Abstract

1. Laying hens were given food containing per kg diet: 1 mg pyrimethamine, 10 mg sulphadimethoxine (SDM) or 1 mg pyrimethamine with 10 mg SDM, for 14 days. Residues in the eggs were determined by high performance liquid chromatography. 2. Pyrimethamine was mainly found in yolk. Its concentration was slightly higher when it was given with SDM. 3. The concentrations of SDM in eggs were not different when it was given alone or in combination with pyrimethamine. 4. After withdrawal, pyrimethamine residues decreased below the detection limit (0.02 mg/kg) in the yolk after 11 to 12 d and in the albumen after 2 to 3 d. SDM in yolk fell below the detection limit (0.01 mg/kg) on day 7, whereas in albumen it was not detectable after 2 to 3 d.
