BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Phospho‐sulindac (PS; OXT‐328) prevents colon cancer in mice, especially when combined with difluoromethylornithine (DFMO). Here, we explored its metabolism and pharmacokinetics. 
Regioselective oxidation of phospho‐NSAIDs by human cytochrome P450 and flavin monooxygenase isoforms: implications for their pharmacokinetic properties and safety
Phospho‐ibuprofen and phospho‐sulindac metabolism by major human cytochrome P450s (CYPs) and flavin monooxygenases (FMOs) is investigated.
The in vitro metabolism of phospho-sulindac amide, a novel potential anticancer agent.
Aerosol Administration of Phospho-Sulindac Inhibits Lung Tumorigenesis
It is found that administration by inhalation delivered high levels of phospho-sulindac to the lungs and minimized its hydrolysis to less active metabolites and was highly effective in inhibiting lung tumorigenesis and significantly improved the survival of mice bearing orthotopic A549 xenografts.
Phospho-Sulindac (OXT-328) Inhibits the Growth of Human Lung Cancer Xenografts in Mice: Enhanced Efficacy and Mitochondria Targeting by its Formulation in Solid Lipid Nanoparticles
The results show that SLN-PS is efficacious in suppressing the growth of lung cancer and merits further evaluation, suggesting that it specifically induced oxidative stress in tumors.
Development of oseltamivir phosphonate congeners as anti-influenza agents.
Oseltamivir phosphonic acid, its mono methyl ester, guanidino-tamiphosphor, and its monoethyl ester are potent inhibitors of influenza neuraminidases that inhibit the replication of influenza viruses at low nanomolar to picomolar levels, and significantly protect mice from infection with lethal doses of influenza virus when orally administered with 1 mg/kg or higher doses.
Carboxylesterases 1 and 2 Hydrolyze Phospho-Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs: Relevance to Their Pharmacological Activity
Results show that carboxylesterase mediates that metabolic inactivation of phospho-NSAIDs, and the inhibition of carboxyleterases improves the efficacy of phosphate- NSAIDs in vitro and in vivo.
Curcumin enhances the lung cancer chemopreventive efficacy of phospho-sulindac by improving its pharmacokinetics
Results show that curcumin substantially improves the pharmacokinetics of PS leading to synergistic inhibition of the growth of human lung cancer xenografts, representing a promising drug combination.
Recent Developments in Chimeric NSAIDs as Safer Anti‐Inflammatory Agents
This review deals with approaches and strategies that have been employed in the last two decades and are being used currently in the design and development of safer NSAIDs.
NSAIDs: Old Acquaintance in the Pipeline for Cancer Treatment and Prevention─Structural Modulation, Mechanisms of Action, and Bright Future.
The most recent outcomes for the treatment and prevention of different types of cancers for several NSAIDs alone or in combination with current chemotherapeutic drugs are reported and an extensive review of the most promising structural modifications is reported.


Phospho-Sulindac (OXT-328) Combined with Difluoromethylornithine Prevents Colon Cancer in Mice
P-S/DFMO is an efficacious drug combination for colon cancer prevention and also show the safety of P-S, which may overcome the limiting side effects of conventional sulindac.
Phospho-sulindac (OXT-328), a novel sulindac derivative, is safe and effective in colon cancer prevention in mice.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective cancer chemopreventive agents. However, chronic administration of NSAIDs is associated with significant side effects,
Mitochondrial uncoupling by the sulindac metabolite, sulindac sulfide.
Sulindac sulfide caused mitochondrial uncoupling, released preaccumulated Ca2+ from the organelle, and decreased Hep-G2 cell viability in apparent association with cell ATP depletion resulting from mitochondrial uncOUpling-associated membrane potential dissipation.
The novel phospho‐non‐steroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs, OXT‐328, MDC‐22 and MDC‐917, inhibit adjuvant‐induced arthritis in rats
Three novel modified NSAIDs are evaluated for the anti‐inflammatory efficacy and safety in rheumatoid arthritis: phospho‐aspirin,ospho‐ibuprofen and phospho-sulindac.
The Role of Cyclooxygenase Inhibition in the Antineoplastic Effects of Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs (Nsaids)
According to WHO statistics, in 1996 875,000 new cases of colorectal cancer were diagnosed and 495,000 deaths were attributed to it worldwide ([1][1]). It is the third most common cause of cancer
Sulindac sulfide suppresses 5-lipoxygenase at clinically relevant concentrations
Mechanistic analysis demonstrated that SSi directly suppresses 5-LO with an IC50 of 20 μM, which may provide a novel molecular basis to explain the COX-independent pharmacological effects of sulindac under therapy.

The results provide a pharmacological basis to explain, at least in part, the anticancer efficacy and safety of this promising compound and indicate that PI merits further evaluation as an anticancer agent.
In Vitro Metabolism of Nitric Oxide-Donating Aspirin: The Effect of Positional Isomerism
The three positional isomers of NO-ASA differ in their metabolism and these differences correlate with their differential effects on cancer cell growth, underscoring the importance of positional isomerism in modulating drug effects.
Effect of Carboxylesterase Inhibition on the Anti-Tumour Effects of Irinotecan
A direct correlation was found between the dose of administered BNPP and the growth rate of the tumour, demonstrating that the anti-tumour effects of CPT-11 were related to the CE concentration.
