A large amount of off-site blood sampling are analysed in our laboratory with a variable conveying time of up to 7 hours. Fifteen healthy volunteers were included in this study. The aim was to evaluate the stability of current analytes in regard to the temperature and the time before centrifugation. Whole blood obtained by venipuncture was collected into(More)
A reversed-phase ion-pair high-performance liquid chromatographic method with ultraviolet detection is described for the simultaneous measurement of chloroquine, proguanil and their major metabolites in human plasma, erythrocytes and urine. After a liquid-solid extraction on a Bond Elut C8 cartridge, the compounds are separated on a C8 Lichrospher 60 RP(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic method with ultraviolet detection is described for the simultaneous measurement of pyrimethamine and sulphadoxine in human plasma. After an automated liquid-solid extraction on a C8 cartridge, the compounds are separated on a C18 column by isocratic elution; the mobile phase is methanol-acetonitrile-water (10:25:65,(More)
A reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatographic method with ultraviolet detection is described for the measurement of doxycycline in human plasma and urine. After liquid-solid extraction on a Bond Elut C18 cartridge, doxycycline and demeclocycline (internal standard) are separated on a Novapak C18 column by isocratic elution. The mobile phase(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic method with fluorescence detection is described for the simultaneous measurement of quinine, chloroquine and mono- and bidesethylchloroquine in human plasma, erythrocytes and urine. After a liquid-solid extraction on a Bond Elut C8 cartridge, the compounds are separated on an Inertsil silica column by gradient(More)
Chloroquine is widely used as self-medication for presumptive treatment of malaria despite the existence of parasite resistance to the drug. Recent studies suggest that tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) overproduction probably has a causal association with poor outcome in cerebral malaria. In addition, chloroquine has been shown to have inhibitory(More)
A rapid, accurate, and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method, with fluorimetric detection, for the simultaneous measurement of halofantrine and desbutylhalofantrine in human plasma or whole blood is described. Sample preparation involved protein precipitation, followed by an efficient solid-phase extraction on a C8 cartridge.(More)
