Although many prodrugs have been synthesized with consideration of these chem- Revised 16 February 2018 ical properties, there has been little study on the design of a structure with consideration of biological Accepted 16 February 2018 properties such as substrate recognition ability of metabolic enzymes. In this report, chemical synthesis Available online 21 February 2018 and evaluation of indomethacin prodrugs metabolically activated by human carboxylesterase 1 (hCES1) are described. The synthesized prodrugs were subjected to hydrolysis reactions in solutions of human Keywords: liver microsomes (HLM), human intestine microsomes (HIM) and hCES1, and the hydrolytic parameters Indomethacin were investigated to evaluate the hydrolytic rates of
