Chlortetracycline is a tetracycline antibiotic, the first tetracycline to be identified. It was discovered in 1945 by Benjamin Minge Duggar working at Lederle Laboratories under the supervision of Yellapragada Subbarow. Serum  chlortetracycline (CTC) concentration in dromedary camels increases within 1 hour after intrauterine administration and remains elevated for at least 72 hours in control, oxytocin-, and PGF2α-treated animals. Pulicharla R et al investigated the stability constants and toxicity of chlortetracycline (CTC) and metal (Ca, Mg, Cu and Cr) complexes. Their study provides evidence that CTC and its metal complexes are toxic to bacteria when they are biologically available. As for WWS, CTC was adsorbed to solid part and was not biologically available to show measurable toxic effects.
