus– and Klebsiella spp. is low.
Applied parenterally, oxytetracycline penetrates quickly into the blood and tissues, but the advanced effect of this preparation is the extremely long therapeutic effect. Oxytetracycline acts synergistic with polymyxin.
