Effect of pyrogen induced fever on the biokinetics of cefazolin in goats
BK Roy, KP Yadava, NC Banerjee
Biokinetics of cefazolin (CFZ) after single dose i.m. at the dose of 30 mg/kg was studied in afebrile and febrile goats. The mean cpmax of CFZ was higher (33.00 ( 2.14 (g ml-1) in afebrile as compared to that in febrile goats (19.59 (1.93 (gml-1). However, the tcpmer remained the same (4.0 h) in both the groups. The t1/2( mean value was significantly (P < 0.05) longer in the febrile goats (1.42 ( 0.14 h) as compared to that in the normal (1 .OO ( 0.04 h). The average AUC was significantly (P < 0.01) larger in normal goats (62.88 ( 4.30 (g ml-1) than that in the febrile goats (47.70 ( 2.61 (g ml-1). The dosage regimen of CFZ calculated on the basis of relevant biokinetic parameter under febrile situation has been suggested.
