Fenoterol metabolism in man: sulphation versus glucuronidation.

1. Plasma levels of fenoterol (F) and its conjugate metabolites were determined in healthy female subjects and in pregnant women treated for preterm labour. Sulphate (S) and glucuronide (G) conjugates could be quantified. 2. In the healthy volunteers, AUC of both the metabolites was half that of parent compound (AUC-S/AUC-F: 0.42; 0.14-1.16) (AUC-G/AUC-F: 0… CONTINUE READING
