Metabolism of ethyl 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-5-(2-furyl)-oxazole-4-acetate, a new hypolipidemic agent, in the rat, rabbit, and dog. Glucuronidation of carboxyl group and cleavage of furan ring.

Abstract

Metabolism of ethyl 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-5-(2-furyl)-oxazole-4-acetate (TA-1801), a new hypolipidemic agent, was studied in the rat, rabbit, and dog. Animals were given a single oral dose of 50 mg/kg TA-1801 labeled with 14C. The first metabolic reaction for TA-1801 was hydrolysis of the ester linkage. The resulting metabolite M1 was found to undergo further… (More)
