Halocur oral solution for treatment of calves

The Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) has before it an application from Intervet Australia Pty Limited for the registration of a new product, Halocur Oral Solution for Treatment of Calves (referred to as Halocur Oral Solution), which contains 0.5 g/L of halofuginone (present as halofuginone lactate). The product is an oral solution that is to be administered to calves aged 1-21 days, as an aid in control and prevention of diarrhoea caused by Cryptosporidium parvum.

The application involves consideration of the proposal to extend the use of halofuginone to cattle, along with the establishment of Australian Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for halofuginone in meat and offal of cattle.
