In this anion-exchange "high-performance" liquid-chromatographic method of analysis for purine nucleotides, the nucleotides are separated with high efficiency and selectivity on a weak anion exchanger (Hypersil APS 2, 3-micron particle size) by elution with a gradient of eluent pH and concentration. Applying this method to analysis for these compounds in(More)
The clinical and biochemical features of five cases of alcaptonuria were reported. The concentration of homogentisic acid was determined in urine and also in plasma using a rapid, sensitive and specific HPLC method. In all five cases, the concentrations of homogentisic acid were elevated in urine rising up to 46.5 mmol/24 h. In plasma, homogentisic acid(More)
A selective and sensitive reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method for the analysis of thiopurine bases, nucleosides and nucleotides in biological samples was developed. A simple and rapid sample treatment procedure using perchloric acid deproteinization with dithiothreitol for the analysis of thiopurine bases and nucleosides is presented. The addition(More)
In this rapid, specific, and sensitive high-performance liquid-chromatographic method of analysis for homogentisic acid in biological fluids, homogentisic acid is separated on a column of Nucleosil CN. This method, which we applied to the diagnosis of three cases of alcaptonuria, represents a suitable analytical tool for the diagnosis of alcaptonuria.
The levels of hypoxanthine and xanthine are determined in plasma, erythrocyte, and urine samples by a reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method. The hypoxanthine concentration increases in erythrocyte and plasma samples when whole blood is stored at room temperature between sampling and centrifugation. Furthermore, the hypoxanthine(More)
Plasma concentrations of theophylline and caffeine in seven premature neonates receiving theophylline orally for treatment of apnea at age one to 9 days were measured by high performance liquid chromatography, ultraviolet spectrophotometry, and mass spectrometry. Plasma concentrations of caffeine increased from 1.8 mg/l (range = 0.1 to 3.7) at day one to(More)
