Ceftisyl is a third generation cephalosporin antibacterial drug.
Ceftiofur (a component of the drug) has broad-spectrum antibacterial effect on gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria (including Pasteurella spp., Haemophilus somnus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Fusobacterium necrophorum, Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Porphyromonas levii). Mechanism of ceftiofur antibacterial action includes inhibition of functional activity of bacterial enzymes (transpeptidases) that participate in peptidoglycan binding (the main component of microorganism cellular wall) causing osmotic balance disorder and bacterial cell destruction. Peak blood concentration of ceftiofur and its metabolites is obtained within 12 hours after administration. It remains at therapeutic level for at least 7 days. Antibiotic is mainly excreted in urine (>70%) and partially in feces.
IndicationsUse Ceftisyl to treat cattle with bacterial respiratory infections, necrobacillosis, acute puerperal endometritis and other primary and secondary infections, agents of which are susceptible to ceftiofur.
