Each Vial Contains:  
Sterile Ceftiofur Sodium I.P. Eq to Anhydrous Ceftiofur  1000 mg.


VESTIFUR injection contains the sodium salt of Ceftiofur, a broad spectrum cephalosporin anti – bacterial active against aerobic and anaerobic gram- positive and gram – negative bacteria including Beta – lactamase – producing strains.

Ceftiofur sodium (C19H16N5NAO7S3) has a molecular weight of 545.54 and chemically is 5-Thai-1azabicyclo[4.2.0]Oct-2-ene-carbolic acid,7-[{2-amino-4-iazoly}{methoxyimino}-Acetyl amino]-3-{{(2-furanylcarbonyl}thio]methyl]-8-oxo-mono sodium salt.



Ceftiofur produces its bactericidal effect by inhibition of bacterial cell wall synthesis. The site of action for beta- lactam antibacterial is the penicillin – binding proteins (PBPs)on the inner surface of the bacterial cell membrane that interfere in production of peptidoglycans and subsequently lysis of the bacterial cell.


After administration, Ceftiofur disposition follows the two compartment model and attains peak serum concentration within 30-60 minutes in adult cattle, 70 minutes in goat and 60 minutes in horse after IM administration and 45minutes in dog and 50 minutes in chick after SC administration with wide distribution in body tissues. Ceftiofur in the body is metabolized into desfuroylceftiofur, the principle active metabolites. Desfuroylceftiofur has an equivalent anti- microbial activity to Ceftiofur against the bacteria. The active metabolite is reversibly bound to plasma proteins. Due to transportation with these proteins, the metabolite concentrates at site of infection, is active and remains active in presence of necrotic tissue and debris.
