Methods of Manufacturing

Condensation of 2,4-dichloro-5-fluorobenzoylchloride with diethyl malonate by means of magnesium ethoxide in ether gives diethyl 2,4-dichloro-5-fluorobenzoylmalonate, which is partially hydrolyzed and decarboxylated with p-toluenesulfonic acid-water, yielding ethyl 2,4-dichloro-5-fluorobenzoylacetate. Condensation of this with triethylorthoformate in refluxing acetic anhydride affords ethyl 2-(2,4-dichloro-5-fluorobenzoyl)-3-ethoxyacrylate, which is treated with cyclopropylamine in ethanol to give ethyl 2-(2,4-dichloro-5-fluorobenzoyl)-3-cycloporpylaminoacrylate. Cyclization with NaH in refluxing dioxane then yields 7-chloro-1-cyclopropyl-6-fluoro-1,4-dihydro-4-oxoquinoline-3-carboxylic acid, which is finally condensed with piperazine in hot DMSO to yield ciprofloxacin.

Oral Dose: 500 mg, Peak Levels: 2.5 ug/ml, Absorption: 75-85%, Protein Binding: 20-40%, Urinary recovery: 30% /From table/
In a study investigating the pharmacokinetics of ciprofloxacin, 20 pregnant women, between 19-25 wk gestation (mean 21.6 wk), were scheduled for pregnancy termination because the fetuses were affected with beta-thalassemia major. Two doses of ciprofloxacin, 200 mg IV every 12 hr, were given prior to abortion. Serum & amniotic fluid concns were drawn concomitantly at 4, 8, & 12 hr after dosing. Mean maternal serum concns at these times were 0.28, 0.09 & 0.01 ug/ml, respectively, compared to mean amniotic fluid levels of 0.12, 0.13, &0.10 ug/ml, respectively. The amniotic fluid: maternal serum ratios were 0.43, 1.44, & 10.0 respectively.
Recent pharmacokinetic data, interaction profiles, & specific tolerance problems associated with the fluoroquinolones are reviewed. Oral absorption was highest for levofloxacin (99-100%), & 500 mg oral levofloxacin achieved a much higher initial concn than either sparfloxacin (400 mg) or ciprofloxacin (500 mg, b.i.d.), with a slow drop in concn over 24 hr. The C(max) achieved after an oral 250-mg dose ranged from a low of 1.2 microg/ml/70 kg for ciprofloxacin, to 1.71 for gatifloxacin & 2.17 for moxifloxacin, to a high of 2.48 for levofloxacin (p
This study reports on the biodistribution & dosimetry of technetium-99m ciprofloxacin, a radio-ligand developed for the visualisation of bacterial infection. Whole body scans were performed up to 24 hr after iv injection of 370 MBq 99mTc-ciprofloxacin in 3 male & 3 female volunteers. Blood samples were taken at various times up to 24 hr after injection. Urine was also collected up to 24 hr after injection, allowing calculation of renal clearance & interpretation of whole body clearance. Time-activity curves were generated for the thyroid, heart, liver & whole body by fitting the organ-specific geometric mean counts, obtained from regions of interest. The ... formulation was applied to calculate the absorbed radiation doses for various organs. The images showed rapid, predominantly urinary excretion of 99mTc ciprofloxacin, with low to absent brain, lung & bone marrow uptake & low liver uptake & excretion. Accordingly, imaging conditions are excellent for both the thoracic & the abdominal region, even at early time points (60 min) post injection. In none of the volunteers was the gallbladder visualised. Approx 60% of the injected activity was recovered in urine by 24 hr post injection. The highest absorbed doses were received by the urinary bladder wall, the thyroid, the upper large intestine, the lower large intestine & the uterus. The estimated mean effective dose for the adult subject, taking into account the weight factors of the ICRP60 publication, was 0.0083 mSv/MBq. The amount of 99mTc ciprofloxacin required for adequate planar & tomographic imaging results in an acceptable effective dose to the patient.

In an open, randomized, 6-period crossover study, the pharmacokinetics of ciprofloxacin, gatifloxacin, grepafloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, & trovafloxacin were compared after a single oral dose in 12 healthy volunteers (6 men & 6 women). The volunteers received 250 mg of ciprofloxacin, 400 mg of gatifloxacin, 600 mg of grepafloxacin, 500 mg of levofloxacin, 400 mg of moxifloxacin, & 200 mg of trovafloxacin. The concns of the 6 fluoroquinolones in serum & urine were measured by a validated high-performance liquid chromatography method. Blood & urine samples were collected before & at different time points up to 48 hr after medication. Levofloxacin had the highest peak concn (C(max), in ug/ml) (6.21+/-1.34), followed by moxifloxacin (4.34+/-1.61) & gatifloxacin (3.42+/-0.74). Elimination half-lives ranged from 12.12+/-3.93 hr (grepafloxacin) to 5.37+/-0.82 hr (ciprofloxacin). The total areas under the curve (AUC(tot), in ug-hr/ml) for levofloxacin (44.8+/-4.4), moxifloxacin (39.3+/-5.35), & gatifloxacin (30+/-3.8) were significantly higher than that for ciprofloxacin (5.75+/-1.25). Calculated from a normalized dose of 200 mg, the highest C(max)s (in ug/ml) were observed for levofloxacin (2.48 +/-0.53), followed by moxifloxacin (2.17+/-0.81) & trovafloxacin (2.09+/-0.58). The highest AUC(tot) (in ug-hr/ml) for a 200-mg dose were observed for moxifloxacin (19.7+/-2.67) & trovafloxacin (19.5+/-3.1); the lowest was observed for ciprofloxacin (4.6+/-1.0). No serious adverse event was observed during the study period. The 5 recently developed fluoroquinolones (gatifloxacin, grepafloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, & trovafloxacin) showed greater bioavailability, longer half-lives, & higher C(max)s than ciprofloxacin.

Disposition kinetics of danofloxacin & ciprofloxacin were studied in broiler chickens following iv, intramuscular & oral admin in a single dose of 5 & 10 mg/kg-1 bw respectively. In addition, tissue distribution & residual pattern of both drugs were determined. The max serum concn (Cmax) after intramuscular & oral admin were 1.03 & 0.55 mu/ml for danofloxacin & 2.92 & 1.24 mu/ml for ciprofloxacin attained at 0.8 & 2.43 & 0.55 & 1.27 hr for danofloxacin & ciprofloxacin respectively. The volume of distribution & systemic bioavailability were higher for danofloxacin (Vdss 2.21 L/kg & F% 96.56 & 81.4%) as compared with ciprofloxacin (Vdss 1.41 L/kg & F% 75.5 & 29.4%). Data relating to iv injection for both drugs were analyzed using a two compartment open model curve fit. Danofloxacin & ciprofloxacin were not detected in the serum of broilers at the 5th & 3rd day respectively following the drugs withdrawal while were detected in liver, kidneys, spleen & lungs. Danofloxacin completely disappeared from all tissues at the 13th day after stopping of the drug medication but ciprofloxacin disappeared after 5 days only.

Pharmacokinetics of enrofloxacin & its active metabolite ciprofloxacin were investigated in normal, febrile & probenecid-treated adult goats after single iv admin of enrofloxacin (5 mg/kg). Pharmacokinetic evaluation of the plasma concn-time data of enrofloxacin & ciprofloxacin was performed using two- & one-compartment open models, respectively. Plasma enrofloxacin concns were significantly higher in febrile (0.75-7 hr) & probenecid-treated (5-7 hr) goats than in normal goats. The sum of enrofloxacin & ciprofloxacin concns in plasma >or=0.1 microg /mL was maintained up to 7 & 8 hr in normal & febrile or probenecid-treated goats, respectively. The t1/2beta, AUC, MRT & ClB of enrofloxacin in normal animals were determined to be 1.14 h, 6.71 microg .hr/mL, 1.5 hr & 807 mL/hr/kg, respectively. The fraction of enrofloxacin metabolized to ciprofloxacin was 28.8%. The Cmax., t1/2beta, AUC & MRT of ciprofloxacin in normal goats were 0.45 microg /mL, 1.79 hr, 1.84 microg .hr/mL & 3.34 hr, respectively. As compared with normal goats, the values of t1/2beta (1.83 hr), AUC (11.68 microg ? hr/mL) & MRT (2.13 hr) of enrofloxacin were significantly higher, whereas its ClB (430 mL/hr/kg) & metabolite conversion to ciprofloxacin (8.5%) were lower in febrile goats. The Cmax. (0.18 microg /mL) & AUC (0.99 microg .hr/mL) of ciprofloxacin were significantly decreased, whereas its t1/2beta (2.75 hr) & MRT (4.58 hr) were prolonged in febrile than in normal goats. Concomitant admin of probenecid (40 mg/kg, i.v.) with enrofloxacin did not significantly alter any of the pharmacokinetic variables of either enrofloxacin or ciprofloxacin in goats.

... To study the aqueous & vitreous penetration of ciprofloxacin after prolonged acute topical admin & to investigate the effects of inflammation on drug penetration. ... A standardized model of intraocular infection after penetrating injury was made in the right eyes of 8 rabbits. The intact left eyes were maintained as the control. Two drops of ciprofloxacin 0.3% eyedrops were instilled topically every 1 hr for 7 hr to all eyes of the rabbits. Aqueous & vitreous samples (100 microl) were obtained half an hr after the last drop. Instillation was continued for 7 hr more & samples were obtained as before. Drug concns were measured using HPLC. ... The mean aqueous humor levels of ciprofloxacin were: in control eyes 1.31 +/- 0.78 microg/ml after 7 hr & 1.85 +/- 1.69 microg/ml after 14 hr of instillation: in inflamed eyes 2.18 +/- 1.02 microg/ml after 7 hr & 2.91 +/- 2.12 microg/ml after 14 hr. The mean vitreous humor levels were: in control eyes 0.65 +/- 0.44 microg/ml after 7 hr & 0.72 +/- 0.8 microg/ml after 14 hr of instillation; in inflamed eyes 0.67 +/- 0.77 microg/ml after 7 hr & 1.01 +/- 0.43 microg/ml after 14 hr. However, the differences among the groups were not significant (P>0.05). ... Ciprofloxacin penetration into aqueous humor was higher in 14-hr topical application than that for 7 hr. Inflammation increased the penetration of topical ciprofloxacin into aqueous while administered for 7 hr & into both aqueous & vitreous humor while administered for 14 hr.

Changes in oral bioavailability & in vitro antimicrobial activity have been the focus of many previous interaction studies for metal cations & quinolones. This study is the first to examine the possibility of an interaction in the systemic circulation using ciprofloxacin & ferrous sulfate as representative interactants in a rat model, & to determine the changes, if any, in the pharmacokinetics & pharmacodynamics of the antibiotic. To minimize direct physical interaction in the GI tract, the current study design required the male Sprague Dawley rats (220-240g) to be dosed with 100 mg/kg of oral ferrous sulfate & 5 mg/kg of iv ciprofloxacin. Control animals received only iv ciprofloxacin. Blood & urine samples were collected over time for quantitation of ciprofloxacin independently by both HPLC (H) & microbiological (M) assays. Results showed that the disposition of ciprofloxacin in control animals was biexponential with a mean (+/-SD) terminal elimination half-life (t(1/2,lambda z)) of 0.93+/-0.30 hr. A large apparent volume of distribution (V(d,lambda z): 6.96+/-1.56 L/kg) was observed. In addition, concn vs. time profiles generated by both assays were similar. When the antibiotic was dosed with oral iron, parameter estimates generated by HPLC appeared to show a wider distribution & a longer elimination of ciprofloxacin; mean V(d,lambda z) & t(1/2,lambda z) estimates increased by 2- & 4-fold, respectively. Relative to controls, antibiotic exposure (AUC(0-infinity) was also significantly higher (pPubMed Abstract

Environmental Fate and Exposure Potential

【Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary】
TERRESTRIAL FATE: Based on a classification scheme(1), an experimentally-derived Koc of 61,000(2) indicates that ciprofloxacin is expected to be immobile in soil(SRC). Volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process based on an estimated Henry's Law constant of 5.1X10-19 atm-cu m/mole(SRC), developed using a fragment constant estimation method(3). Results of a single OECD closed bottle biodegradation study(9), 0% degradation over a 40-day incubation period, indicate ciprofloxacin is not readily biodegradable.
AQUATIC FATE: Based on a classification scheme(1), an experimentally-derived Koc of 61,000(2) indicates that ciprofloxacin is expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment(SRC). Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected(3) based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 5.1X10-19 atm-cu m/mole(SRC), developed using a fragment constant estimation method(4). According to a classification scheme(5), an estimated BCF of 3.2(SRC), from a log Kow of 0.28(6), and a regression-derived equation(6) suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC). Aqueous ciprofloxacin solutions are susceptible to photolysis in sunlight(8); exposure of aqueous solutions (pH 5.0) to daylight for 15 days in Finland (March 1995) resulted in ciprofloxacin losses of 2-15.7%(8). Results of a single OECD closed bottle biodegradation study(9), 0% degradation over a 40-day incubation period, indicate ciprofloxacin is not readily biodegradable.
ATMOSPHERIC FATE: According to a model of gas/particle partitioning of semivolatile organic compounds in the atmosphere(1), ciprofloxacin, which has an estimated vapor pressure of 1.65X10-12 mm Hg at 25 deg C(SRC), determined from a fragment constant method(2)), will exist solely in the particulate phase in the ambient atmosphere. Particulate-phase ciprofloxacin may be removed from the air by wet and dry deposition(SRC).
