We established a new method to analyze moxidectin using high performance liquid chromatography(HPLC) with fluorescence derivatization in order to obtain its residual profiles in biological samples. Recovery of moxidectin in tissue was 62% at 10 ppb. Average detection reproducibility in terms of coefficience variation was 4.47% at 0.32 to 10 ppb. Residual of moxidectin was studied in 44 Yorkshire-Landrace mixed bred male pigs administered subcutaneously 0, 200, or 800 mg/kg body weight (BW) Residual profiles of moxdectin in blood, muscle, liver, kidney and fat of pigs were described. The concentration of the moxidectin in liver after administration of moxidectin was the highest among the tissues examined. Moxidectin in liver after administration of moxidectin as 200 mg/kg BW was declined from 10.0 ? 3.7 ng/g at 10 day post administration to 0.5 ? 0.3 ng/g level at 40 day post administration. Residual levels of moxidectin in all samples were estimated to fall below the limit of quantitation (0.32 ng/ml) after 50 day after treatment of 200 mg/kg. Moxidectin showed no abnormal observations in all the clinical findings at any concentrations under these experimental conditions. In conclusion, this analysis method by HPLC after fluorescence derivatization was very effective for the detection of moxidectin in biological samples. We suggest that 50-day is safe enough for the withdrawal time of moxidectin in pigs, following the recommendation dose by the manufacturer.
