D-Cloprostenol sodium injection
It is used for the treatment of cows’ persistent corpus luteum. It induces the dissolution of corpus luteum, and makes cows return to normal estrus.
[Description] This product is a colorless transparent liquid.
[Pharmacological Action] It is prostaglandins drug. D-cloprostenol is a functional synthetic analogue of natural prostaglandin PGF2α, which has a strong effect on dissolving the luteum. D-cloprostenol is 3-4 times more active than cloprostenol (racemic mixture). Strong dissolution of the luteum causes rapid degradation of the corpus luteum. As a result, a rapid decline in progesterone production occurs. After the dissolution of the corpus luteum, follicle development begins in the ovary, and the dam returns to normal estrus and ovulation. D-chloroprostol also can cause contractions of uterine smooth muscle, and has a contractile effect on the uterus.
Intramuscular injection of d-chloroprostol is absorbed quickly in pigs. The time to peak is 30-80 minutes, and the concentration to peak is 2µg/l. In addition, the distributed concentration within the uterus and ovary in the target area was high with short half-time period, which is only 3 hours. It is excreted mainly through urine and feces, and eliminated quickly.
