Treatment of animals (cattle, dogs, rabbits) eye diseases of parasitic and microbial etiology: thelaziosis of cattle; blepharitis, acute catarrhal, purulent, follicular conjunctivitis; superficial keratitis; keratoconjunctivitis (rickettsial) of infectious or associative invasive-infectious (thelaziosis -microbial) etiology
1 ml of the drug contains:
ivermectin – 2.5 mg
tylosin tartrate – 10 mg
xeroform – 10 mg
DESCRIPTION. Homogeneous transparent viscous yellow liquid.
PHARMACOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS. Gel Oftalmostar – combined drug which includes ivermectin, tylosin tartrate and xeroform. Antiparasitic component ivermectin enhances communication of GABA (gammaaminobutyric acid) with special receptors on nerve endings of parasites by blocking ofnerve impulsesthat leads to the death of larval and mature stages of nematodes (including family Thelaziidae), Acariformes (families Demodecidae, Psoroptidae, Sarcoptidae) and winged insects (Muscidae). Tylosin tartrate is active against many types of microorganisms and their associations: Mycoplasma spp., Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Rickettsia spp.and others. Together with antiseptic xeroformom tylosin inhibits the development of secondary infection. In addition, xeroform has anti-inflammatory and repellent effects. Total synergistic properties of the components of the drug determine its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, nematoid, acaricidal, insecticidal and repellent activities.
