Bay Floxin® is used in the treatment of infections susceptible to florfenicol, especially associated with pain, inflammation and fever. It is also used for treatment of respiratory infections (BRD) especially caused by Mannheimia haemolytica, Pasteurella multocida, Histophilus somni, Mycoplasma bovis and fever due to BRD.
Mechanism of action:
Florfenicol is a synthetic broad-spectrum antibiotic that is effective against most gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria isolated from domestic animals. Florfenicol is a fluorinated derivative of chloramphenicol, acts by inhibiting protein synthesis at the ribosomal level and is bacteriostatic. Florfenicol unlike chloramphenicol, does not increase the risk of aplastic anemia in humans and may also affect some chloramphenicol-resistant bacteria.
Flunixin meglumine is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins and thromboxanes by inhibiting the cyclooxygenase enzyme and thereby exerts its analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-endotoxin and antipyretic activity.
