RP Uppal, SP Verma, SK Garg, RK Roy
Pharmacokinetics and dosage regimen of gentamicin were investigated in rabbits following a single intramuscular administration of 4mg/kg. The absorption and elimination half lives and apparent volume of distribution were 4.8˝ 0.6 min,44.4˝ 9.0 min and 0.45 ˝ 0.11 l/kg ,respectively. Therapeutic plasma levels of 1 ug/ml were maintained upto 2 h. A satisfactory intramuscular dosage regimen would be 3.48 mg/kg and 3.l0mg/kg as priming and maintenaance doses, respectively, to be repeated at 2 h intervals.
