The aim of this investigation was to assess the pharmacokinetics of naproxen in 10 human subjects after an oral dose of 500 mg using a direct HPLC analysis of the acyl glucuronide conjugates of naproxen and its metabolite O-desmethylnaproxen. The mean t1/2 of naproxen in 9 subjects was 24.7 +/- 6.4 h (range 16 to 36 h). The t1/2 of 7.4 as found in subject(More)
The sulphonamides sulphapyridine and sulphadiazine show novel hydroxy metabolites in the turtle Pseudemys scripta elegans. In the excreta of the turtles the monohydroxy metabolites 4-hydroxy- and 5-hydroxysulphapyridine and the dihydroxy metabolite 4,5-dihydroxysulphapyridine were detected. Of sulphadiazine only dihydroxy metabolites 4,5- and(More)
The turtle Pseudemys scripta elegans is able to hydroxylate and acetylate Sulphamethoxazole in a way that is comparable to man, i.e. the rate and yield of hydroxylation equals that of the acetylation. The hydroxy metabolites 5-hydroxy- and N4-acetyl-5-hydroxysulphamethoxazole are not glucuronidated. N4-acetylsulphamethoxazole is neither deacetylated nor(More)
The turtle Pseudemys scripta elegans hydroxylates nalidixic acid into 7-hydroxynalidixic acid; this latter metabolite is oxidised into 7-carboxynalidixic acid. The elimination half-life of nalidixic acid in the turtle is 30 h. No glucuronides of nalidixic- and 7-hydroxynalidixic acid are formed, as they are in man.
