The objective of the research was to detect the enhancement effect of sodium taurocholate on the absorption of cefquinome both in Caco-2 cells and rats. The absorption efficiency of cefquinome was determined by high performance liquid chromatography and calculated with apparent permeability coefficients (Papp) after Caco-2 cell monolayers treated odium taurocholate (2 mmol/L) and cefquinome. The results showed that the absorption of cefquinome in Caco-2 cell monolayers was significantly increased with the sodium taurocholate (2mmol/L). Similar results were also detected in the rats orally administrated with 1 mL PBS of cefquinome (20mg/mL) containing different concentration of sodium taurocholate (5 mmol/L, 10mmol/L and 20mmol/L) respectively. Compared with control group, sodium taurocholate at 10 and 20 mmol/L increased the absorption of cefquinome in rats from 0.26±0.04μg/mL to 0.57±0.03μg/mL, 0.78 ±0.07μg/mL respectively. These results indicated that sodium taurocholate could increase the intestinal permeability in a concentration-dependent mode, which will be useful for clinical treatment.
