Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): environmental contaminant
Any minor or unwanted substance introduced into the environment that can have undesired effects.
Biological Role(s): cyclooxygenase 2 inhibitor
A cyclooxygenase inhibitor that interferes with the action of cyclooxygenase 2.
cyclooxygenase 1 inhibitor
A cyclooxygenase inhibitor that interferes with the action of cyclooxygenase 1.
non-narcotic analgesic
A drug that has principally analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. Non-narcotic analgesics do not bind to opioid receptors.
A xenobiotic (Greek, xenos "foreign"; bios "life") is a compound that is foreign to a living organism. Principal xenobiotics include: drugs, carcinogens and various compounds that have been introduced into the environment by artificial means.
hepatotoxic agent
A role played by a chemical compound exihibiting itself through the ability to induce damage to the liver in animals.
human blood serum metabolite
Any metabolite (endogenous or exogenous) found in human blood serum samples.
cyclooxygenase 3 inhibitor
A cyclooxygenase inhibitor that interferes with the action of cyclooxygenase 3.
ferroptosis inducer
Any substance that induces or promotes ferroptosis (a type of programmed cell death dependent on iron and characterized by the accumulation of lipid peroxides) in organisms.
Application(s): non-narcotic analgesic
A drug that has principally analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. Non-narcotic analgesics do not bind to opioid receptors.
A drug that prevents or reduces fever by lowering the body temperature from a raised state. An antipyretic will not affect the normal body temperature if one does not have fever. Antipyretics cause the hypothalamus to override an interleukin-induced increase in temperature. The body will then work to lower the temperature and the result is a reduction in fever.
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug
An anti-inflammatory drug that is not a steroid. In addition to anti-inflammatory actions, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs have analgesic, antipyretic, and platelet-inhibitory actions. They act by blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, which converts arachidonic acid to cyclic endoperoxides, precursors of prostaglandins.
Any compound that supports healthy aging, slows the biological aging process, or extends lifespan.
