Excipients                               q. s.



  • Acts as an Antibiotic Growth Promoter
  • Have broad-spectrum action on both Gram- positive and Gram-negative bacteria
  • Improves growth and FCR in the broiler birds
  • Improves egg production in layer birds
  • Improves egg production and hatchability in the breeder birds
  • Helps to control bacterial diseases including Fowl cholera, CRD, mixed infection,
  • Stable in pelleting temperature


Mechanism of Action

Bactocura CTC enters gram negative bacteria by passive diffusion through the porin channels and gram positive bacteria and other organisms by energy-dependent active transport. It is concentrated intracellularly by vulnerable cells. After entering the cell, CTC HCL bind reversibly to the 30S subunit of the bacterial ribosome, blocking the binding of aminoacyl-tRNA to the aceeptor site on the mRNA-ribosome complex. This inhibits addition of amino acids to the growing peptide

The carrier involved in the active transport is absent in the avian cells and also tetracyclines do not bind to avian 60S or 30S ribosomes. These two factors are responsible for the selective toxicity of tetracyclines to the microbes.


Recommended Usage:

Mixing Directions : Thoroughly mix 335 g of Bactocura CTC in one tonne of poultry feed. The dosage should be adjusted to meet the severity of the disease challenge, which varies with management & environmental conditions


Feeding Directions : Feed continuously as the sole ration. It is recommended that a preblend of Bactocura CTC in 8-10 kg of feed to be made before incorporating it into the total amount of finished feed. Must be thoroughly mixed into feed before use
