Monitoring of the plasmatic levels of levodopa (LEV) and carbidopa (CAR) is necessary to adjust the dose of these drugs according to the individual needs of Parkinson's disease patients. To support drug therapeutic monitoring, a method using HILIC mode and LC-MS/MS was developed for the simultaneous determination of carbidopa, levodopa, and its metabolites(More)
The objective of this work was to develop and validate a HILIC-MS/MS method for the simultaneous determination of metformin and vildagliptin in human plasma. Chromatographic separation was achieved using an Atlantis HILIC Silica 150-mm × 2.1-mm, 3-μm particle size column maintained at 40°C. The isocratic mobile phase consisted of 20% water and 80%(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we developed and validated a HPLC-MS/MS method capable of simultaneously determining levodopa, carbidopa, entacapone, tolcapone, 3-O-methyldopa and dopamine in human plasma. RESULTS & METHODOLOGY: Chromatographic separation was achieved using a C8 column with a mobile phase consisting of a gradient of water and(More)
This paper discusses the use of the Policy Based Network paradigm, COPS (Common Open Policy Service) and NSIS (Next Steps In Signalling) frameworks being developed by the IETF, in the context of the European Project EuQoS (End-to-End Quality of Service over Heterogeneous Networks). An overview of the EuQoS architecture is provided followed by the analysis(More)
