VITACOCCIDINE

VITACOCCIDINE

Dual action for coccidia free herd

 

COMPOSITION

  • Each 1 liter contains:

Amprolium HCL 244.25 gm (Eq. to Amprolium base 216 gm) Ethopabate 14 gm

 

AMPROLIUM

Amprolium is an organic compound anticoccidial agent (coccidiostal effect) that is a competitive inhibitor of thiamine in the parasite metabolism By blocking thiamine uptake (thiamine pyrophosphate) is a cofactor of several decarboxylase enzymes which play role in carbohydrate synthesis. So it prevents carbohydrate synthesis and interferes wall formation the cocysts, characterized by few resistance.

 

ETHOPABATE

It is an arylamide containing one phenyl ring, belonging to monocyclic aromatics aromatics, is a very safe drug. It has anticoccidial activity especially against intestinal forms. This durg is a competitor of PABA for absorption by the parasite and interferes with folate synthesis. It has good activity against E. acervulina and some strains of E.maxima and E. brunette, which improves the coccidiostatic effect of amprolium.
