Abstract

Tests were conducted to determine the in vitro efficacy of the dithiocarbamate analogue, dimethyldithiocarbamate (DmDTC), against selected poultry pathogens. Organisms studied were two bacteria, Pasteurella multocida and Escherichia coli, and a mold, Aspergillus fumigatus. Zone of inhibition and the minimum inhibitory concentration were determined for each organism. DmDTC was effective in vitro against all organisms tested, with A. fumigatus showing greatest overall sensitivity. /// Usando diferentes patógenos aviares, se realizaron pruebas para determinar la eficacia in vitro del dimetilditiocarbamato, análogo del ditiocarbamato. Los organismos estudiados fueron dos bacterias, Pasteurella multocida y Escherichia coli; y un hongo, Aspergillus fumigatus. Para cada organismo se determinó la zona de inhibición y la concentración inhibitoria mínima. El dimetiltiocarbamato fue efectivo in vitro contra todos los organimos ensayados, obteniéndose la mayor sensibilidad contra el A. fumigatus.
