Composition: 1 tablet of 3g contains:

sulfadimidine 2,5 g

Action: Sulfadimidine is highly effective against streptococcus, staphylococcus and gram-negative pathogens - E.coli, salmonella, pasteurella, certain rickettsia and coccidia. It is successfully used in the treatment of atrophic rhinitis in pigs, which is united with Bordetella bronchiseptica.
It belongs to the group of bacteriostatic chemiotherapeutics of wide spectrum. Like other sulfonamides, its mechanism of antimicrobial effect is based on the inhibition of building of paraaminobenzoic acid into folic acid. Sulfadimidine is quickly resorbed and more gradually excreted.
