Biological Activity

Description Marbofloxacin is a potent antibiotic inhibiting bacterial DNA replication.
Topoisomerase II [1] Topoisomerase IV [1]
In vitro

Marbofloxacin is a fluoroquinolone antimicrobial agent developed exclusively for veterinary use. Marbofloxacin exhibits high bactericidal activity against a broad spectrum of aerobic Gram-negative and some Gram-positive bacteria, as well as Mycoplasma spp. As the third generation fluoroquinolone, Marbofloxacin also mainly targets replication and transcription enzymes such as DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV, which are both essential for bacterial viability. Marbofloxacin has a mycoplasmacidal effect during the exponential phase but not during the lag phase, in both the M. hyopneumoniae 116 wild-type strain and a clone isolated 4 days post-marbofloxacin treatment in vivo at the therapeutic dose. [1] Marbofloxacin significantly kills Leishmania promastigotes and intracellular amastigotes in a dose-dependent manner, more efficient than meglumine antimoniate and sodium stibogluconate. After treatment with Marbofloxacin, macrophages acquire resistance to infection and enhanced antileishmanial activity through the NO synthase pathway. [2]

In vivo Marbofloxacin treatment at the therapeutic dose does not eliminate M. hyopneumoniae, with 87.5 to 100% of the pigs still positive at the end of the assays, and is not effective in significantly reducing clinical signs. Nevertheless, Marbofloxacin treatment seems to decrease the lung lesion scores. [1] Administration of Marbofloxacin at 6 mg/kg once daily for 7 days in a Staphylococcus aureus infection in tissue cages in ponies is not effective for the elimination of S. aureus infections from secluded sites.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
