Trivia questions : What is clenbuterol and ractopamine?

About clenbuterol

Clenbuterol is usually referred to as lean meat powder.
Clenbuterol is a colorless microcrystalline powder, Chinese alias: Clenbuterol for Clenbuterol; scientific name: Clenbuterol hydrochloride; an asthma drug with molecular formula C12H18Cl2N2O and molecular weight of 277.19, Boiling point is 404.9 ± 40.0 °C (760 mmHg), melting point is 161 °C, soluble in water, ethanol, slightly soluble in acetone, insoluble in ether.

Clenbuterol pharmacological action

Clenbuterol is a potent β2 receptor agonist. It is characterized by a small effective dose and long-lasting effect, and its bronchodilator effect is 100 times that of albuterol. Clenbuterol was taken orally 30 μg three times a day in asthma patients, compared with 5 mg orally terbutaline 3 times a day. They have similar effects on increasing FEV1 and maximum expiratory flow rate (FEF) and reducing airway resistance. It can be seen that the asthma effect of oral clenbuterol is 170 times stronger than that of terbutaline.

Clenbuterol dosage

1. 20 ~ 40μg each time, 3 times a day.
2. Sublingual administration: 60 to 120 μg each time, first sublingual administration. After the asthma is relieved, send the rest with warm water.
3. Aerosol inhalation: 10 to 20 μg each time, 3 to 4 times per day.
4. Rectal administration: 60 μg twice daily (or once before bedtime).

Clenbuterol side effects

Clenbuterol poisoning

In recent years, it has been found that adding clenbuterol to feed can promote animal growth and increase the lean meat ratio of livestock and poultry, so it is called lean meat essence. Poisoning can be caused by consuming the internal organs or meat of animals that contain residual lean meat.

Clenbuterol poisoning diagnosis

1. A history of excessive consumption of animal offal or meat with lean meat extract residues.
2. Clinically, β-receptor excitement is manifested by cardiovascular toxicity, which may include palpitations, tachycardia, hyperhidrosis, muscle tremor, muscle weakness; headache, nausea, and dyspnea; convulsions and hypertension may occur in severe cases Crisis.
3. Laboratory inspection
(1) Electrolyte disorders such as low potassium and low magnesium.
(2) Elevated blood sugar and myocardial enzymes.
(3) ECG: tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, ST-T changes may occur in severe cases.

Clenbuterol poisoning Treatment

To prevent the drug from continuing to be absorbed, those who are poisoned should induce vomiting as soon as possible and lavage the stomach if necessary.
Symptomatic treatment
(1) Maintain water, electrolyte and acid-base balance.
(2) Antihypertensive drugs can be used in patients with hypertension.
(3) Symptoms can be applied to relieve symptoms in mild cases.

Ractopamine

Ractopamine toxicity

Ractopamine is a synthetic Clembaam beta adrenal receptor agonist that can be used to treat congestive heart failure, muscular dystrophy, grow muscle, reduce fat accumulation, and benefit the fetus and newborn. Ractopamine is being used by some pig farms as a new type of lean meat extract. The scope of application and safety of this drug in the aquaculture industry varies from country to country. The production and sale of ractopamine has been banned in China since December 5, 2011.

Ractopamine pork

Commercial pig producers efficiently produce lean pork with good quality and high quality to compete with other animal products. The pricing system for lean carcasses has led to further options for lean growth rate, carcass lean rate and feed compensation. Health, nutrition, and equipment management strategies are implemented to maximize lean meat growth efficiency. However, the use of clenbuterol in the pig industry worldwide is illegal. Recently, after the FDA approved ractopamine for use in pigs, the US pig farmers regarded the difference between night and day. It should be recognized that whether ractopamine can be approved for production and use in China requires numerous tests and considerable time.

Ractopamine cattle

On July 12, 2014, the Taipei City Environmental Protection Agency destroyed 7,490 kg of lean meat-containing imported beef in the Muzha Incineration Plant. In February and March 2014, the Clenbuterol dispute broke out in Taiwan. This batch of animal drugs containing ractopamine (commonly known as lean meat) is imported from the United States beef from the warehouses of Kelon and Kaohsiung of Shusen Co., Ltd., which were returned for storage. The lean meat contains the highest amount of meat, reaching 2.9ppb. (Concentration unit).

Ractopamine side effects

Ractopamine toxicity

Ractopamine is far less toxic than other lean extracts with the same function. Regular doses of Clenbuterol can be metabolized and excreted in the body without causing harm to the body.

Ractopamine poisoning

However, excessive intake of ractopamine can cause different degrees of toxic reactions in the human body. The symptoms are similar to those of animal poisoning, and manifested as muscle tremor, limb paralysis, tachycardia, arrhythmia, abdominal pain, muscle pain, nausea and dizziness People can cause high blood pressure, heart disease and even death.

Ractopamine poisoning symptoms

Poisoning of meat or internal organs containing ractopamine residues may cause symptoms of poisoning such as dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, muscle tremors, palpitations, arrhythmia, increased blood pressure, promotion of cardiovascular disease, and reproductive system and many more.

Summary

In recent years (2011), poisoning incidents caused by consumption of foods contaminated with "lean extract" have repeatedly occurred, with extremely serious consequences, which has drawn great attention from countries around the world. Although China proposed to ban the use of "clenbuterol" drugs in 2000, the use of "clenbuterol" in animal husbandry production is still banned.
The Clenbuterol + Ractopamine Combo Test (Urine 3-5) kit provided by BALLYA can effectively detect whether food contains clenbuterol. This kit is not only simple to operate, but also has a short test time and high accuracy. Can ensure consumers food safety.
