522.1620 Orgotein for injection.

Specifications: Orgotein for injection is packaged in a vial containing 5 milligrams of orgotein and 10 milligrams of sucrose as lyophilized sterile non-pyogenic powder with directions for dissolving the contents of the vial in 2 milliliters of diluent which is sodium chloride injection, U.S.P.

Conditions of use:


Amount: It is administered by deep intramuscular injection at a dosage level of 5 milligrams every other day for 2 weeks and twice weekly for 2 to 3 more weeks. Severe cases, both acute and chronic, may benefit more from daily therapy initially. Dosage may be continued beyond 5 weeks if satisfactory improvement has not been achieved.

Indications: It is used in the treatment of soft tissue inflammation associated with the musculoskeletal system.

Limitations: Not for use in horses intended for food.


Amount: It is administered by subcutaneous injection at a dosage level of 5 milligrams every day for 6 days, and thereafter, every other day for 8 days. In less severe conditions shorter courses of therapy may be indicated.

Indications; It is used for the relief of inflammation associated with ankylosing spondylitis, spondylosis, and disc disease. When severe nerve damage is present, response will occur much more slowly, if at all.

Limitations: Federal law restricts this drug to use by or on the order of a licensed veterinarian.
