Absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion studies were conducted in rats and dogs with rofecoxib (VIOXX, MK-0966), a potent and highly selective inhibitor of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2). In rats, the nonexponential decay during the terminal phase (4- to 10-h time interval) of rofecoxib plasma concentration versus time curves after i.v. or oral(More)
Rofecoxib is a potent and highly selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor used for the treatment of osteoarthritis and pain. Following administration of [4-(14)C]rofecoxib to intact rats, the plasma C(max) (at approximately 1 h) was followed by a secondary C(max) (at approximately 10 h), which was not observed in bile duct-cannulated rats.
