4 CLINICAL PARTICULARS
4.1 Target Species
4.2 Indications for use, specifying the target species
For the treatment and control of the following parasites:
Gastrointestinal Roundworms (adult and fourth-stage larvae):
Ostertagia spp. (including inhibited O. ostertagi)
Strongyloides papillosus (adult only)
Nematodirus helvetianus (adult only)
Nematodirus spathiger (adult only)

The veterinary medicinal product may also be used as an aid in the control of biting lice (Damalinia bovis) and the
mange mite Chorioptes bovis, but complete elimination may not occur.
When cattle have to graze on pasture contaminated with infective larvae of cattle nematodes, treatment with the
product at the recommended dose rate can control re-infection with Haemonchus placei and Cooperia spp., acquired up
to 14 days after treatment, Ostertagia ostertagi and Oesophagostomum radiatum acquired up to 21 days after treatment
and Dictyocalus viviparus acquired up to 28 days after treatment.
This product is not to be used intramuscularly or intravenously. This product is registered for use in cattle only. Do not
use in other species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur.
Do not use in animals with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient or any of the excipients.
4.4 Special warnings for each target species
4.5 Special precautions for use
Special precautions for use in animals
The timing for treatment should be based on epidemiological factors and should be customised for each individual
farm. A dosing programme should be established by the veterinary surgeon.
Veterinary advice should be sought on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve adequate
parasite control, and to reduce the likelihood of anthelmintic resistance developing. Veterinary advice should also be
sought if the product does not achieve the desired clinical effect, as other diseases, nutritional disturbances or
anthelmintic resistance might be involved.
Frequent and repeated use may lead to the development of resistance. It is important that the correct dose is given in
order to minimize the risk of resistance. To ensure administration of a correct dose, bodyweight should be determined
as accurately as possible. The accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. If animals are to be treated
collectively rather than individually they should be grouped according to their bodyweight and dosed accordingly, in
order to avoid under- or overdosing.
Avermectins may not be well tolerated in non-target species. Cases of intolerance resulting in fatalities have been
reported in dogs, especially Collies, Old English Sheep Dogs and related breeds or crosses, and also in turtles/tortoises.
Divide doses in excess of 10 ml between different injection sites and use different sites to those used for other
Swab septum before removing each dose. Avoid the introduction of contamination during use.
When using the 250 ml and 500 ml pack sizes, use only automatic syringe equipment. For the 50 ml pack size, the use
of a multidose syringe is recommended.
Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the medicinal product to animals
Do not eat, drink or smoke while handling the product.
Wash hands after use.
Take care to avoid self-administration; the product may cause local irritation and/or pain at the site of injection.
In the event of accidental skin contact, wash the affected area immediately with soap and water. If accidental eye
exposure occurs, flush the eyes immediately with water.
4.6 Adverse reactions (frequency and seriousness)
Transitory discomfort has been observed in some cattle following subcutaneous administration. Soft tissue swellings
may occur at the site of injection. These reactions resolve over time without treatment.
4.7 Use during pregnancy, lactation or lay
The product is safe for use at any stage of pregnancy or lactation. However, the product is not permitted for use in
animals producing milk for human consumption, including pregnant animals intended to produce milk for human
consumption. The product will not affect the fertility of cows and bulls and can be given to all ages of animals
including young calves.
4.8 Interaction with other medicinal products and other forms of interaction
No interactions have been identified with other products.
4.9 Amounts to be administered and administration route
The product should be given only by subcutaneous injection at the recommended dosage level of 1ml/50 kg
bodyweight (based on a dosage level of 200 mcg ivermectin plus 2 mg clorsulon per kg bodyweight) under the loose
skin in front of, or behind, the shoulder. Divide doses greater than 10 ml between two injection sites. A sterile 17 gauge
½-inch (15-20 mm) needle is recommended. When the temperature of the product is below 5ºC, difficulty in
administration may be encountered due to increased viscosity. Warming the product and injection equipment to about
15ºC will greatly increase the ease with which the product can be injected. Different injection sites should be used for
other parenteral products.
4.10 Overdose (symptoms, emergency procedures, antidotes), if necessary
The administration of 5 ml per 50kg bodyweight (5 x the recommended dose rate.) resulted in injection site lesions
(including swelling, sensitivity, oedema and inflammation).
No other drug-related adverse reactions are expected.
Meat and offal: 66 days after the last treatment.
Not permitted for use in animals producing milk for human consumption, including pregnant animals intended to
produce milk for human consumption.
5 PHARMACOLOGICAL or IMMUNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES
ATC Vet Code: QP54AA51
Pharmacotherapeutic Group: Endectocides, ivermectin combinations.
5.1 Pharmacodynamic properties
Ivermectin is a member of the macrocyclic lactone class of endectocides which have a unique mode of action.
Compounds of the class bind selectively and with high affinity to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels which occur in
invertebrate nerve and muscle cells. This leads to an increase in the permeability of the cell membrane to chloride ions
with hyperpolarization of the nerve or muscle cell, resulting in paralysis and death of the parasite. Compounds of this
class may also interact with other ligand-gated chloride channels, such as those gated by the neurotransmitter gammaaminobutyric
The margin of safety for compounds of this class is attributable to the fact that mammals do not have glutamate-gated
chloride channels, the macrocyclic lactones have a low affinity for other mammalian ligand gated chloride channels
and they do not readily cross the blood-brain barrier.
Clorsulon is rapidly absorbed into the circulating blood. Erythrocytes with bound drug as well as plasma are ingested
by Fasciola spp. Adult Fasciola spp. are killed by clorsulon because of inhibition of enzymes in the glycolytic
pathway, which is their primary source of energy.
5.2 Pharmacokinetic properties
Maximum plasma concentration
After subcutaneous administration of 2 mg clorsulon and 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg bodyweight, maximum plasma
concentrations of ivermectin (Cmax: 65.80 ng/ml) were achieved 1-2 days after treatment and maximum plasma
concentrations of clorsulon (Cmax: 2.58 μg/ml) were achieved approximately 8 hours after treatment
Excretion: length of time and route
A dose rate of 2 mg clorsulon and 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg bodyweight was administered by subcutaneous injection.
For ivermectin, liver had the highest average residues, peaking on day 7 post dose at an average of 220 ppb. Depletion
followed so that by days 28 and 35 the liver residues were 11 and 6 ppb respectively. Fat residues also peaked on day 7
at an average of 160 ppb. They decreased to 6 and 4 ppb by days 28 and 35 respectively. Muscle and kidney residues
were negligible at 1 and 2 ppb respectively by day 28.
For clorsulon, kidney had the highest average residues of 0.54 ppm (540ppb) on day 3 post dose. At the same time,
liver averaged 0.20 ppm, muscle averaged 0.06 ppm and fat averaged 0.02 ppm. Rapid depletion followed, resulting in
average residues at or below the detection limit of 0.01 ppm by day 21 for all tissues.
In cattle receiving a single dose of tritium-labelled ivermectin (0.2-0.3 mg/kg bodyweight), analyses showed that
composites of faeces collected during the first 7 days after dosing contained almost all the dosed radioactivity, only
about 1-2% being excreted in the urine. Analyses of the faeces showed that about 40-50% of the excreted radioactivity
was present as unaltered drug. The remaining 50-60% was present as metabolites or degradation products.
During the first 7 days following intra-ruminal administration of 7 mg/kg clorsulon to a 270 kg steer, about 90% of the
radiolabel in the administered dose was found in the urine (25%) and the faeces (65%).
