The phenolic ionization constants in aqueous solution of doxorubicin, daunorubicin and nine daunorubicin analogues with different substitution patterns at the anthraquinone moiety have been determined spectrophotometrically upon taking into account aggregation effects with extrapolation to infinite dilution. In contrast with an early literature report(More)
Quantitative acid hydrolysis followed by HPLC separation has been established as an analytical procedure for the determination of polymer-bound doxorubicin (an anti-cancer drug) and D-galactosamine (a liver-targetting moiety) in the polymer-drug conjugates FCE 28068 and FCE 28069. Optimal conditions of hydrolysis were determined in both cases: 1 N HCl, 50(More)
Although tissue and cell manipulation nowadays is a common task in biomedical analysis, there are still many different ways to accomplish it, most of which are still not sufficiently general, inexpensive, accurate, efficient or effective. Several problems arise both for in vivo or in vitro analysis, such as the maximum overall size of the device and the(More)
The equilibrium and kinetic aspects of the interaction between four anthracyclines and two synthetic self-complementary hexanucleotides was investigated by fluorescence detection. Two of the studied anthracyclines are widely used antitumor drugs: doxorubicin (1, formerly adriamycin) and daunorubicin (2, formerly daunomycin). The other two,(More)
