Enrotron 100 mg/ml Solution for Use in Drinking Water for Chicken, Turkeys and Rabbits 1L.

Target species
Chicken, turkey, rabbit
Indications for use, specifying the target species
Treatment of infections caused by the following bacteria susceptible to enrofloxacin:

Mycoplasma gallisepticum,
Mycoplasma synoviae,
Avibacterium paragallinarum,
Pasteurella multocida,
Escherichia coli.

Mycoplasma gallisepticum,
Mycoplasma synoviae,
Pasteurella multocida,
Escherichia coli.

For the treatment of infectious diseases due to Pasteurella multocida and bacterial enteritis due to infection with E. coli.

Enrofloxacin should be used where clinical experience, supported where possible by sensitivity testing of the causal organism, indicates enrofloxacin as the active substance of choice.

Do not use for prophylaxis.
Do not use when resistance / cross-resistance to (fluoro)quinoles is known to occur in the flock intended for treatment.
Do not use in case of known hypersensitivity to the active substance, other (fluoro)quinoles or to any of the excipients.

Special warnings for each target species:
Treatment of Mycoplasma spp infections may not eradicate the organism.

Special precautions for use:
i) Special precautions for use in animals

Official and local antimicrobial policies should be taken into account when the product is used.

Fluoroquinolones should be reserved for the treatment of clinical conditions which have responded poorly, or are expected to respond poorly, to other classes of antimicrobials.
Since enrofloxacin was first authorised for use in poultry, there has been widespread reduction in susceptibility of E. coli to fluoroquinolones and emergence of resistant organisms. Resistance has also been reported in Mycoplasma synoviae in the EU.

Whenever possible fluoroquinolones should only be used based on susceptibility testing.

Use of the product deviating from instructions given in the SPC may increase the prevalence of bacteria resistant to fluoroquinolones and may decrease the effectiveness of treatment with other fluoroquinolones due to the potential for cross resistance.
ii)  Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary  medicinal product to animals
Those with known hypersensitivity to (fluoro)quinolones should avoid contact with this product.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes.
Rinse any splashes from skin or eyes immediately with water.
Wash hands and exposed skin after use.
Do not eat drink or smoke whilst handling the product.
Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness):
None known.

Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay:
Not authorised for use in birds producing eggs for human consumption.
Do not administer to layer replacement birds within 14 days of coming into lay.

Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction:
In vitro, an antagonism was shown, when combining fluoroquinolones with bacteriostatic antimicrobial agents such as macrolides or tetracyclines and phenicols. The simultaneous application of substances containing aluminium or magnesium can impair the absorption of enrofloxacin.

Amounts to be administered and administration route:
Chickens and turkeys
10 mg enrofloxacin/kg bodyweight per day for 3-5 consecutive days.

Treatment for 3-5 consecutive days; for 5 consecutive days in mixed infections and chronic progressive forms.

If no clinical improvement is achieved within 2-3 days, alternative antimicrobial therapy should be considered based on susceptibility testing.

Via the drinking water. Always make sure that the entire dose offered has been consumed. The medicated water should be made up fresh each day just before it is offered to the animals. The drinking water must be medicated throughout the treatment period, and no other water source should be available. Determine the bodyweight of the birds as accurately as possible in order to avoid underdosing.

Use only fresh pre-solutions, prepared every day before start of treatment. Pumping systems should be checked constantly to assure proper medication. Empty the water system and fill it with medicated water before starting the treatment.

Calculate the daily quantity (ml) of the product required for treatment period as follows:

Total number of birds x Average body weight in kg x 0.1 = Total volume (ml) per day

The product may be put directly into the header tank or introduced via a water proportioner pump.
10 mg/kg bodyweight per day for 5 consecutive days.

Calculate the daily quantity (ml) of the product required for treatment period as follows:

Total number of rabbits x Average body weight in kg x 0.1 = Total volume (ml) per day

Medicated drinking water should be replaced every 24 hours.

Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary:
No adverse clinical symptoms were observed in chickens and turkeys treated respectively with doses up to 10 and 6 times higher than the therapy dose.

The use of fluoroquinolones during the growth phase combined with a marked and prolonged increase in the intake of drinking water, and hence active ingredient, possibly due to high temperatures, may potentially be associated with damage of the articular cartilage.

Withdrawal period
Meat and offal: 7 days
Meat and offal: 13 days
Meat and offal: 15 days.

Not authorised for use in birds producing eggs for human consumption.
Do not administer to layer replacement birds within 14 days of coming into lay.

Pharmacotherapeutic group: quinolone and quinoxaline antibacterials, fluoroquinolones.
ATCvet code:  QJ01MA90
Pharmacodynamic properties:
Mode of action
Two enzymes essential in DNA replication and transcription, DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, have been identified as the molecular targets of fluoroquinolones. They modulate the topological state of DNA through cleaving and resealing reactions. Initially, both strands of the DNA double helix are cleaved. Then, a distant segment of DNA is passed through this break before the strands are resealed. Target inhibition is caused by non-covalent binding of fluoroquinolone molecules to an intermediate state in this sequence of reactions, in which DNA is cleaved, but both strands are retained covalently attached to the enzymes. Replication forks and translational complexes cannot proceed beyond such nzyme-DNA-fluoroquinolone complexes, and inhibition of DNA and mRNA synthesis triggers events resulting in a rapid, drug concentration-dependent killing of pathogenic bacteria.

Antibacterial spectrum:
Enrofloxacin is active against many Gram-negative bacteria, against Gram-positive bacteria and Mycoplasma spp.
In vitro susceptibility has been shown in strains of (i) Gram-negative species such as Escherichia coli, Pasteurella multocida and Avibacterium (Haemophilus) paragallinarum and (ii) Mycoplasma gallisepticum and Mycoplasma synoviae. (See section 4.5)

Types and mechanisms of resistance:
Resistance to fluoroquinolones has been reported to arise from five sources, (i) point mutations in the genes encoding for DNA gyrase and/or topoisomerase IV leading to alterations of the respective enzyme, (ii) alterations of drug permeability in Gram-negative bacteria, (iii) efflux mechanisms, (iv) plasmid mediated resistance and (v) gyrase protecting proteins. All mechanisms lead to a reduced susceptibility of the bacteria to fluoroquinolones. Cross-resistance within the fluoroquinolone class of antimicrobials is common.

Pharmacokinetic particulars:
Enrofloxacin administered via drinking water to poultry is rapidly and very well absorbed with a bioavailability of approx. 90 %. Maximum plasma concentrations of 2 mg/L are reached within 1.5 hours after a single bolus dose rate of 10 mg/kg body weight with a total systemic availability of 14.4 mg·hr/L. Enrofloxacin is eliminated from the body with a total body clearance of 10.3 mL/min·kg. If dosed as continuous drinking water medication (multiple dosing) steady-state concentrations of 0.5 mg (turkeys) to 0.8 mg (chicken) enrofloxacin per litre are achieved. A high mean volume of distribution (5 L/kg) indicates good tissue penetration of enrofloxacin. Concentrations in target tissues like lungs, liver, kidney, intestine and muscle tissue, exceed plasma concentrations by far. In poultry enrofloxacin is poorly metabolized to its active metabolite ciprofloxacin (approximately 5 %). Enrofloxacin is eliminated from the body at a half-life of 6 hours. Protein binding in poultry is approximately 25 %
