The main reason of this difference in antibiotic resistance against sulfonamides may be the prolong use of this drug in laying hens against coccidial infections as laying hens are to be kept for long time whereas commercial broiler chicken are mostly kept for 40-45 days so use of sulfa drugs is limited.

The preferential solvation parameters, that is, the difference between the local and bulk mole fractions of the solvents in solutions of some structurally related sulfonamides in 1,4-dioxane + water binary mixtures are derived from their thermodynamic properties by means of the inverse Kirkwood-Buff integrals method.
