Diclofenac has recently been identified as a cause of the widespread vulture decline on the Indian subcontinent. Although the clinical signs and pathology have been described, the pathophysiology of toxicity remains unexplained. In the following study we attempt to validate the domestic fowl as a model, to allow for the further characterisation of diclofenac's mechanism of toxicity. In a lethal dose study, diclofenac was shown to have an approximate intramuscular LD(50) of 9.8mg/kg in 18-week… Expand
Veterinary diclofenac threatens Africa's endangered vulture species.
TLDR
It would appear that the sensitivity of the Cape Griffon is similar to that of their Asian counterparts and the African White-backed Vulture (Gyps africanus), which is almost certainly toxic to all Gyps vulture species and strong efforts must be taken to ensure that veterinary diclofenac products are not licensed or introduced to the African continent. Expand
Apparent tolerance of turkey vultures (Cathartes aura) to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac.
TLDR
Differential sensitivity among avian species is a hallmark of cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors, and despite the tolerance of turkey vultures to diclofenac, additional studies in related scavenging species seem warranted. Expand
Protective Effects of Allopurinol on Diclofenac-Induced Toxicity in Domestic Chicken
Diclofenac, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug is becoming a threat to ecological balance by its swipe at vultures. The decline in population of vultures has been attributed to high mortality dueExpand
Could the environmental toxicity of diclofenac in vultures been predictable if preclinical testing methodology were applied?
TLDR
Japanese quails and Muscovy ducks are not suitable as surrogates for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug toxicity testing and that the toxicity of diclofenac in vultures is idiosyncratic most likely as a result of species specific metabolism. Expand
THE PIED CROW (CORVUS ALBUS) IS INSENSITIVE TO DICLOFENAC AT CONCENTRATIONS PRESENT IN CARRION
TLDR
It is concluded that the crow is not susceptible to diclofenac and, more important, that toxicity in the Gyps species is probably related to zero-order metabolism. Expand
Diclofenac toxicity in Gyps vulture is associated with decreased uric acid excretion and not renal portal vasoconstriction.

TLDR
It is concluded that vulture susceptibility to diclofenac results from a combination of an increased ROS, interference with UA transport and the duration of exposure, which could be temporarily ameliorated by pre-incubation with uric acid (UA). Expand
Toxicity of Flunixin Meglumine in Broiler Chickens
This study was designed to evaluate the toxicity of flunixin meglumine, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug which might serve as an alternate of diclofenac that has been shown to cause toxicity inExpand
The use of liver slices from the Cape vulture (Gyps coprotheres) to better understand the role of liver toxicity of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in vultures.
TLDR
The poor distinction between the ex vivo hepatic percent clearance of meloxicam and diclofenac indicates that liver slices is not an ideal model to investigate NSAIDs toxicity in Cape vulture. Expand
EVALUATION OF DICLOFENAC SODIUM TOXICITY AT DIFFERENT CONCENTRATIONS IN RELATION TO TIME USING BROILER CHICKEN MODEL
TLDR
It was concluded that diclofenac sodium is not a safe drug at higher doses by both routes in broiler chicken model. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that meloxicam is of low toxicity toGyps vultures and that its use in place of diclofenac would reduce vulture mortality substantially in the Indian subcontinent. Expand
PATHOLOGY AND PROPOSED PATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF DICLOFENAC POISONING IN FREE-LIVING AND EXPERIMENTALLY EXPOSED ORIENTAL WHITE-BACKED VULTURES (GYPS BENGALENSIS)
TLDR
It is proposed that the mechanism by which diclofenac induces renal failure in the OWBV is through the inhibition of the modulating effect of prostaglandin on angiotensin II-mediated adrenergic stimulation. Expand
Toxicity of diclofenac to Gyps vultures
TLDR
It is suggested that diclofenac is likely to be toxic to all eight Gyps species, and that G. africanus, which is phylogenetically close to G. bengalensis, would be a suitable surrogate for the safety testing of alternative drugs to diclotenac. Expand
Diclofenac residues as the cause of vulture population decline in Pakistan
TLDR
Results are provided that directly correlate residues of the anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac with renal failure and renal failure in the Oriental white-backed vulture (OWBV) and it is proposed that residues of veterinary diclotenac are responsible for the OWBV decline. Expand
Comparative toxicity studies in birds using nimesulide and diclofenac sodium.
TLDR
No significant differences in the weight gain, haematology, total protein contents, and serum creatinine, cholesterol, alkaline phosphatase, and aspartate aminotransferase levels in the nimesulide and diclofenac groups (survived birds) were observed when compared with the control group of birds.

The oral bioavailability of ibuprofen enantiomers in broiler chickens.
TLDR
Significantly higher area under the curve (AUC) values for S(+)-ib uprofen compared with R(-)-ibuprofen were collected after crop and proventriculus administration, and several factors could be responsible for the significant differences in AUC values. Expand

TLDR
The pharmacokinetic profile of meloxicam in rats most closely resembles that in humans; therefore, reliable clinical predictions can be made from studies in this rodent species. Expand
