Lasts 28 days in the lungs for optimal efficacy
One low-volume dose of 1 mL/100 lbs means less handling and more doses per bottle
Rapidly absorbed after administration, reaching peak plasma levels in just 45 minutes
Meat Withdrawal Time
With 21 days meat withdrawal time there’s greater flexibility to make go-to-market decisions
Unique Tri-Basic 16-Ring Macrolide
Zuprevo belongs to a class of antibiotics called macrolides. Macrolides are characterized by a 15- or 16-membered central lactone ring, and they can be classified as mono-basic, di-basic or tri-basic. They control bacteria by inhibiting protein synthesis at the ribosomal level.
Zuprevo is unique in this class because it is the world's first tri-basic 16-membered ring macrolide. Zuprevo is proven effective at controlling bacteria because it binds to more sites in the bacterial ribosome to inhibit protein synthesis.
Because of its unique structure (tri-basic, 16-membered ring) Zuprevo offers a combination of performance properties that other antibiotics can't match: prolonged concentration in lung tissue and bronchial fluids, and rapid absorption in the system.
