Flavopiridol, the first potent cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor to enter clinical trials, was recently found to be cytotoxic to noncycling cells. The present studies were performed to examine the hypothesis that flavopiridol, like several other antineoplastic agents that kill noncycling cells, might also interact with DNA. Consistent with this possibility,(More)
We determined the disposition of a single 300-mg dose of [(14)C]celecoxib in eight healthy male subjects. The [(14)C]celecoxib was administered as a fine suspension reconstituted in 80 ml of an apple juice/Tween 80/ethanol mixture. Blood and saliva samples were collected at selected time intervals after dosing. All urine and feces were collected on the 10(More)
The role that metabonomics has in the evaluation of xenobiotic toxicity studies is presented here together with a brief summary of published studies. To provide a comprehensive assessment of this approach, the Consortium for Metabonomic Toxicology (COMET) has been formed between six pharmaceutical companies and Imperial College of Science, Technology and(More)
A pharmacokinetics and metabolism study was conducted in eight healthy human volunteers. After oral administration of [14C]eplerenone (EP) at a dose of 100 mg per person as an aqueous solution, blood, saliva, breath, urine, and fecal samples were collected at various time points. All matrices were analyzed for total radioactivity and/or for EP and its(More)
Valdecoxib is a potent and specific inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2, which is used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and the dysmenorrhea pain. Eight male human subjects each received a single 50-mg oral dose of [(14)C]valdecoxib. Urine, feces, and blood samples were collected after administration of the radioactive dose. Most of the(More)
Analysis of the reaction between 2'-deoxyadenosine and 4-oxo-2-nonenal by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry revealed the presence of three major products (adducts A(1), A(2), and B). Adducts A(1) and A(2) were isomeric; they interconverted at room temperature, and they each readily dehydrated to form adduct B. The mass spectral characteristics of(More)

The metabolic fates of potassium canrenoate (PC) and spironolactone (SP) were compared for the rat in vivo and in vitro. Approximately 18% of an in vivo dose of SP was metabolized to canrenone (CAN) and related compounds in the rat. In vitro, 20–30% of SP was dethioacetylated to CAN and its metabolites by rat liver 9000 g supernatant (S9). Thus, the major(More)
The pharmacokinetics and metabolism of valdecoxib, a potent cyclooxygenase-2 selective inhibitor, were investigated in mice. Valdecoxib was extensively metabolized after a single 5 mg/kg oral administration of [(14)C]valdecoxib and elimination of unchanged drug was minor (less than 1%) in male and female mice. The total mean percentage of administered(More)
