A rapid high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) determination of glibenclamide in human serum is described. Serum samples to which flufenamic acid has been added as internal standard were treated with acetonitrile as a protein precipitant. After centrifugation, separation and reconstitution, the redissolved residue was eluted from 5 mu Spherisorb C-8 reversed phase column at ambient temperature using a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile-water (45:55 v/v) at pH 3.7-3.8 and pumped at a flow rate 2 ml/min. The effluent was monitored at 230 nm. The analysis time was no longer than 12 min. A linear relationship between the peak height ratio (glibenclamide/flufenamic acid) and concentration was obtained in the range 20-400 ng/ml. A typical calibration curve has a regression equation y = 0.0035x + 0.015 (r = 0.9999). The detection limit of glibenclamide in serum was 20 ng/ml. The mean recovery of drug from serum samples spiked with known amounts of glibenclamide was 96.77%. Within-day and between-day coefficients of variation were 1.6-4.0% and 1.4-3.5%, respectively. Stability testing indicated that glibenclamide was stable for at least 10 days in serum -20 degrees C. The method developed was applied to determine some pharm...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.
