Disposition kinetics of lactoferrin in milk after intramammary administration

, : Disposition kinetics of lactoferrin in milk after intramammary administration. Journal of veterinary pharmacology and therapeutics 25(2): 129-133

Disposition kinetics of lactoferrin (Lf) purified from cheese whey was studied in the milk of Finnish Ayrshire cows after intramammary administration of 1 g of Lf into one udder quarter. Intramammary administration of 1 g of Lf increased Lf concentration in milk for several hours. Mean elimination half-life of Lf was 2.2 h and a mean maximum concentration of 6.3 g/L was reached between 1 and 4 h. After 8 h of administration. Lf concentrations in milk decreased to almost the same level as before the infusion. Forty-eight hours postinfusion, the mean Lf concentration was again higher than in the milk samples taken before the infusion of Lf, being on average 1.5 g/L. Lactoferrin caused some local tissue irritation in the udder quarter. Severity of the irritation reactions varied between cows. The udder quarters of primiparous cows reacted faster than those of multiparous cows, but irritation reactions decreased more rapidly in the older cows than in primiparous cows. The cows had no general signs such as fever or anorexia. The somatic cell count returned to baseline level 4 days after the administration.
