Abstract:Diclofenac is associated with a low, but significant, incidence of hepatotoxicity and bone marrow toxicity. It has been suggested that this could be due to a reactive acyl glucuronide. An alternative hypothesis is that an oxidative reactive metabolite could be responsible for such reactions and such metabolites formed by the enzymes present in neutrophils could be responsible for bone marrow toxicity. Others had reported the formation of 2,2'-dihydroxyazobenzene during the oxidation of diclofenac by myeloperox… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
