Disposition of 4,5-diphenyl-2-oxazolepropionic acid (oxaprozin) in beagle dogs and rhesus monkeys

Drug Metabolism and Disposition : the Biological Fate of Chemicals
F W JanssenH W Ruelius


Following intragastric doses of 14C-oxaprozin to beagle dogs and rhesus monkeys, oxaprozin was rapidly absorbed and was essentially the only drug-related substance in the plasma for at least 24 hr. Recovery of radioactivity in the excreta was 87% in both species, with the fecal route accounting for almost all of the excretion by the dog, and the urinary route predominating in the monkey. The drug was slowly eliminated by both species. The concentrations in tissues of monkeys were generally less than those in plasma, and their decline with time paralleled that in plasma. High concentrations of 14C were found in the bile and urine. Qualitative and quantitative metabolite patterns of both fluids were similar. About 90% of the 14C in both bile and urine was recovered as identified compounds in the free, ester conjugate, and ether conjugate fractions. The ester conjugate fraction, mainly consisting of oxaprozin glucuronide, was quantitatively the most important in both fluids. Two phenolic metabolites were characterized by mass spectrometry and co-chromatography. They were present in free form and as ester and ether glucuronides.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
