Abstract

The pharmacokinetics and penetration of danofloxacin into the gastrointestinal tract in healthy pigs and in pigs experimentally infected with Salmonella typhimurium were studied. In the infected pigs, a decrease in body clearance and an increase in mean elimination half-life was observed (P < 0.01). Moreover a significant reduction in the volume of the peripheral compartment was found. Danofloxacin distributed well to the gastrointestinal tract achieving high AUC / AUC(plasma)ratios in both groups of pigs. However, compared to the healthy pigs AUC / AUC(plasma)ratios decreased in the infected pigs. Salmonella infection led to an increase in mean residence time (MRT) in the small intestines and lymph nodes and a decrease in MRT in caecum and colon.
