DA-7218 (a prodrug of DA-7157), a new oxazolidinone, was hydrolysed via phosphatase to form its active metabolite, DA-7157, in rats. The pharmacokinetic parameters of DA-7218 and DA-7157 were evaluated after intravenous (5, 10 and 20 mg kg(-1)) and oral (20, 50 and 100 mg kg(-1)) administration of DA-7218 to rats. DA-7218 and DA-7157 exhibited dose-proportional pharmacokinetics after both intravenous and oral administration of DA-7218 to rats. The stability of DA-7218 and DA-7157, blood partition of DA-7157, and the plasma protein binding of DA-7157 were also evaluated. DA-7218 was unstable in rat blood, plasma, bile and liver homogenates, but DA-7157 was stable, suggesting that DA-7218 is hydrolysed via phosphatase. DA-7157 rapidly reached equilibrium between plasma and blood cells, and the mean equilibrium plasma-to-blood cells ratio was 3.18, indicating that binding of DA-7157 to blood cells was not considerable. The protein binding of DA-7157 in fresh rat plasma was 93.4%.
