M. hyopneoumonia, M. hyorhinis, M. hyosynoviae), Spirochaetas spp.,
Chlamydia spp. and Rickettsia spp. The drug has a bacteriostatic effect.
Doxycycline inhibits bacterial protein synthesis, disrupts the binding
of aminoacyl-tRNA to the 30S ribosomal subunit.
After oral administration, doxycycline is well absorbed in the
gastrointestinal tract and distributed to all organs and tissues. The
maximum concentration is reached in 2-4 hours. The therapeutic
concentration persists 18-24 hours.
Doxycycline is mainly excreted in the bile.
