Lincomycin (LCM) is an antibiotic used to treat severe bacterial infections in livestock and companion animals. In this study, we aimed to investigate the oral bioavailability of LCM with PK data after IV and PO administration and to compare differences in drug residue patterns in eggs. To ensure food safety, an additional study on egg residue was conducted using 3 different commercial LCM drugs. For bioavailability study, laying hens were divided into oral and intravenous (n = 8/group) groups and received single dose (10 mg/kg) of LCM. The limits of quantification for LCM were 0.729 μg/mL and 0.009 mg/kg in plasma and eggs, respectively. The oral group exhibited a significantly lower average serum drug concentration than the IV group, with a bioavailability of 2.6%. Furthermore, the egg residue profiles confirmed reduced systemic drug exposure after oral administration. For the commercial LCM drug egg residue experiment, laying hens were divided...
