In vitro sulfoxidation of albendazole by ovine liver microsomes: assay and frequency of various xenobiotics.


The in vitro biological oxidation of albendazole to its pharmacologically active sulfoxide and its sulfone by ovine liver microsomes has been studied. Sulfoxidation (maximal rate = 0.412 nmole/min/mg of protein, Michaelis constant = 185 X 10(-6) M) was 107 times more potent than formation of albendazole sulfone. The sulfoxidation corresponds to a reduced… (More)
