A liquid chromatography method has been established for the reliable determination of unbound gemifloxacin concentrations in kidney, lung and liver microdialysates of rats. Microdialysis probes were inserted into tissues of rats, and then dialysates were collected at regular time intervals after intravenous administration of gemifloxacin (40 mg kg(-1)). A(More)
Moxifloxacin is reported to have increased distribution into the prostate compared with older fluoroquinolones such as norfloxacin and ciprofloxacin, being able to reach tissue-to-plasma concentration ratios greater than unity. However, most of these studies use tissue homogenates derived from biopsy samples, which can lead to overestimation of free(More)
Levofloxacin (LEV) is a broad-spectrum fluoroquinolone used to treat pneumonia, urinary tract infections, chronic bacterial bronchitis, and prostatitis. Efflux transporters, primarily P-glycoprotein (P-gp), are involved in LEV's tissue penetration. In the present work, LEV free lung and prostate interstitial space fluid (ISF) concentrations were evaluated(More)
A rapid and highly sensitive method by LC-MS/MS was developed and validated for the quantification of an antimalarial candidate (LAFIS10) in rat plasma using dexamethasone as internal standard (IS). The chromatographic separation was performed with a Poroshell 120 EC-C18 column. The mobile phase consisted of water (A) and acetonitrile (B), both containing(More)
