Determination of a new naphthoquinone derivative, NQ12, in human plasma and urine by high-performance liquid chromatography.


A high-performance liquid chromatographic method was developed for the determination of a new phospholipase A2 inhibitor, NQ12, in human plasma and urine. The sample preparation was simple: 2 volumes of acetonitrile were added to the biological samples to deproteinize it. A 50-microl aliquot of the supernatant was injected onto a C18 reversed-phase column… (More)
