Purpose. Indapamide, a non-thiazide antihypertensive diuretic agent, has been widely coadministered with other classes of antihypertensive agents to reach target systolic blood pressure. Indapamide is extensively metabolized by cytochromes P450. Interaction of indapamide and other antihypertensive drugs are unknown. We investigated the effects of other antihypertensive drugs on the metabolism and pharmacokinetics of indapamide in vitro and in vivo. Methods. Indapamide metabolism was studies in vitro using human liver microsomes pretreated with or without different concentrations of CYP-selective inhibitors and seven major antihypertensive drugs, felodipine, nifedipine, nitrendipine, telmisartan, irbesartan, valsartan and puerarin. Furthermore, the pharmacokinetics of indapamide was determined by HPLC-MS/MS to evaluate the effects of felodipine coadministered on the bioavailability of indapamide in rats in vivo. Results. The Km and Vmax of indapamide metabolism were 114.35 ± 3.47 μM and 23.13 ± 6.61 μmol/g/min. The metabolites of indapamide, hydroxyl-indapamide and dehydrogen-indapamide, were followed. CYP3A4 and CYP2C19 were involved in indapamide metabolism in human live microsomes. In addition, felodipine, nifedipine and nitrendipine significantly inhibited indapamide metabolism with the maximum inhibitory rates of 82.6%, 72% and 95%, respectively. Felodipine significantly elevated indapamide plasma concentration and prolonged its half-life. Conclusions. Combination therapy of indapamide and felodipine might lead to the alteration of indapamide metabolism and pharmacokinetics. The consequence of such an interaction that may include increased effectiveness and side effect needs to be tudeis in human.

Photodegradation of fleroxacin is investigated in different injections and solutions. After UV irradiation, fleroxacin was degraded to afford two major products in large-volume injection (specification, 200 mg:100 ml), while degraded to afford another major product in small-volume injection (specification, 200 mg:2 ml). The photodegradation products were detected and isolated by reversed-phase HPLC. Based on the spectral data (FT-IR, MS n, TOF-MS, 1H/ 13C, DEPT, and 2D NMR), the structures of these products were: 8-fluoro-9-(4-methyl-piperazin-1-yl)-6-oxo-2, 3-dihydro-6H-1-oxa-3a-aza-phenalene-5-carboxylic acid (impurity-I); 6-fluoro-1-(2-fluoro-ethyl)-7-(2-methylamino-ethylamino)-4-oxo-1, 4-dihydro-quinoline-3-carboxylic acid (impurity-II); and 6,8-difluoro-1-(2- fluoro-ethyl)-7-(2-methylamino-ethylamino)-4-oxo-1,4-dihydro-quinoline-3- carboxylic acid (impurity-III), respectively. Different photodegradation pathways of fleroxacin were proposed, which led to the different stability characteristics of fleroxacin in the injections. The fluorine atom at C8 is more photolabile in dilute injection, so defluorination and cyclization reactions are prone to take place, whereas photo irradiation only cause ring-opening oxidation reaction of piperazine side chain in concentrated injection. © 2011 American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.

A novel sensing fluorescent probe based on the fluorescence quenching of the thioglycolic acid-capped CuInS2/ZnS quantum dots (CuInS 2/ZnS/TGA QDs) was established for cobalt ions detection. The fluorescence quenching of CuInS2/ZnS/TGA QDs was due to the increasing surface deficiency and the inner-filter effect, which were attributed to the reaction between Co2+ and sulfur bonds on the surface of QDs. The quenching curve could be fitted by a typical Stern-Volmer-type equation, with a linear relationship between the quenching efficiency and the concentration of cobalt ions in the range of 0.3012-90.36 μmol L -1. And the detection limit (S/N=3) for Co2+ was 0.16 μmol L-1. Therefore, the established probe provided a simple, rapid, cheap and sensitive method for Co2+ detection. In a word, this method can be used to detect Co2+ in the environment. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Nanoparticles, novel materials with considerable potential in various applications, have made a significant contribution to the development of stationary phases in chromatography. In capillary electrochromatography (CEC), the process for creating stationary phases has a substantial effect on separation performance. Due to their extraordinary properties, nanoparticles (NPs) can generally improve the separation selectivity, the column efficiency and the chemical stability of CEC.This review focuses on the latest applications and achievements of immobilizing NPs in stationary phases for CEC. For each type of NP, we describe different immobilization strategies, including physical adsorption on surfaces, covalent bonding and other methods. Also, we present more practical applications based on functional post-modifications of the stationary phase containing NPs. Further, we discuss potential directions and issues worth exploring for novel stationary phases containing NPs. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Pepsin-modified affinity monolithic capillary electrochromatography, a novel microanalysis system, was developed by the covalent bonding of pepsin on silica monolith. The column was successfully applied in the chiral separation of (±)-nefopam. Furthermore, the electrochromatographic performance of the pepsin-functionalized monolith for enantiomeric analysis was evaluated in terms of protein content, pH of running buffer, sample volume, buffer concentration, applied voltage, and capillary temperature. The relative standard deviation (%RSD) values of retention time (intraday <0.53, n = 10; interday <0.53, n = 10; column-to-column <0.70, n = 20; and batch-to-batch <0.80, n = 20) indicated satisfactory stability of these columns. No appreciable change was observed in retention and resolution for chiral recognition of (±)-nefopam in 50 days with 100 injections. The proteolytic activity of this stationary phase was further characterized with bovine serum albumin as substrate for online protein digestion. As for monolithic immobilized enzyme reactor, successive protein injections confirmed both the operational stability and ability to reuse the bioreactor for at least 20 digestions. It implied that the affinity monolith used in this research opens a new path of exploring particularly versatile class of enzymes to develop enzyme-modified affinity capillary monolith for enantioseparation. © 2014 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

A selective capillary electrophoresis method for determination of enantiomeric purity of RS86017, a new antiarrhythmic agent with two chiral centers, was developed and validated using sulfobutyl ether-β-cyclodextrin as chiral selector. The concentration of the chiral selector and organic modifier, pH of background electrolyte (BGE), capillary temperature, and applied voltage were systematically optimized by using orthogonal design and concentration of chiral selector was further optimized. The optimal conditions included 25. mM phosphate buffer at pH 8.0, containing 28. mg/mL sulfobutyl ether-β-cyclodextrin and 20% acetonitrile as running buffer, an applied voltage of 22. kV, and a temperature of 20 °C. The detection wavelength was 206. nm. The obtained method was capable of separating RS86017 from its potential chiral impurities, the S,R-enantiomer, the R,R-diastereomer and the S,S-diastereomer with a short analysis time of 10. min. The separation was validated with respect to its selectivity, repeatability, linearity, precision, accuracy, limits of detection (LOD), limits of quantitation (LOQ) and robustness testing. The LODs and LOQs were 0.8 μg/mL and 2.5 μg/mL for all isomers of RS86017, respectively. Finally, the method was used to investigate the chiral purity of RS86017 in bulk samples. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.

Seven impurities in agomelatine drug substance were determined by a newly developed RP-HPLC method. Structures of potential impurities were confirmed by NMR and IR analysis. Efficient chromatographic separation was achieved on Hypersil BDS C18 column (250mm×4.6mm, 5μm) in gradient mode by using a binary mixture of potassium dihydrogen phosphate (15mM, pH adjusted to 3.0) and acetonitrile at a flow rate of 1.0ml/min. A photodiode array detector set at 230nm was used for detection. Forced degradation studies showed that the proposed method was specific, and agomelatine was found to be susceptible to acidic and alkaline conditions. The method was validated according to ICH guidelines with respect to specificity, sensitivity, precision, linearity, accuracy, robustness and system suitability. Detection limit of impurities was in the range of 0.0008-0.0047%. Regression analysis showed correlation coefficient value greater than 0.999 for agomelatine and its seven impurities. Accuracy of the method was established based on the recovery obtained between 94.4% and 106.7% for all impurities. The validation results demonstrated that the developed method was suitable for the quantitative determination of potential impurities in agomelatine. A possible mechanism for the formation of impurities was proposed. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

A system of capillary silica monolith with bovine serum albumin (BSA) functionalized through two approaches for affinity monolithic capillary electrochromatography (AMCEC) was developed. Covalent immobilization conditions for two different Schiff base methods, which employed 3-glycidopropyl trimethoxysilane (GPTS) and 3-aminopropyl trimethoxysilane (APTS) as starting materials, respectively, were investigated to obtain good and stable chiral separation. The BSA immobilized silica monoliths were evaluated in terms of morphology, electroosmotic flow, retention time, column efficiency and resolution of model compound (±)-tryptophan. The columns exhibited satisfactory run-to-run, column-to-column repeatability and maintained their enantioselectivity for more than 3 months. Both developed methods can baseline separate tryptophan enantiomers, whereas shorter retention time, better column efficiency, and enantiomeric recognition between two pairs of drug enantiomers (pantoprazole and atenolol) were obtained by the GPTS method. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

We report on a simple, fast and convenient method to engineer lipid vesicles loaded with quantum dots (QDs) by incorporating QDs into a vesicle-type of lipid bilayer using a phase transfer reagent. Hydrophilic CdTe QDs and near-infrared (NIR) QDs of type CdHgTe were incorporated into liposomes by transferring the QDs from an aqueous solution into chloroform by addition of a surfactant. The QD-loaded liposomes display bright fluorescence, and the incorporation of the QDs into the lipid bilayer leads to enhanced storage stability and reduced sensitivity to UV irradiation. The liposomes containing the QD were applied to label living cells and to image mouse tissue in-vivo using a confocal laser scanning microscope, while NIR images of mouse tissue were acquired with an NIR fluorescence imaging system. We also report on the fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) that occurs between the CdTe QDs (the donor) and the CdHgTe QDs (the acceptor), both contained in liposomes. Based on these data, this NIR FRET system shows promise as a tool that may be used to study the release of drug-loaded liposomes and their in vivo distribution. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Wien.
