In vitro photoperoxidation as an indicator of the potential phototoxicity of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory 2-arylpropionic acids.


The photochemical behaviour of 2-arylpropionic acids involves the intermediacy of short-lived species such as drug-derived peroxides and/or free radicals. Although peroxides are expected to undergo very rapid breakdown, this study shows that they can be detected in the photomixtures by the peroxidase-catalysed oxidation of dichlorodihydrofluorescein to its… (More)
