Ceramide analysis was developed with gradient elution in non-aqueous reversed-phase liquid chromatography with evaporative light scattering detection (ELSD) or postcolumn fluorescence detection. Fluorescence detection (excitation, 360 nm; emission, 425 nm) after postcolumn formation of mixed assemblies between eluted ceramides and(More)
A simple, rapid method for the simultaneous determination of cardiovascular drugs: celiprolol, bisoprolol and irbesartan in human plasma is described. The two main features of the proposed method deal first, with a simultaneous solid phase extraction of weakly basic beta-blockers derivatives and irbesartan which exhibit weak acidic properties; second with(More)
The native fluorescence of the main biological derivatives of folic acid is maximal at acidic pH. The intensities obtained with 5-methyltetrahydrofolic acid, tetrahydrofolic acid, and formyltetrahydrofolic acid are in the ratio 10/5/1. After separating the metabolites by reversed phase high-performance liquid chromatography, the fluorometric detection limit(More)
Innovative medical devices offer solutions to medical problems and greatly improve patients' outcomes. Like National Health Technology Assessment (HTA) agencies, hospitals face numerous requests for innovative and costly medical devices. To help local decision-makers, different approaches of hospital-based HTA (HB-HTA) have been adopted worldwide. The(More)
A general approach, still few exploited so far and never associated with microbore-LC, consisting of detection of various lipid classes (i.e. phospholipids, triglycerides, ceramides and glycosphingolipids) by non-covalent association with 1,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene (DPH) fluorescence probe is developed. This mode of detection was coupled with non-aqueous(More)
1,6-Diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene (DPH) is the most widely proposed molecular probe for the post-column fluorescence derivatization of lipids after liquid chromatography separation. This kind of detection consists of a supramolecular combination of DPH and eluted lipids. The detection is optimally performed in a mainly aqueous environment (over 80% v/v) because(More)
The physico-chemical properties and the stability of anthralin, a potent antipsoriatic agent, has been investigated in model systems by optical absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy and by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry. Systematic studies were carried out on anthralin and its oxidation products (1,8-dihydroxyanthraquinone and(More)
Ibuprofen (IBU) loaded polyvinyl alcohol-based hydrogel beads (IBU-BB) were designed to alleviate side effects such as inflammation and pain following uterine artery embolization for the treatment of leiomyomata. The present in vitro and in vivo study examines whether IBU-BB provide a sustained-release of the drug. In vitro release studies of IBU from(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is a serious cause of death among immune-compromised patients such as organ-transplant recipients. Recently, voriconazole has been approved for first-line therapy in IPA. Theoretically, optimal voriconazole blood level (superior to 1 mg/L according to recent studies) should be reached within 24(More)
The advent of innovative techniques in mass spectrometry, especially in the area of imaging, prompted us to evaluate two promising techniques: secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry. For this purpose, sections of cutaneous biopsies from patients affected by Fabry's disease and control(More)
