LONGRANGE™ (eprinomectin) is a ready-to-use, sterile injectable preparation containing eprinomectin, a member of the macrocyclic lactone class of antiparasitics. Each mL of LONGRANGE contains 50 mg of eprinomectin in a co-solvent system of N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (30% v/v) and triacetin (qs), along with 50 mg of poly-lactide-co-glycolic-acid 75:25 (PLGA), a polymer that allows a slow release of eprinomectin from the formulation, thereby maintaining a prolonged duration of product effectiveness. Butylated hydroxytoluene (0.2 mg/mL) acts as an antioxidant in the formulation.
The chemical name of eprinomectin is 4″-deoxy-4″-epiacetylaminoavermectin B1 . It is a semi-synthetic member of the avermectin family of compounds consisting of a mixture of two homologous components, B1a and B1b , which differ by a single methylene group at C26 .
