SummaryPlasma concentration-time data for benzoic and hippuric acids and urinary excretion-time data for hippuric acid were analyzed simultaneously after oral doses of 40, 80 or 160 mg/kg sodium benzoate administered at least one week apart to 6 healthy subjects.The mean AUCs of benzoic acid after the doses of 80 and 160 mg/kg of sodium benzoate were 3.7- and 12.0-times greater, respectively, than after 40 mg/kg. However, the mean AUC of hippuric acid was roughly proportional to the benzoate… 

Effect of single oral dose of sodium benzoate on ureagenesis in healthy men and two patients with late onset citrullinaemia

Examination of aspects of ureagenesis after the single oral dosing of sodium benzoate in six healthy subjects who participated in the study previously reported and in two patients with citrullinaemia found no apparent inhibitory effects on the UNA.

The Effect of Oral Intake of Sodium Benzoate on the Activity of Liver Marker Enzymes and Electrolyte Level of the Wistar Albino Rats

In vivo effect of oral administration of sodium benzoate on serum liver marker enzyme activity and electrolyte levels of wistar albino rats were investigated to suggest possible changes in blood chemistry due to the preservative.

Influence of coffee intake on urinary hippuric acid concentration.

The findings suggest that toluene exposure in coffee-consuming workers may be overestimated, and components of coffee, such as chlorogenic, caffeic, and quinic acids, are metabolized to HA.

Adverse Effects of Some Food Additives in Adult Male Albino Rats

It is concluded that tartrazine, monosodium glutamate, sunset yellow, and sodium benzoate adversely affect and alter different biochemical parameters, especially those related to vital organs e.g. liver and kidney and that sunset yellow has the least adverse effects in comparison with the other food additives.



Drug biotransformation interactions in man. II. A pharmacokinetic study of the simultaneous conjugation of benzoic and salicylic acids with glycine.

Benzoic acid has a pronounced inhibitory effect on the formation of salicyluric acid from salicylic acid, and the results indicate that in man the availability of glycine is rate-limiting in theformation of hippuric Acid, but not inThe formation of SalicylURic acid.

Limited capacity for salicyl phenolic glucuronide formation and its effect on the kinetics of salicylate elimination in man

Evidence is presented which shows that man has a limited capacity to form salicyl phenolic glucuronide from salicylic acid and that this process is describable by Michaelis‐Menten kinetics in the

Clinical Pharmacokinetics of the Salicylates

Pharmacokinetic parameters in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, chronic renal failure or liver disease are essentially the same, and no significant differences exist between the pharmacokinetics of the salicylates in the elderly or in children when compared with young adults.

Some old equations are reviewed and some new equations have been derived which indicate certain properties of the Michaelis-Menten equation and its integrated forms which indicate the hybrid nature of ko.

The potentiation of ammonia toxicity by sodium benzoate is prevented by L-carnitine.

Salicylate accumulation kinetics in man.

It is thus important to make upward adjustments of dosage cautiously, allowing sufficient time for body levels to reach the new steady state before the dosage is increased still further, according to the time required to attain the plateau.
