and lasalocid are residues from drugs given to chickens to prevent disease and are regarded as too dangerous for use in human medicine.
Excellent to good efficacy was found in clopidol, decoquinate, diclazuril (1 ppm and 2 ppm), and in lasalocid, narasin and nicarbazin
, robenidine, sulfadimethoxine/ormetoprin, and zoalene (150 ppm).
12 October 2010 - Residues of the coccidiostat nicarbazin have been detected by the Italian authorities in samples taken from a 24.
Nicarbazin residue levels detected by the Italian Office for Food Safety and Nutrition of the Ministero del Lavoro, della Salute e delle Politiche Sociali, amounted to 10.
124/2009, which sets the maximum levels for coccidiostats or histomonostats carry-over residues in food products, and which came into force on 2 March 2009, the maximum residue limit for nicarbazin in poultry meat is 25 [micro]g/kg - ppb.
Although the nicarbazin residue levels found are lower than the legal limit, Italy has decided to re-dispatch the poultry meat consignment to Brazil.
She added that the Committee was disappointed in the progress in reducing the incidence and concentrations of feed additive residues, such as lasalocid and nicarbazin
, in poultry products.
These drugs include nicarbazin, lascalocid, and dimetridazole (DMZ), none of which have been evaluated for safety in humans, claims the report.
Maximum-limit residues of nicarbazin were found in more than 17 percent of chicken livers and two percent of eggs during tests in 1999.
11 substances are concerned: Lasalocid sodium, Narasin, Salinomycin sodium, Monensin sodium, Semduramicin, Maduramicin, Robenidine, Decoquinate, Halofuginone, Nicarbazin
, and Diclazuril.
We tested the efficacy of nicarbazin
(NCZ) as a contraceptive for waterfowl and assessed health effects of NCZ, using domestic mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) as a model for Canada geese (Branta canadensis).
