ROMERO DIAZ, Jacqueline Aylema; BEGUE DAVID, Marisleydi  and  GATO DEL MONTE, Armando. Simultaneous determination of Dorzolamide Chlorhydrate and Timolol Maleate. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.4, pp.436-445. ISSN 0034-7515.

Objective: to develop and validate an analytical high-performance liquid chromatography method applicable to quality control and to stability study of 2 % Dorzolamide plus 0.5 % Timolol eye drops. Methods: to simultaneously quantify both active principles in the finished product, separation was made through a Luna RP-18 (5 µm) (250 x 4 mm) column chromatography, with photodiode array detector at 254 nm an 295nm using a gradient with mobile phase A composed of acetonitrile: phosphate buffer pH 2.5: methanol (5:85:10) and mobile phase B: methanol and the quantification of this front to a reference sample using the external standard method. Results: in the linearity study, the correlation and determination coefficients were above 0.99 and 0.98 respectively. The percentages of having recovered were 99.57 for Dorzolamide and 99.93 for Timolol, with a variation coefficient for both active principles under 2 %. In the repeatability study, the means were 99.1 for Dorzolamide and 100.4 % for Timolol and the variation coefficients were within the set limits. In the study of intermediate precision, p values were higher than 0.05 for each of the studied levels. Conclusions: the developed analytical method was linear, precise, specific and accurate in the range of study concentrations; it is established for the quality control and stability study of the finished product since there were not analytical methods designed for these aims.
