TROBICIN SUMMARY

Trobicin®
spectinomycin for injectable suspension, USP

TROBICIN Sterile Powder contains spectinomycin hydrochloride which is an aminocyclitol antibiotic produced by a species of soil microorganism designated as Streptomyces spectabilis. Sterile spectinomycin hydrochloride is the pentahydrated dihydrochloride salt of spectinomycin.

TROBICIN Sterile Powder is indicated in the treatment of acute gonorrheal urethritis and proctitis in the male and acute gonorrheal cervicitis and proctitis in the female when due to susceptible strains of Neisseria gonorrhoeae. Men and women with known recent exposure to gonorrhea should be treated as those known to have gonorrhea.

The in vitro susceptibility of Neisseria gonorrhoeae to spectinomycin hydrochloride can be tested by agar diluted methods. TROBICIN Susceptibility Powder is available for this purpose and its package insert should be consulted for details.

To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain the effectiveness of TROBICIN Sterile Powder and other antibacterial drugs, TROBICIN Sterile Powder should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy.

Pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of spectinomycin after i.v., i.m., s.c. and oral administration in broiler chickens. [2007.04]
A pharmacokinetic and bioavailability study of spectinomycin was conducted in healthy broiler chickens following administration of a single (50 mg/kg bw) intravenous (i.v.), intramuscular (i.m.) and subcutaneous (s.c.) dose and oral doses of 50 and 100 mg/kg bw.The absolute bioavailability (F) of spectinomycin was 11.8% and 26.4% after oral administration of 50 and 100 mg/kg bw respectively.

The effects of lincomycin-spectinomycin and sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim on hyaluronidase activities and sperm characteristics of rams. [2003.07]
The effects of lincomycin-spectinomycin and sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim combinations on the hyaluronidase enzyme of serum and semen and on sperm characteristics in rams were determined. Thirthy-two Akkaraman rams were used... However, the use of both antibiotic combinations in breeding rams during the ramming season is not advisable due to the decrease of sperm concentration.

Therapeutic efficacy of water-soluble lincomycin-spectinomycin powder against porcine proliferation enteropathy in a European field study. [2000.01.15]
Controlled clinical trials to a standardised protocol were conducted into the effect of a water-soluble antibiotic on proliferative enteropathy and its causative agent (Lawsonia intracellularis) on commercial pig farms at six sites in four European countries... In two trials, the absence of L intracellularis after the treatment ended was confirmed by the PCR.

Effect of spectinomycin on Escherichia coli infection in 1-day-old ducklings. [1993.07]
Two challenge trials and one confirmation trial were conducted to evaluate the efficacy of spectinomycin in the treatment of 1-day-old ducklings infected with Escherichia coli. In the challenge trials, ducklings were injected in the right posterior thoracic air sac with 0.2 cm3 of broth containing 10(8) colony-forming units E...

Human safety and pharmacokinetics of a single intramuscular dose of a novel spectinomycin analog, trospectomycin (U-63,366F). [1990.12]
In this study, local and systemic tolerance and pharmacokinetics of trospectomycin sulfate in human beings were evaluated for the first time. Trospectomycin sulfate (U-63,366F; trospectomycin) or sterile saline was administered to 96 healthy male volunteers in doses ranging from 0.25 ml (75 mg) to 3.3 ml (1,000 mg) in a single intramuscular injection in a double-blind, randomized design...
