Summary

The influence of triiodothyronine (5 μg/kg of body weight, sc, q 12 h for 7 days) on antipyrine (ap, 25 mg/kg, iv) plasma elimination and urinary metabolite excretion was studied in castrated male dwarf goats. After triiodothyronine treatment, a significant increase in ap elimination was found. However, the observed changes in clearances for production of ap metabolites (nor-ap, 3-hydroxymethyl-ap; 4-hydroxy-ap, and 4,4′-dihydroxy-ap) do not suggest a clear selectivity of triiodothyronine toward any of the metabolic pathways of ap.

Summary

The influence of infection with Ehrlichia phagocytophila (ep) on serum thyroid hormone concentrations and on antipyrine (25 mg/kg of body weight, iv) plasma elimination and urinary metabolite excretion was studied in castrated male dwarf goats. Mean thyroid hormone concentrations moderately decreased in ep-infected goats, with maximal decrease in total and free triiodothyronine and thyroxine serum concentrations of 56, 64, 23, and 19%, respectively. The estimated pharmacokinetic values of antipyrine (ap) in ep-infected goats were similar to those in the goats when healthy. However, glucuronidation of the ap-metabolites 3-hydroxymethyl-ap, 4,4′-dihydroxy-ap, and 4-hydroxy-ap was reduced during the febrile episode of the acute-phase response to ep infection.
