Di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP), the most commonly used plasticizer in flexible polyvinylchloride formulations, is a ubiquitous environmental contaminant. To date, no information exists on the potential health hazards from exposure to DEHP and/or its main metabolite, mono-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (MEHP), in high-risk conditions, such as pregnancy and(More)
A simple, specific and sensitive high-performance liquid chromatographic method has been developed and validated for the determination of finasteride in human plasma. A solid-phase extraction procedure was used to isolate finasteride from the biological matrix before quantitative analysis. The analyte was separated on a Symmetry reversed-phase column using(More)
Simvastatin (SV), an analogue of lovastatin, is the lactone form of 1',2',6',7',8',8a'-hexahydro-3,5-dihydroxy-2',6'-dimethyl-8'(2'',2''-di met hyl-1''-oxobutoxy)-1'-naphthalene-heptanoic acid (SVA) which lowers plasma cholesterol by inhibiting 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-CoA reductase. A fast, simple and accurate method for determining SV and SVA(More)
A direct method for the simultaneous determination of p-aminosalicylic acid (PAS) and its major decomposition product, m-aminophenol (MAP), is described. The analysis is based on the use of derivative UV-spectrophotometry and is a rapid procedure which gives accurate and precise results. A simple purity test which utilizes the third derivative spectrum is(More)
A high-performance liquid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA), acetyl-5-aminosalicylic acid (Ac-5-ASA) and 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (5-HSA) in human endoscopic intestinal biopsy with electrochemical detection has been developed and validated. A liquid-liquid extraction procedure was used to isolate(More)
A method for the simultaneous determination of losartan potassium and hydrochlorothiazide in tablets is described. The procedure, based on the use of reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography, is linear in the concentration range 3.0-7.0 microg ml(-1) for losartan and 0.5-2.0 microg ml(-1) for hydrochlorothiazide, is simple and rapid and allows(More)
Inborn errors of metabolism are genetic disorders due to impaired activity of enzymes, transporters, or cofactors resulting in accumulation of abnormal metabolites proximal to the metabolic block, lack of essential products or accumulation of by-products. Many of these disorders have serious clinical consequences for affected neonates, and an early(More)
Di-(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (DEHP) is the most commonly used plasticizer in flexible polyvinylchloride formulations, and is a widespread ubiquitous environmental contaminant. A potential role of exposure to DEHP and its primary metabolite, monoethylhexylphthalate (MEHP), on women's reproductive function is suggested in the current study. The aim of the study(More)
In this paper, a quantitative structure-retention relationship (QSRR) method is employed to model the retention behaviour in reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography of arylpropionic acid derivatives, largely used non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Computed molecular descriptors and the organic modifier content in the mobile phase(More)
Capillary Electrophoresis (CE) and Capillary Electrochromatography (CEC) have been used to determine losartan and hydrochlorothiazide. The CE separation was carried out in an uncoated capillary filled with a 100 mM sodium borate pH 9 solution containing trimethyl-beta-cyclodextrins. CEC was performed using a capillary packed with a RP-18 stationary phase.(More)
