ABSTRACT

2-Arylpropionic acid (profen) drugs are associated with severe hepatotoxicity; however, risk factors are still poorly understood. Acyl-coenzyme A (acyl-CoA) thioesters of profen drugs play a more important role in the covalent binding to rat hepatocyte proteins than the respective acyl-glucuronides. Therefore, we examined whether acyl-glucuronides, acyl-CoA thioesters and oxidative metabolites of profen drugs stereoselectively participated in liver damage. Cytotoxicity was determined by measuring lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage from three-dimensional cultured rat hepatocytes. LDH leakage was not induced by R-2-phenylpropionic acid and R-ibuprofen greatly forming acyl-CoA thioesters. S-Naproxen metabolized mainly by Uridine 5'-diphosphate (UDP)-glucuronosyl-transferase did not enhance LDH leakage. However, flurbiprofen (FLP) induced LDH leakage. A selective cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C11 inhibitor suppressed 40-50% of the R-FLP and S-FLP-induced cytotoxicity. Borneol non-stereoselectively accelerated the FLP-induced cytotoxicity. The R-FLP-induced cytotoxicity decreased intracellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels to 50% of untreated hepatocytes. An inhibitor of mitochondrial permeability transition pore, cyclosporin A (Cys A), rescued ATP levels and LDH leakage back to control levels. The reactive acyl-CoA thioesters and acyl-glucuronides were not associated with liver damage, denying one of the leading hypotheses. CYP metabolism of FLP non-stereoselectively participated in Cys A-sensitive cytotoxicity, suggesting mitochondrial injury.
