Moxifloxacin (1-cyclopropyl-6-fluoro-1,4-dihydro-8-methoxy-7-[(4aS,7aS)-octahydro-6H-pyrrolo-[3,4-b]pyridin-6-yl]-4-oxo-3-quinolinecarboxylic acid hydrochloride) is new, fourth generation fluoroquinolone with broaden spectrum of antibacterial activity. In the present work simple and rapid RP-HPLC method for the direct determination of moxifloxacin in human(More)
A RP-HPLC method for the separation and determination of impurities of moxifloxacin, in its pharmaceutical forms as well as moxifloxacin degradation products, was developed with the aid of DryLab software and chemometric (response surface) approach. The separation of four synthesis-related impurities was achieved on a Waters C(18) XTerra column using a(More)
Complex formation between aluminum(III) ion and fluoroquinolone antibacterials-either moxifloxacin (4th generation antibiotic) or fleroxacin (2nd generation antibiotic) were studied in aqueous solutions without and in the presence of sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS). The investigations were performed by glass electrode potentiometric (ionic medium: 0.1 mol/dm(3)(More)
Molybdenum, vanadium and tungsten compounds are widely applied as analytical reagents for determination of numerous pharmacologically active substances and different biochemical parameters. Recent data from the available literature pointed to a very potent biomedical activity of compounds containing these trace elements. The present paper represents a(More)
HPLC determination of fleroxacin in dosage forms was carried out using either reversed-phase column YMC pack ODS-AQ or Supelco LC Hisep shielded hydrophobic phase column, with UV detection at 280 nm. The mobile phase for ODS column consisted of 50:50:0.5 v/v/v and for Hisep column 15:85:0.5 v/v/v acetonitrile-water-triethylamine. The pH of the mobile phase(More)
Both apoptosis and micronuclei formation reflect cytogenetic damage in cells and could contribute to cell homeostasis. The aim of this study was to evaluate apoptosis in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBLs) of patients with differentiated thyroid cancer (DTC) before and after 131-iodine (131-I)-therapy and its correlation with micronuclei (MN) frequency. The(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM Hepatitis C is an important sociomedical problem worldwide due to frequent progression to chronic disease, occurrence of liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Standard pegylated interferon alfa 2a plus ribavirin therapy results in resolution of infection only in 50% of patients. The aim of this study was to determine the association(More)
The complex formation equilibria between gadolinium(III) ion and moxifloxacin (MOXI) were studied in aqueous solutions. The investigations were performed by glass electrode potentiometric (ionic medium: 0.1mol dm-3 LiCl, 298 K) and UV spectrophotometric measurements. In the concentration range 0.5≤ [Gd3+] ≤ 1.0; 1.0 ≤ [MOXI] £ 2.0 mmol dm-3 ([MOXI]/[Gd] =(More)
The speciation of Cu2+, Ni2+ and Zn2+ ions in the presence of the fluoroquinolones (FQs) moxifloxacin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin and ciprofloxacin, in human blood plasma was studied under physiological conditions by computer simulation. The speciation was calculated using an updated model of human blood plasma including over 6,000 species with the aid of the(More)
