Undoubtedly, the use of oximes represents real progress in counteracting intoxications with organophosphates (OP), through potentiating antidotal effects of atropine. The penetration extent of these compounds through the blood-brain barrier (BBB) to significantly reactivate phosphorylated or phosphonylated acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in the brain still(More)
Separation of metformin and glibenclamide was achieved within a single chromatographic run on a Zorbax CN column, under isocratic conditions, using acetonitrile and aqueous component (0.01 moles/L ammonium acetate adjusted at pH 3.5 with acetic acid) in volumetric ratio 1/1. Plasma sample preparation is based on protein precipitation by means of organic(More)
The metabolic processes frequently trigger highly complex pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) characteristics for the coexisting entities, parent drug and its active or inactive metabolites. The interpretation of both individual and cumulative profiles, frequently used in the therapeutic drug monitoring procedures, must take into consideration the(More)
The assay of diltiazem (DLTZ) and its active metabolites desacetyldiltiazem (DAcD) and desmethyldiltiazem (DMeD) in plasma samples was achieved by means of an HPLC/(ESI)MS(2) method. The diastereoisomer of diltiazem, namely {(2R,3S)-5-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-2-(4-methoxyphenyl)-4-oxo-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1,5-benzothiazepin-3-yl acetate} was used as internal(More)
INTRODUCTION The altered profiles of prolactin secretion in the anterior hypophysis, generated by pathological, pharmacological or toxicological causes, have special consequences on multiple functions in both genders. AREAS COVERED This selective review presents the main mechanisms controlling prolactin secretion, focusing on the interplay of various(More)
A simple and fast method intended for large-scale bioequivalence studies for the determination of glibenclamide in plasma samples is presented. The chromatographic separation was achieved on a monolithic octadecyl chemically modified silicagel column and a mobile phase containing 42% aqueous 0.1% HCOOH solution (v/v) and 58% acetonitrile, at a flow rate of(More)
Inter- and intra-individual variability of the loratadine (LOR) metabolism in Caucasian subjects was assessed during a bioequivalence study for two pharmaceutical formulations (solid oral dosage forms) containing 10 mg of the active substance. The analytical data were obtained by applying a reliable, low-cost and sensitive ion pair liquid(More)
Chromatographic retention data obtained from interactions between some oxime-type compounds and different stationary phases (involving hydrophobic interaction, ion pairing formation availability, pi-pi, H-bonding, dipole-dipole, ion-dipole, electrostatic interaction and glycoprotein binding ability) have been studied. The logarithms of the capacity factors(More)
BACKGROUND The inherent reproducibility of a bioanalytical approach is usually sustained through incurred sample reanalysis (ISR). Questions relating to the number of ISRs, the right moment for performing reanalysis, the way of performing an appropriate statistical refinement of experimental data and actions to be taken in the case of failure are frequently(More)
A new sensitive HPLC/MS/MS method for simultaneous determination of furosemide, spironolactone and canrenone in human plasma samples is presented. Electrospray ionization source (ESI) has been used. The tandem MS detection was performed under MRM conditions, in the negative ion mode for furosemide and indapamide (internal standard 1) and in the positive ion(More)
