A new high-performance liquid chromatography method is presented for the determination of 10 frequently prescribed tricyclic and nontricyclic antidepressants: imipramine, amitriptyline, clomipramine, fluoxetine, sertraline, paroxetine, citalopram, mirtazapine, moclobemide and duloxetine. The simple and accurate sample preparation step, consisted of(More)
A sensitive and reproducible stir bar-sorptive extraction and high performance liquid chromatography-UV detection (SBSE/HPLC-UV) method for therapeutic drug monitoring of rifampicin in plasma samples is described and compared with a liquid:liquid extraction (LLE/HPLC-UV) method. This miniaturized method can result in faster analysis, higher sample(More)
Drug idiosyncrasy is an adverse event of unknown etiology that occurs in a small fraction of people taking a drug. The histamine2 (H2)-receptor antagonist ranitidine causes idiosyncratic reactions in patients. To investigate the hypothesis that ranitidine could induce hematological toxic effects, the drug was administered intraperitoneally (ip) to two of(More)
A sensitive and reproducible stir bar-sorptive extraction and high-performance liquid chromatography-UV detection (SBSE/HPLC-UV) method for therapeutic drug monitoring of carbamazepine, carbamazepine-10,11-epoxide, phenytoin and phenobarbital in plasma samples is described and compared with a liquid:liquid extraction (LLE/HPLC-UV) method. Important factors(More)
Dapsone (DDS) (4,4'diaminodiphenylsulfone), the drug of choice for the treatment of leprosy, frequently induces haemolytic anaemia and methaemoglobinaemia. N-hydroxylation, one of the major pathways of biotransformation, has been constantly related to the methaemoglobinaemia observed with the use of the drug. In order to determine the reversible inhibition(More)
Dapsone use is frequently associated to hematological side effects such as methemoglobinemia and hemolytic anemia, which are related to N-hydroxylation mediated by the P450 enzyme system. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of L-arginine supplementation, a precursor for the synthesis of nitric oxide, as single or multiple dose(More)
Leprosy, a chronic granulomatous infectocontagious disease transmitted by Mycobacterium leprae, continues to be prevalent today, especially in underdeveloped countries and its paucibacillary form with a single lesion is being treated with rifampicin (600mg), ofloxacin (400mg) and minocycline (100mg) administered as a single dose (ROM scheme). Thus, the(More)
