Distribution of orally administered trimethoprim and sulfadiazine into noninfected subcutaneous tissue chambers in adult ponies.

The distribution of trimethoprim (TMP) and sulfadiazine (SDZ) into subcutaneously implanted noninfected tissue chambers was studied in healthy adult ponies. Six ponies were given an oral TMP/SDZ paste formulation at a dose of 5 mg/kg TMP and 25 mg/kg SDZ at 12 h intervals for 2 days in order to reach steady-state concentrations. Plasma concentrations and tissue chamber fluid (TCF) concentrations of both drugs were measured at regular intervals during a period commencing 24 h after the last oral administration. The peak concentration of TMP (mean +/- SD) was 2.92 +/- 0.86 microg/mL for plasma and 1.09 +/- 0.25 microg/mL for TCF. For SDZ, the mean peak concentration was 40.20 +/- 14.74 microg/mL for plasma and 23.48 +/- 5.84 microg/mL for TCF. TMP peak concentrations in plasma were reached at 3.17 +/- 03.48 h and those in TCF at 7.33 +/- 03.72 h. SDZ peak concentrations in plasma were reached at 1.83 +/- 02.04 h and those in TCF at 8.00 +/- 03.10 h. Concentrations of TMP and SDZ in TCF remained above the generally accepted breakpoint for susceptibility (0.5/9.5 for the TMP/SDZ combination) for 12 h. Therefore, in ponies oral administration of TMP/SDZ at a dose rate of 30 mg/kg given twice daily in the form of a paste should be appropriate for effective treatment of infections caused by susceptible bacteria.[1]
