The metabolism of the oral anti-inflammatory agent suprofen (S), 2-4-(2-thienylcarbonyl)phenyl)propionic acid, has been studied in mice, rats, guinea pigs, dogs, monkeys, and human volunteers. The major metabolites of S in the serum, urine, and feces of these species were determined by GC/MS and HPLC techniques. The metabolic pathways of S in these species involved reduction of the ketone group to an alcohol (S-OH), hydroxylation of the thiophene ring (T-OH), elimination of the thiophene ring to a dicarboxylic acid (S-COOH), and conjugation with glucuronic acid or taurine. In 72-hr urine and feces of these species after po dosing of 1.6 to 2 mg/kg of S, S and these metabolites accounted for 46 to 92% of the dose and were mainly excreted in the urine. S was present as a major product (excreted mainly in conjugated form) in all species. S-OH was a major component in guinea pig and dog but a minor one in other species. T-OH was identified as a major metabolite in monkey, rat, mouse, and man, but a minor one in guinea pig, and it was absent in the dog. S-COOH was present as the minor metabolite in mouse and rat, and present at trace levels in dog, monkey, and man. Conjugation of the propionic acid functionality with taurine was observed only in the dog; in the other species, conjugation with glucuronic acid was extensive. Absorption parameters of S in the rat and monkey were similar to those in man; however, other species were very different from man.
