Sterile Injectable prostaglandin analogue for swine
For Veterinary Use Only
PLANATE (cloprostenol) is a synthetic prostaglandin analogue for use in swine. Each 2 mL dose of the colorless solution contains 184 µg of cloprostenol sodium B.P. (vet.) equivalent to 175 µg of cloprostenol.
PLANATE induces farrowing in sows and gilts. Parturition and piglet viability are normal when PLANATE is administered as early as 1 or 2 days before the expected farrowing date. Piglet mortality may be increased if PLANATE is administered earlier than the second day before expected farrowing. The prediction of the precise date of farrowing is subject to error, therefore, the operator should be prepared to render extra care to piglets, if necessary.
The average gestation length must be calculated on each farm from accurate service records so that sows may be induced to farrow at the required time. (In most situations gestation length varies between 111 and 119 days with an average around 115 days as shown below). Sows and gilts may then be given PLANATE as early in gestation as 2 days before this calculated expected farrowing date. The majority of animals can be expected to respond within the period 24 ± 5 hours following injection, except in those cases where spontaneous farrowing is imminent. Trials have shown that normally 95% will commence farrowing within 36 hours of treatment.
PLANATE should be administered by deep intramuscular injection.
2 mL (175 µg cloprostenol).
An increase in the number of nonviable piglets may result if PLANATE is used more than two days prior to the average gestation length calculated from farm records.
Mild side effects (consisting of exaggerated nesting behavior and restlessness) may be seen occasionally.
Treated animals must not be slaughtered for use in food for at least 7 days after the latest treatment with this drug.
PLANATE can be absorbed through the skin. Therefore, care should be taken when handling the product, especially by women of child bearing age and asthmatics. Accidental spillage on the skin should be washed off immediately with water.
Prostaglandins of the F2α type may cause bronchospasm in man although the possible incidence of this effect with PLANATE is not known.
Should respiratory embarrassment result from accidental inhalation or injection, the inhalation of a rapid-acting bronchodilator is indicated.
Protect from light. Store between 15° and 30°C.
