PEC/PNEC =0.59/0.64 = 0.92 for Naproxen which means that the phrase 'Use of the medicine has been considered to

result in low environmental risk.' is used for Level 1 and 2.

The PEC is based on the following data:

A = 11893.6 kg Naproxen (use data from Läkemedelsstatistik AB, LSAB, 2010)

PEC = 1.5 × 10–6 × 11893.6 × (100–67) = 0.59 μg/l

Ecotoxicological studies: [5]

Green alga (Desmodesmus subspicatus):

ErC50 72 h =39 000 μg/l (OECD 201)

NOEC 72 h = 3 900 μg/l (OECD 201)

Water-flea (Daphnia magna):

EC50 48 h = 37 000 μg/l (OECD 202)

Water-flea chronic (Ceriodaphnia dubia):

chronic NOEC 192 h = 32 μg/l (Environment Canada Method)

Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss):

LC50 96 h = 52 000 μg/l (OECD 203)


NOEC = 30 000 μg/l (toxicity control in inherent biodegradation test)

The PNEC is based on the following data:

The PNEC is based on the lower of two chronic NOECs available (water-flea, Ceriodaphnia) and 50 is the assessment factor used.

PNEC = 32/50 = 0.64 μg/l


Naproxen is not readily biodegradable, however, it is inherently biodegradable and actual, measured elimination rates in various sewage works range from 0% to >99%, with a median of approximately 67%. Moreover, naproxen in surface waters is short-lived, due to biodegradation and photolysis in superficial layers (which is not included in the above PEC calculation). A surface water half-life in late summer in Switzerland at ~47° N was determined at 14 days. Hence, naproxen is rapidly degraded in sewage works and surface waters and is nonpersistent. [5]


Naproxen has no significant bioaccumulation potential, with measured logD values below 1.1 at pH 6.5–7.4.


Subsequent to oral application, naproxen shows rapid uptake, very high bioavailability (~99%) and equally high plasma protein binding. The plasma half-life is around 14 (12–15) h, longer in older people. Approximately 30% of absorbed naproxen undergoes Phase I metabolism through 6-O-demethlyation in liver microsomes, which is mediated by cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme isoforms CYP2C9 and CYP1A2. Both the approximately 70% native and the 30% 6-O-desmethyl naproxen subsequently undergo Phase II metabolism by conjugation. Excretion of naproxen in man is mainly (≥95%) by urinary pathway in the form of glucuronic acid or other conjugates of native and 6-O-desmethyl naproxen. [3, 4]
