D0019 | Celecoxib

Molecular Formula C17H14F3N3O2S
Molecular Weight 381.4
State solid
Clearance Apparent clearance (CL/F), single oral 200 mg dose, healthy subjects = 27.7 L/hr [FDA label].
Volume of distribution The apparent volume of distribution at steady state (Vss/F) is about 400 L, suggesting extensive distribution into various tissues. Celecoxib is not preferentially bound to red blood cells [FDA label].
Route of elimination Celecoxib is eliminated predominantly by hepatic metabolism with little (<3%) unchanged drug recovered in the urine and feces. 57% of the oral dose is excreted in the feces and 27% is excreted into the urine. The primary metabolite in urine and feces was the carboxylic acid metabolite (73%). The amount of glucuronide in the urine is low [FDA label].
Protein binding 97%, primarily to albumin in healthy patients [FDA label].
Half life The effective half-life is approximately 11 hours when a single 200 mg dose is given to healthy subjects. Terminal half-life is generally variable because of the low solubility of the drug thus prolonging absorption [FDA label].
Absorption Easily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. When a single dose of 200 mg is given to healthy subjects, peak plasma levels occur 3 hours after an oral dose. The peak plasma level is 705 ng/mL. Absolute bioavailability studies have not been conducted. When multiple doses are given, steady-state is reached on or before Day 5. When taken with a high-fat meal, peak plasma levels are delayed for about 1 to 2 hours with an increase in total absorption (AUC) of 10% to 20% [FDA label]. A meta-analysis of pharmacokinetic studies has suggested an approximately 40% higher AUC (area under the curve) of celecoxib in black patients compared to Caucasians for unknown reasons [L3296].
