PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTION


Flavomycin (bambermycins) is a performance enhancing antibiotic intended and available solely for use in animal nutrition. Its effect is to inhibit the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. Flavomycin is predominately effective against gram-positive pathogenic bacteria. However, it does not have significant action against lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, and other protective bacteria.

For improved weight gain and feed efficiency in broiler chickens, turkeys and swine.

 

 

WARNING


Flavomycin has no precautions or warnings to humans on its label pertaining to mixing and handling and is non-hazardous when used according to label directions.

FURTHER INFORMATION

 


Flavomycin has no precautions or warning to humans on its label pertaining to mixing and handling and is non-hazardous when used according to label directions. There is no significant effect on the environment since bambermycins excreted in the feces is rapidly degraded in the soil and in lagoons by natural organisms, and is not absorbed by plants grown in soil containing manure of animals fed Flavomycin. Cattle and horses can safely graze pastures containing manure of animals fed Flavomycin.
