Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to penethamate hydriodide (CAS RN 808-71-9). Penethamate is a prodrug which releases benzylpenicillin (Penicillin G). Benzylpenicillin is a known human skin and respiratory sensitizer. Additional precautions should be taken to protect from skin contact. Penethamate is the diethylaminoethyl ester of benzylpenicillin (penicillin G). It has the special ability to diffuse through cell membranes securing a rapid and even distribution throughout the tissue of the target organ. It is particularly suitable for the treatment of infections of the mammary, respiratory and uterine tissue. In formulations intended for veterinary use, the compound is incorporated as the hydroiodide. Penethamate hydriodide is used in intramammary products for treatment of mastitis in lactating cattle and as an injectable solution for the treatment of bacterial infections in swine, cattle, pigs and horses.

Affygility Solutions has an occupational exposure limit (OEL) and control band assignment for this active pharmaceutical ingredient (API). This monograph also contains the acceptable daily exposure (ADE) value.
