Pharmacokinetics were studied in relation to hepatic side-effects in 20 patients (19 adults aged 18-53 years and one child of 11 years) undergoing BMT after conditioning with 1 mg/kg busulfan (every 6 hours for 16 doses). Busulfan was quantitated in plasma samples at 10 time points within the 6 h dosing interval using HPLC before and after dose numbers 1,(More)
Recent studies of our group have shown that the oxidation of the substituted anthraquinone skeleton is involved in the biotransformation of mitoxantrone. In this report the importance of this process with regard to the mode of action of the drug is investigated. This communication describes a new high performance liquid chromatography separation for(More)
A new metabolite of mitoxantrone in human, rat, and pig urine has been discovered by means of HPLC. The metabolite has been isolated by preparative HPLC from patient urine and is characterized by tandem mass spectrometry and UV-visible spectroscopy as 8,11-dihydroxy-4-(2-hydroxyethyl)-6-[[2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]ethyl](More)
1. Hplc-MS coupling has been used for the identification of thioether derivatives of the anticancer agent mitoxantrone in the bile of pig. 2. Three biologically relevant new thioether derivatives of mitoxantrone have been synthesized by a horseradish peroxidase-catalysed reaction. 3. The thioether derivatives have been characterized by means of ion-spray(More)
Three 13C-labeled 1,4-dihydroxy-5,8-bis(2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]-ethyl)amino-9,10- anthracenedione dihydrochloride (mitoxantrone) isotopomers were synthesized to prove the proposed chemical structures of human urinary metabolites by means of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. After application of labeled mitoxantrone to an anesthetized pig, urine was(More)
Conditions of separation of bovine spermatozoa according to their differences in electrophoretic mobility were studied using free-flow electrophoresis. Distribution of spermatozoa in the electric field depends on composition of buffer system, field intensities and temperature. Conditions are described for reproducible separation of anodically migrating(More)
