Socatil Blue 2x100g
Skin and soft tissues lesions
SOCATIL® paste for topical use for horses not intended for human consumption – is a paste based on formosulfathiazole, a sulfamide potentiated through the condensation of sulfathiazole with formaldehyde. It has an intense bacteriostatic action. Because of their structural analogy, sulfathiazole competes with p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) in the interaction with folate-synthetase for the formation of folic acid, leading eventually to inhibition of growth and multiplication of the micro-organisms.
Sulfathiazole is generally active against both Grampositive and Gram-negative bacteria, some strains of Clamydia, Nocardia, Actinomices spp, some protozoas such as coccids and Toxoplasma spp. Some strains of Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Proteus,Clostridium, Leptospira spp. and rickettsia also demonstrate a high degree of sulfamide resistance. The insensitivity of a microorganism to a specific sulfamide usually extends to include other members of this class of active ingredients. With Gram-negative intestinal bacteria, the plasmid-mediated sulfamide-resistance is often associated with resistance to ampicillin and the tetracyclines.
100g of paste contains 50g of formosulfathiazole.
