[14C]sarafloxacin was orally administered to six laying hens for five consecutive days. Eggs were collected for 15 days after the initial drug treatment. Egg yolk and egg albumen were separated and assayed for total radioactive residues (TRR) using a combustion oxidizer and scintillation counting techniques. Radioactivity was detected in egg yolk and egg albumen on the second day of dosing and reached a maximum at 24 h after drug withdrawal. Thereafter, the sarafloxacin TRR levels in egg albumen declined rapidly and were undetectable 2 days after the last dose, whereas the levels in egg yolk declined at a much slower rate and were undetectable 7 days after drug withdrawal. In both the egg albumen and yolk, HPLC analysis indicated that the parent sarafloxacin was the major component.
