JIMENEZ ALEMAN, Narda M.; CALERO CARBONELL, Jorge E.; PADRON YAQUIS, Alejandro S. and IZQUIERDO LOZANO, Julio C.. Analytical method by high resolution liquid chromatography for the determination of carbamazepine in human plasma. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2007, vol.41, n.1, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1561-2988.
One of the requirements to develop the studies of bioavailability and bioequivalence is to have analytic methodologies validated for the work with samples in biological fluids. A method was developed by high resolution liquid chromatography for the determination of carbamazepine in human plasma. A mixture of hydrogen phosphate of sodium: acetonitrile (65:35) adjusted to pH= 3.3 with phosphoric acid, flow of 1.2 mL/min and ultraviolet detection at 210 nm, was used as mobile phase. Propylparabene was used as an internal standard. According to the established regulations for the validation of the methods in biological fluids, the following parameters were studied: stability of the samples, lineality, specificity, precision, accuracy and limit of detection and quantification. The method proved to be specific and sensitive with a detection and quantification limit of 0.9 and 1.0 ng, respectively. The method was lineal, precise and exact in the range of concentrations of 1. 07 at 12.67 µg/mL. The mean recovery was not statistically different from 100.0 %. The analito in the proposed biological matrix remained in the studied period. The methodology described in this work is applied in our case to the study that evaluates the bioavailability and bioequivalence of a Cuban formulation of carbamazepine in healthy volunteers.
