A Simple Determination of Mizoribine in Human Plasma by Liquid Chromatography with UV Detection
Abstract:A simple liquid chromatography (LC) method was developed for determination of the therapeutic level of mizoribine in human plasma. After precipitation of plasma proteins with 6% perchloric acid, mizoribine was determined by LC with spectophotometric detection. The peak height for mizoribine was linearly related to its concentrations, which ranged from 0.09 to 3.13 μg/mL. Therefore, the limit of quantitation was considered to be 0.09 μg/mL. The accuracy was 104.96–107.37%. The intra- and interday relative standard deviation values were in the range of 1.10–3.25%. The detection limit was 0.025 μ g/mL, defined as a signal-to-noise ratio of 3. The plasma concentrations of mioribine were not related to the dosage. Because mizoribine was mainly excreted in the urine, the plasma concentrations of mizoribine might be affected by a change in renal function. Therefore, the mizoribine concentration in blood should be monitored and the dosage adjusted, depending on the condition of renal function. It was suggested that the present method may be applied well in the therapeutic drug monitoring for mizoribine.
