Lincomycin (Lincocin)

An antibiotic produced by Streptomyces lincolnensis var. lincolnensis. It has been used in the treatment of staphylococcal, streptococcal, and Bacteroides fragilis infections.

10/01/2001 - "Based on the results of clinical observations (respiratory signs, rectal temperature, body weight gain, and feed conversion efficiency), macroscopic and histologic lesions of the lungs, and microbiologic findings, the best results were obtained by treatment of pigs with Econor + chlortetracycline, followed by Tetramutin, Pulmotil, Cyfac, and lincomycin + chlortetracycline."
12/08/1984 - "A field trial was carried out on clinically affected pigs, using tiamulin at 10 mg and 15 mg/kg bodyweight given by injection for three consecutive days, by comparing their weight gains and reduction in lameness scores during a seven day trial period (days 0 to 7) with those of negative untreated controls and positive controls injected with lincomycin at 10 mg/kg bodyweight for three days. "
06/01/1982 - "Pigs on the chlortetracycline-sulfamethazine-penicillin diet on the average tended to grow at a faster rate, attained a higher percentage weight gain, and weighed slightly more than pigs on either the lincomycin sulfate or no antibiotic diets. "
02/01/1987 - "Avoparcin, bacitracin methylenedisalisylic acid, efrotomycin, lincomycin, penicillin G procaine, and virginiamycin improved rate of weight gain and feed conversion of chicks and decreased cholyltaurine hydrolase activity in ileal homogenates relative to those of nonmedicated control birds. "
10/01/1984 - "In other experiments bacitracin, penicillin, chlortetracycline, oxytetracycline, erythromycin, tylosin, virginiamycin, lincomycin, bambermycins, and carbadox, all at a level of 55 ppm, improved weight gain and feed efficiency and significantly reduced the weight of the ileum and the number of C.
