Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) (cloxacillin benzathine) for Intramammary Infusion into the Dry Cow is a product which provides bactericidal activity against gram-positive bacteria. The active agent, Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) benzathine, is a sparingly soluble salt of the semisynthetic penicillin, Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium). Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) is a derivative of 6-aminopenicillanic acid, and therefore is chemically related to other penicillins. It has, however, the antibacterial properties described below, which distinguish it from certain other penicillins.
Each 10 mL disposable syringe contains Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) benzathine equivalent to 500 mg of Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) activity in a stable peanut oil gel. This product was manufactured by a non-sterilizing process.
Do not store above 25°C (77°F). Do not freeze.
In the non-lactating mammary gland, Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) (cloxacillin benzathine) provides bactericidal levels of the active antibiotic, Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium), for a prolonged period of time. This prolonged activity is due to the low solubility of the Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) benzathine and to the slow-release oil-gel base. This prolonged contact between the antibiotic and the pathogenic organism enhances the probability of a bacteriological cure.
Amplus Injections (Cloxacillin Sodium) is not destroyed by the enzyme, penicillinase, and therefore, is active against penicillin-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus. It is also active against non-penicillinase-producing Staphylococcus aureus as well as Streptococcus agalactiae.
