The antibacterial agent doxycycline hyclate (Dox) is usually administered to broilers in drinking water or as a feed supplement. Parenteral injection is not the usual route for administration, soa long-acting formulation (Dox-LA) was tested to evaluate if serum concentrations can achieve thepharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) ratios regarded as adequate for the drug.
2. A poloxamer-based matrix was used to provide Dox-LA. Serum and tissue concentrations of Dox vstime were determined in two day-old broilers after subcutaneous (SC) injection of Dox-LA or oraladministration of a single bolus of aqueous Dox (Dox-PO), at a dose of 20 mg/kg. Weight gain, feedconversion rate, haematological variables, aspartate aminotransferase and alanine aminotransferaseactivities, blood urea and creatinine were determined and compared for Dox-LA with Dox-PO and non-medicated controls.
3. Dox-LA had a high relative bioavailability (1200%). Maximum serum concentrations were notstatistically different (5Á1 Æ 1Á1 mg/ml for Dox-LA and 6Á1 Æ 1.4 mg/ml for Dox-PO), but half-life of Dox-LAwas much greater than the value obtained for Dox-PO (73Á0 Æ 0Á9 h and 2Á0 Æ 0Á02 h, respectively). Tissueconcentrations were higher, and stayed higher for longer periods in the Dox-LA group.
4. In conclusion, considering the minimum effective serum concentration against Mycoplasma spp is0Á5 mg/ml, a dose-interval of 180 h can be achieved with Dox-LA, but only for 24 h after Dox-PO. BetterPK/PD ratios for Dox-LA should result in improved clinical outcomes compared with Dox-PO.
