Physiological disposition and metabolism of 5-(2',4'-difluorophenyl)salicyclic acid, a new salicylate

Drug Metabolism and Disposition : the Biological Fate of Chemicals
D J ToccoC V Perrier


5-(2'4'-Difluorophenyl) [carboxy-14C]salicyclic acid (MK-647) was quickly and completely absorbed in rats, dogs, and man. Peak levels of plasma radioactivity occurred in 1-2 hr after oral administration. The dose was 10 mg/kg in rats and dogs, and 50 or 500 mg in man. Most of the drug in plasma was intact MK-647 which was extensively bound to plasma protein. In man the peak concentration following the 500-mg dose was approximately 10 times that after the lower dose, which suggests that absorption rates of both doses were similar. Elimination of drug from plasma was dose-dependent. The area under the curve for MK-647-14C in plasma was 18 times higher following the 500-mg dose than the 50-mg dose. Dogs given 10 mg/kg orally or intravenously excreted 44% of the dose in the urine and 42% in the feces in 72 hr. Rats given the same dose level by either route of administration excreted 80% in the urine and 11% in the feces. In man approximately 95% of a 50- or 500-mg oral dose was excreted in the urine and 3% in the feces, in 96 hr. MK-647 and two metabolites were present in the urine of three species. The ether and ester glucuronides were identified in human urine. The latter metabolite was also identified in rat and dog urine. The g...Continue Reading

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.

Autism: Motor Learning

A common feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the impairment of motor control and learning, consistent with perturbation in cerebellar function. Find the latest research on ASD and motor learning here.

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.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

Protein Localization in Disease & Therapy

Localization of proteins is critical for ensuring the correct location for physiological functioning. If an error occurs, diseases such as cardiovascular, neurodegenerative disorders and cancers can present. Therapies are being explored to target this mislocalization. Here is the latest research on protein localization in disease and therapy.

Genetic Screens in Bacteria

Genetic screens can provide important information on gene function as well as the molecular events that underlie a biological process or pathway. Here is the latest research on genetic screens in bacteria.

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.
