ATCvet Code: QA12CX90
5.1 Pharmacodynamic particulars:
Toldimfos is an organic α-amino phosphorous compound.
The precise mode of action of toldimfos is unknown. Toldimfos has only a
low toxic potential and no teratogenic, mutagenic or carcinogenic
5.2 Pharmacokinetic particulars:
Following intramuscular injection of toldimfos in cattle at a dosage level of
10 mg/kg b.w., peak plasma concentrations were observed within 10 – 20
minutes. The mean half-life of toldimfos is serum was 1.07 h in calves and
1.15 h in dairy cows. The mean residence time for toldimfos in blood in
calves was 3.6 h, in cows 3.1 h. toldimfos is eliminated as the parent
compound in the urine. The major fraction of the administered dose is
eliminated within 6 hours, whilst at the 24 hour time-point, only
concentrations in the range of the limit of detection are observed.
Repeated dosing did not lead to bio-accumulation of the test compound.
Elimination of the compound in milk was extremely low, with levels below
the limit of quantification of the analytical technique (limit of quantification
for milk 0.15 μg / kg) at most time points.
