Lincomycin 300 contains lincomycin hydrochloride, an antibiotic produced by Streptomyces lincolnensis var. lincolnensis which is chemically distinct from all other clinically available antibiotics and is isolated as a white crystalline solid.
INDICATIONS FOR SWINE:
Lincomycin 300 is indicated for the treatment of infectious forms of arthritis caused by organisms sensitive to its activity. This includes most of the organisms responsible for the various infectious arthritides in swine, such as staphylococci, streptococci, Erysipelothrix and Mycoplasma spp. It is also indicated for the treatment of mycoplasma pneumonia.
