    The aim of the present study was to investigate pharmacokinetic profile and bioavailability of cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 selective nonsteroidal anti-infalmmatory drug nimesulide in bovine male calves after intravenous (i.v.) and intramuscular (i.m.) administration at a dose of 4.5mg/ kg BW. Blood samples were collected by jugular venipuncture at predetermined times following drug administration. Nimesulide in the plasma was assayed by using a validated HPTLC method. Plasma concentration-time data were subjected to compartmental analysis and pharmacokinetic parameters for nimesulide after i.v. and i.m. administration were calculated according to two and onecompartment open models, respectively. Following i.v. administration, a rapid distribution phase was followed by slower elimination phase. The half-lives during distribution phase (t1/2α) and terminal elimination phase (t1/2β.. Read More»
