Abstract Tetrodotoxin TTX is a powerful sodium channel blocker that in low doses can safely relieve severe pain. Studying the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion ADME of TTX is challenging given the extremely low lethal dose. We conducted radiolabeled ADME studies in Sprague-Dawley rats. After a single dose of 6 μg-16 μCi-kg 11-3HTTX, pharmacokinetics of plasma total radioactivity were similar in male and female rats. Maximum radioactivity 5.56 ng Eq.-mL was reached in 10 min. 3HTTX was below detection in plasma after 24 h. The area under the curve from 0 to 8 h was 5.89 h·ng Eq.-mL; mean residence time was 1.62 h and t½ was 2.31 h. Bile secretion accounted for 0.43% and approximately 51% of the dose was recovered in the urine, the predominant route of elimination. Approximately 69% was recovered, suggesting that hydrogen tritium exchange in rats produced tritiated water excreted in breath and saliva. Average total radioactivity in the stomach, lungs, kidney and intestines was higher than plasma concentrations. Metabolite analysis of plasma, urine and feces samples demonstrated oxidized TTX, the only identified metabolite. In conclusion, TTX was rapidly absorbed and excreted in rats, a standard preclinical model used to guide the design of clinical trials. View Full-Text
