Pharmacokinetic studies of optically pure compounds after single enantiomer administration are becoming increasingly important. The process of racemization in vivo can diminish all expected advantages of single enantiomer treatment. Amlodipine, one of the calcium channel blockers, currently used in therapy as a racemate, is one of such drugs under study. In(More)
A rapid simple and robust reversed-phase HPLC method was developed for rapid screening in bioavailability studies or comparative bioequivalence studies. The method is specific for vancomycin as no interference from acetylsalicylic acid, paracetamol and caffeine was observed. The mean intra-day precision was from 11.7% (low concentration) to 0.3% (high(More)
Amlodipine, 3-ethyl 5-methyl-2-[(2-aminoethoxymethyl]-4-(2-chlorophenyl)-1,4-dihydro-6-methy l-3,5-pyridinedicarboxylate, is a chiral calcium antagonist, currently on the market and in therapeutic use as a racemate. The pharmacokinetic behaviour of R-(+)- and S-(-)-amlodipine after single enantiomer administration to healthy male human volunteers together(More)
The recombinant human tumour necrosis factor alpha from an extract of Escherichia coli was enriched to homogeneity according to specific activity and sodium dodecyl sulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis by purification using anion-exchange HPLC and hydrophobic interaction HPLC. Parallel experiments with the same separation methods, but carried out(More)
The separation of cimetidine from the metabolites cimetidine amide and cimetidine sulfoxide, endogenous creatinine and the internal standard ranitidine was achieved by capillary electrophoresis in less than 5 min. All compounds were well separated from cimetidine, including possible plasma ingredients, as the UV spectra of cimetidine standard and cimetidine(More)
