Fatroximin Intrauterine Foam contains rifaximin, a synthetic antibiotic belonging to the ansamycine family. The particular chemical and physical characteristics of rifaximin eliminate any possibility of it crossing organic barriers (endometrium, mammary epithelium, intestinal mucosa etc.).
It is therefore an excellent agent for use in topical administration therapy.
Fatroximin Intrauterine Foam is highly active against Gram-positive (Arcanobacterium pyogenes, Corynebacterium spp., staphylococci, streptococci) and Gram-negative microorganisms (E. coli, Pasteurella spp., Salmonella spp., etc.), aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms; its action is bactericidal, and it takes place at extremely low antibiotic concentrations. The specific pharmaceutical form of this preparation is such that the volume of antibiotic foam expands to 6 times the dispensed quantity, reaching even the less accessible areas of the uterine cavity, with persistent adhesion to the wall of the uterus.
Fatroximin Intrauterine Foam is presented with disposable gloves and is suitable for administration with every type of catheter thanks to the universal connector.
Fatroximin Intrauterine Foam is indicated for the treatment of bacterial infections of the genital organs of cows and mares.
It is particularly indicated for: acute and chronic endometritis, metritis, cervicitis, vulvovaginitis and pyometra.
Acute and chronic endometritis, metritis, cervicitis: 50-200 mg (equivalent to ½-2 cans) in single administration according to the size of the uterus to be treated. A check on the extent of dilation of the uterus should be effected by means of rectal palpation throughout treatment.

Pyometra: 50-200 mg (equivalent to ½-2 cans), after clearing the uterine lumen, in single administration according to the size of the uterus to be treated.
