We believe rather that depletion of glucuronic acid by DPH most likely increased the hepatotoxicity of TMP-SMZ, resulting in acute fulminant hepatic failure.
Valproate is extensively conjugated to glucuronic acid, and more than half of an ingested dose is excreted in the urine as the glucuronide, along with smaller amounts of hydroxylated valproate metabolites and their glucuronide conjugates.
Other GAGs containing glucuronic acid, such as heparin, or even free glucuronic acid on its own, will have the same response as chondroitin.
EtG is another minor metabolite of alcohol that forms in the liver when alcohol reacts with glucuronic acid, a substance which works to detoxify drugs by turning them into water-soluble compounds that can be easily removed from the body.
The major component (73 % of radioactivity) in faeces is laropiprant (comprising unabsorbed active substance and/or hydrolysed glucuronic acid conjugate).

In this study, we found that nonylphenol and octylphenol are also conjugated with glucuronic acid by adult rat liver microsomes.
This observation suggests that phenolics are metabolized quickly, primarily by methylation or conjugation with sulfate or glucuronic acid, but continue to circulate in the plasma as the metabolites.
Direct conjugation, in which the steroid is conjugated to glucuronic acid or sulfate, produces a more water-soluble product that can then be excreted in bile and urine (7,10).

The m/z 193, 175, and 113 fragments cannot be demonstrated to be products of phenytoin, but they can be attributed to parent and daughter fragments known to exist for glucuronic acid.
