lasalocid

lasalocid

a polyether ionophore related chemically to monensin, used as a growth promotant in cattle and coccidiostat in chickens. It is relatively nontoxic but gross overdosage of cattle causes acute heart failure. Horses are very susceptible and the use of the compound in them is prohibited. Animals may be found dead or show dyspnea, mucosal congestion, diarrhea and cardiac irregularity and tachycardia.

This involves using a coccidiostats such as amprolium, decoquinate or lasalocid.
Among such nutritional measures, some antibiotics such as monensin, lasalocid and salinomycin had also been tested for their effects in mitigating C[H.
Their result details how a soil bacterium, Streptomyces lasaliensis, is able to convert an epoxide into a six-membered cyclic ether during synthesis of lasalocid, a natural polyether antibiotic.
Nicarbazin and lasalocid are residues from drugs given to chickens to prevent disease and are regarded as too dangerous for use in human medicine.
To determine whether chemotherapeutic compounds available for use in domestic poultry are effective at controlling coccidiosis in northern bobwhites (Colinus virginianus), we tested 13 chemotherapeutic anticoccidials including amprolium (250 parts per million [ppm]), clopidol (125 ppm), diclazuril (1 ppm and 2 ppm), decoquinate (30 ppm), lasalocid (120 ppm), monensin (90 ppm), narasin/nicarbazin (36/36 ppm), robenidine (33 ppm), roxarsone (50 ppm), sulfadimethoxine/ormetoprin (125/75 ppm), salinomycin (60 ppm), semduramicin (25 ppm), and zoalene (125 ppm and 150 ppm).

11 substances are concerned: Lasalocid sodium, Narasin, Salinomycin sodium, Monensin sodium, Semduramicin, Maduramicin, Robenidine, Decoquinate, Halofuginone, Nicarbazin, and Diclazuril.
Las drogas disponibles en la actualidad son más de 15, las cuales pueden clasificarse en compuestos de síntesis química (halofuginona, nicarbazina, dilclazuril) y antibióticos ionóforos producidos por fermentación (monensina, salinomicina, lasalocid, narasina).
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.
Producers are also likely to ban lasalocid in pullets, used to protect the birds from coccidiosis, from October.
Now we are being told that more than three million eggs eaten in the UK every day could be contaminated with residues of the toxic drug Lasalocid, a factory farm antibiotic.
Organic farming group the Soil Association issued the advice in light of new Government figures which revealed 12% of eggs tested contained residues of Lasalocid.
