Abstract: 2072 J. Agric. Food Chem. 1990, 38, 2072-2078 Absorption, Tissue Distribution, and Excretion of Tritium-Labeled Ivermectin in Cattle, Sheep, and Rat Shuet-Hing Lee Chiu,' Marilyn L. Green, Francis P. Baylis, Diana Eline, Avery Rosegay, Henry Meriwether, a n d Theodore A. Jacob Department of Animal and Exploratory Drug Metabolism, Merck Sharp and Dohme Research Laboratories, P.O. Box 2000, Rahway, New Jersey 07065 Tritium-labeled ivermectin was studied in cattle, sheep, and rat for absorption, tissue residue distribution, and excretion at doses of 0.3 mg/ kg of body weight. The drug was absorbed by various dosing routes. By intraruminal and subcutaneous dosing routes, highest tissue residues were present in fat and liver of cattle, with half-lives of 6-8 and 4-5 days, respectively. Shorter half-lives (1-2 days) were observed in sheep and rat. The tissue residue distribution pattern was essentially the same for all species studied and similar in male and female rats. With doses of tritium-labeled avermectin B1, ranging from 0.06 to 7.5 mg/kg of body weight, plasma and tissue residue concentrations increased proportionally with the dose. When ivermectin was administered by various routes (ip, sc, iv, oral, and intraruminal), blood residue levels converged to 20-50 ppb 4 h after dosing and then depleted a t a similar rate regardless of the dosing route. Ivermectin was excreted primarily in the feces, with only less than 25;) of the doses being eliminated in the urine in all three species studied. Ivermectin is the 22,23-dihydro derivative of avermectin B1, a macrocyclic lactone produced by a n actinomycetes, Streptomyces avermitilis (Chabala et al., 1980; Burg et al., 1979; Miller e t al., 1979; Egerton et al., 1979). It is active a t extremely low dosage against a wide variety of nematode and arthropod parasites. I t is widely used for the treatment and control of parasites in cattle, horses, sheep, swine, and dogs (Campbell et al., 1983). Ivermectin consists of two closely related homologues containing no less than 80!( 22,23-dihydroavermectin B1, (H2Bla)and no more than 20 22,23-dihydroavermectin Blb ( H & , ) as shown in Figure 1. In vivo metabolism and in vitro metabolism of ivermectin have been studied previously in cattle, sheep and rat (Chiu et al., 1986, 1988) and by hepatic microsomes from cattle and rat (Miwa et al., 1982). A similar in vitro study was also carried out with swine hepatic microsomes (Chiu et al., 1984, 1987). Pharmacokinetics of ivermectin using various formulations have also been reported in various species, e.g., swine, dog, sheep, and cattle (Lo et al., 1985; Wilkinson et al., 1985; Prichard et al., 1985; Fink and Porras, 1989). The biological half-lives (t1p) of the drug increase among these species in the same order, ranging from 0.5 day (swine) to 1.8 (dog), 2.7 (sheep), and 2.8 days (cattle). T h e studies herein described were carried out with the radiolabeled drug in target animals of drug use (cattle, sheep) as well as the laboratory animal (rat) mainly for tissue residue levels, distribution, a n d excretion of t h e radioactive dose. Absorption of the radioactive dose was also studied for comparison with tissue residue levels. '( MATERIALS AND METHODS Radiolabeled Chemicals.
