Mamyzin, a lecithin coated pro-drug of benzyl penicillin, is highly lipophilic and actively concentrates in the udder, where it is capable of entering epithelial cells to achieve intracellular bacterial kill1. It provides targeted, narrow spectrum treatment for gram positive mastitis in situations where injectable therapy for mastitis is required."
